The Latino celeb I'd want to be best friends with: I fantisize about being best friends with Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez.
My first celebrity crush: Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 10 Things I Hate About You. I was eight-years-old. I’m now 22, and he’s still my celebrity crush.
Something people don't know about me: I wrote a fake obituary about myself as an assignment in high school. I stumbled upon it while packing for my move to NYC. The obituary said that I graduated from Northwestern, started my career at a magazine in New York City, and eventually settled down in London. I’ve conquered the first two! I visited London for the first time this summer, and I absolutely fell in love! Hopefully, I’ll achieve that final goal in ten or twenty years.
Guilty pop culture addiction: I’m shamelessly addicted to boy bands: One Direction, Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, The Wanted, Aventura. I love them all.
Celebrity I'd switch teams for: Naya Rivera.
