As a kid I spent a lot of summers at our family farm back in Ecuador. I have so many fond memories of just hanging out with cousins, going to my abuelita’s wild ragers, enduring long nights of telefunken.. agh I could go on. Despite the distance and years, my brothers and I still find a way to get the cousins together for a trip somewhere in the world and relive those memories!Who is your favorite Latinx pop culture icon?

Mexican food in general is my go-to cuisine but if I had to choose It would be Pozole. There is a place in Long Beach called Panxa Cocina that has the best Pozole, go check it out.

ANSS! It blends all your makeup together and truly stays all day and night if you need it to.What is your favorite Latinx dish?
It’s basic but chips and salsa are my comfort food and I joke that I have a separate stomach JUST for chips and salsa.
I celebrate my Puerto Rican heritage every day in almost every aspect of my life: from the food I cook, the music I listen to, the vocabulary I use, the decor & art in my home… It’s incredibly important for me to feel connected to my roots by staying connected to my family and going back to PR as often as I can. But ultimately, the most important way that I aspire to celebrate my heritage is by supporting and empowering LatinX women in business. We are invincible and our sazón truly is our force!Who is your favorite Latinx pop culture icon?
My favorite LatinX pop culture icon has always been JLO. Growing up, she was the only public figure I was truly able to see myself in. She leveraged the doors that other artists opened before her (Rita Moreno, Gloria Estefan, Selena Quintanilla…) and broke so many new barriers. She was the 1st ever global latin female superstar-turned-business mogul, and in her ascension to success, she constantly celebrated her heritage and latinos around the world. Because of that, she will always be an inspiration to me.What is your go-to Urban Decay product and why?

Peso Pluma has easily become my favorite Latinx pop culture icon. Within such a short time he brought Mexican music back to the top with all his hits.What is your go-to Urban Decay product and why?
My favorite Latinx dish is birria tacos. It is such a perfect dish for any time of the day. The flavor is so rich and the consome with a side of rice is the perfect combination.What is your favorite Latinx dish?
My go to Urban Decay product has to be the All Nighter setting spray. That setting spray is a must in my makeup routine and it helps keep my makeup on all day. I also love to use it in between my cream products for extra protection.
Since my parents are separated, I get to celebrate on multiple occasions- I get twice as much Latinx feasts that are absolute fire. Different cooking styles but equally as delicious.Who is your favorite Latinx pop culture icon?
Bad Bunny. No questions asked.What is your go-to Urban Decay product and why?
Rice, beans and breaded chicken. It’s my death-row meal. My favorite drink is Coquito. A classic Puerto-Rican drink, especially during holiday season. It signifies the coming of Christmas. And it means “little coconut”- tastes exactly how it sounds but with a milky-vanilla-cinnamony flavor. I prefer it with Puerto-Rican rum, but you can make it virgin-style too, of course.What is your favorite Latinx dish?
I’m torn between All Nighter Setting Spray and 24/7 Liquid Inks Liner. It’s the easiest most precise eyeliner I’ve ever used, but I also cannot live without that setting spray. It can be 115 degrees in Puerto Rico and my makeup is stuck to me like a rat in a trap.
