  • In her own words: "I am no different than a lot of Latinos my age. I am of Dominican descent, and as such I sometimes listen to bachata, other times to pop, R&B and hip-hop, as well as other music genres, which leads me to believe that other Latinos my age like to listen to artists who can represent the mix that we all are."
