In December, she is booking a one-way ticket to Puerto Rico, where she hopes to help the fashion industry while building a career in pharmacy.

“I feel that Puerto Rico has a great potential in fashion and we are not exploding it enough. I want to search for local talent that people have not seen. I also want to create a fashion event that elevates Puerto Rican fashion internationally,” she says.
