We asked her a few questions to get to know her better. Let's see what she has to say.

Mountain or the beach?
I think I like both, well I live in Limón, but I usually don’t go to the beach often, part of my family lives in a small town in Guanacaste, Nicoya and it's like mountain so I love spending time over there with my family, is like a detox in the mountain.

Some time ago, when I was in school I played soccer on the school team, I was the captain, I also did rhythmic gymnastics, but currently I only do exercises to strengthen my back.
