What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to continue in the world of Fashion. I love watching fashion shows and trends of the world. Maybe I can also become a dance instructor, so definitely something in this area.

What do you like about yourself?

I like that I am being myself all the time. I express myself in the way I dress, my hair or through my accessories without worrying to ‘Fit In’. I focus on feeling happy with myself.

What do you do when you feel sad?

I try to reflect on what made me sad. I put on some music. I dance or even dress up just to make myself feel better.

Who is your best friend and why?

My best friend is my cousin, because since little we have been growing up more like sister and also Kiana is my best friend because we are very alike in many things.

What is your message to all the children of Aruba?

Follow your passion. Give your utmost at school and be open to learn new things. Everything has a negative side to it, but try to focus on the positive always.
