As a contestant on L’Isola dei Famosi (Celebrity Survivor), you experienced all kinds of challenges. What was the toughest and what strategy did you employ to get ahead?
The toughest part was getting along with a group of strangers. That to me was a lot more difficult than being hungry.
Your experience in entertainment includes commercials, television, theatre, and more. What is your favorite medium/platform to perform in, and what do you hope to pursue for the rest of your career?
I enjoyed every medium/platform because they are all different in their own way. I especially enjoyed theater because you are one on one with the audience and you can’t beat that feeling.
Music videos are part of your body of work. How important is music, and being involved in the music industry, in relation to your passions?
I have been in a couple of music videos and I truly enjoyed being a part of them.
Italy is a favorite destination for many. What locations would you recommend for visitors as must see spots?
I have traveled quite a bit and the Del Duomo church is by far the most spectacular piece of architecture I have seen.
How do you handle the notoriety that comes with being known as one of the most beautiful women in the world?
I don’t really see it that way. I just live my life and try not to let things like that get in my head.
What did you enjoy most about representing Venezuela during your reign as Miss Amazonia?
They prepare you very well culturally. For me, it was a big opportunity where you learn so much. You take classes, they prepare you and teach you proper etiquette, public speaking, appearance, how to walk, dress, and put on makeup properly.
UnderSense was one of your recent films, what other future projects do you have coming?
I do have some projects in the works but you will have to wait and see.
As a model, you have modeled for some impressive brands. Is there a particular designer or brand you’d love to collaborate with?
I love fashion! Tom Ford and Cavalli would be great to collaborate with.
Outside of modeling and acting, do you have any interests or hobbies that someone wouldn’t expect from you?
I love watching my son play soccer and I enjoy being involved with all of his extracurricular activities.
How do you keep your life balanced between motherhood and career while maintaining your gorgeous physique?
It’s not easy, but I try to give my son my undivided attention. When he is in school I get my work out in and get to catch up on work.
Coming from a heavily cultured environment, how have you been influenced by your Italian and South American background?
In a way, Italians and Venezuelans are similar. We are very family oriented and love to eat good food. I have been influenced by language, style, and way of life . I lived in Italy for 13 years so the Italian culture plays a big role in my life.
