If you were not modelling had you ever considered doing another profession?
I wanted to be a spanish teacher abroad, travel around the world teaching spanish is really cool to me.
Football is a great passion of yours did you ever consider playing professionally?
Haha nahhh, I’ve been playing football since I remember as my father is a big fan of the sport, but I never considered being professional cause in Spain there is a lot of competition.
When did you first discover instagram and start gaining so many followers?
I think i joined ig about 4 years ago or so when not many people were on it. I gradually changed from tumblr to instagram (like many others) so I got all my followers from tumblr following me on ig.
Do you have any tips?
Just be you, dont post fake shit cause thats not what people want…
