We told my grandma the pizza was going to be huge. She thought we were joking. The look on her face when they brought it out was hilarious!

Surprised my mom with custom purple converse and a special message. Cancer doesn’t stand a chance against her!! #TataCancer

Ollie’s day out.

When my manager called to let me know I was asked to be in @jessiej’s music video for her new song #Queen I said yes right away! Little did I know how extremely nervous I would be. The funny thing is I didn’t have to speak at all. Put me in front of a large crowd of people and I feel at home on stage. Put me in front of a few people and a camera and my stomach was full of butterflies!! I started feeling so self conscious and so nervous. Right before it was my turn to go up @jessiej hugged me and told me she wrote the song for all women to be able to look at themselves and love what they see both inside and out. It was an honor to stand along side so many #Queens!

I’ve been thinking of so many different things I could write about my mom. Instead I decided to share a perfect example of her loving heart. I was with her when she found out she has cancer. When she hung up the phone and told me I immediately started crying. Right away she comforted me then called my dad and each of her sisters. Throughout every call she stayed strong. She was the one reassuring everyone that we will get through this no matter what. Even after we met with her doctor to find out what the journey ahead will look like, she was more concerned about my grandparents and making sure they are getting their medications and being taken to their appointments. To still put others before herself even in the face of a scary diagnosis is incredible. She is everything that a superwoman embodies. Today we celebrate you, mom. Love you!! #mothersday

Bring on the weekend, please.

And tonight we celebrate! 🎉🎓

It’s happening!!! @txst #graduation

Since I’ll be home for more than a few days it’s time to get back into my normal routine. Today consisted of Christmas jammie pants, a big T-shirt, and cleaning breaks with Diego.

A few weeks ago my family and I were out having dinner before we all got back to a busy week. Little did I know, my parents had a surprise in store! I found out I'm being honored with the Young Hispanic Professional Association of Austin Young Distinguished Leader Award at their annual gala! I couldn't be more grateful! You can read more about the award in the link in my bio!

No makeup Monday is the name of the game today! I challenge you to pick a day to walk out your door with a bare face. Instead use your inner confidence and smile to help you glow!
