My eyes and my smile.

Authenticity, kindness, and being unapologetically yourself.

I recently split with my partner of 7 years, Alejandro. We met when I was 18 and I still love him with all my heart. The thing I love most about him I is his loyalty. He’s been there for me through some of my darkest days, and I wouldn’t be here without him.

What does it mean to be featured as our Instinct Hottie?

What an honor. I am truly blessed and thankful to be featured. I’ve never viewed myself as a hottie. I’ve just viewed myself as average. I’m completely shocked and grateful to be recognized for all of my hard work at the gym.
