What chance encounter changed your life forever? The fact that Jayro (our casting director) had come to Santa María, my hometown in Guatemala, to run auditions for my first movie.


What are some of the events in your life that made you who you are? I feel like “Ixcanul” definitely changed the course of my life professionally. It has made me stronger on every level.

What gives your life meaning? My family. Going back to that specific place that grounds me, that reminds me where I come from and that has given me its entire support to take on every opportunity that comes my way.


What do you wish to accomplish with what you do? I hope to inspire women and girls out there to embark on this crazy journey called life by pursuing their wildest dreams.
