Tell us something surprising about you?
I am one of the very few people in the world who holds three different citizenships (Canadian, Spanish, and Peruvian)! So it's tough to answer when someone asks me "where I'm from exactly."

Were you excited to shoot for Playboy?

Yes! I was so excited. I've always loved the magazine, and the shoot was so much fun, in a beautiful location in Laguna Beach, CA, with an awesome team. I'm so grateful for the opportunity.

What inspires you?

Traveling (I’ve already visited 33 different countries and have lived in six!), and learning about new cultures. People watching, when in different countries, really gets my creative juices flowing. I write a lot and also love photography.

Why did you choose to pursue a career in modelling?
