Why should you be the next Actress of the Month? Because I know where I come from and know where I'm heading. I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia immigrated here with my mom, who taught me perseverance. In spite of difficulties, obstacles, and some discouragement, she made a life for us. In the same manner I live by the motto 'Persitance beats Resistance' I plan to make a future for myself in this town and if doors don't open at the first knock... I will pound. I will constantly improve my craft, stay focused and always counting my blessings... which include the many angels that have helped me along the way.
