City: New York

Intro: I was born in Dominican Republic and I currently live in NYC. I have been a model for approximately five years, before becoming a model I was studying architecture back home.

What are the lessons you’ve learnt in lock-down: I learned the value and importance of having your family close to you, I learned the importance of having a strong mind, coping with everyday situations which I had not experienced before.

What do you miss most / what are you looking forward to: I really miss the days when I could go to concerts, go on a trip, be able to sneeze and have no one look at you strangely. I hope that this all improves, that the people who are sick will eventually improve, I hope that we all understand that the best way to move forward is if we are united living together in this world.

What have you learned about yourself this year: I realized that I can be strong and that I can reinvent myself. This knowledge has given me a lot of joy. At some point I was in limbo, but now I have a better perspective on things.

Any projects you have been working on that you would like to talk about? I can't say much but I'm preparing for what is next.

Thoughts for the new year: Good vibes!! I wish with all my heart that each of us have a better year, that we can achieve our goals and our dreams, good health and happy life.

What are you wearing and why were you drawn to it: I am wearing a jumpsuit. I chose this one for how functional and elegant it is, I like the colour, I am thinking of wearing it for Christmas.

Luisana wears: The Lexia Jumpsuit in champagne.
