What do you do and why do you do it?
With every step of the way I try to enjoy every experience that comes up, I am currently the Graphic Designer at Bright a start-up for solar energy. I have to say I love my work because it allows me to work in a place that embodies my values, and I get to support a cause I believe in. Always looking for new experiences and try to travel as much as possible.
You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?
Lyrics matter so much, I have always looked for songs that make sense to me and so I have had all kinds of playlists but recently love listening to Morat (on repeat).
What are the best TV shows of all time?
Such a hard question, I don't know if I have an answer for an all time favorite but I can say that design wise I loved Abstract because it embodies the passion that drives designers to create and imagine.
What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?
Tijuana and Tepito mainly because of security reasons not a place you want to be in the city as a tourist.
What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?
So many things! I'm not a one thing kind of gal but I can say that I love riding my bike and I wish I could do it more often especially on Sunday mornings on Reforma.
What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Mexico City and where did you get it?
Gusanos de Maguey, look it up, it is a cultural thing I can't explain but they are actually not that bad.
Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?
AHH this is such a difficult question, so many options. I would definitely recommend trying different kinds of Mexican candy which offer a combination of sweet and spicy flavor. Try miguelito, maggi, salsa ingluesa and add them to your chips with a little bit of lime, so tasty!
What’s the one place you think is underrated in Mexico City?
MUAC museum because it is far away and not a lot of people get to go to it.

the City Centre is a must, a lot of activities to do their and you can spend a day or two visiting all the places.
