Since I was 5 my baby sitter was a seamstress and I would watch her sew, she

EIF: How long have you been in your professions? Tell us a little about
your music …When did you record and write your first song? What was it
about? What about your fashion design and photography career, what
sparked your interest in design and photography?
REAL MAMI :
My Father was a Latin
songwriter when I was a teen and he would always have a vocal coach
come over with my friend to help sing and record his songs. I was
always too scared to sing in front of anyone. I started making music
since around early 2000’s when Alicia Keys came out she was someone I
can relate to and made me more confident to start writing my own
songs. My very first song I wrote was about love and how I thought
love should feel. It was a poem and I turned it into a song. My
Fashion career actually began when I was in NC and met someone while
filming a movie and they invited me to my first fashion show. I made
all of my designs by hand. I began photography after I was tired of
trying to find photographers who were professional or knew what I
wanted. I also had a model friend in ATL who asked me to be his
photographer and he made sure I took all of the professional training
courses to become a successful Fashion Photographer. I also had so
much practice at Fashion shows and other events or with other artists.
My friend would even help me take pictures of myself after I did her

makes you express who you are individually for a special event or mood
and also helps create amazing memories in photos.📷

90’s throwback music and all of the Latin urban music.🎧🎵🎶

REAL MAMI: For Fashion, I would say stay educated and keep
up with current fashion, attend shows and also stay unique. For
photographers, learn as much as you can there is so much to know about
the camera, editing, poses and types of photography. Actresses and
models make sure you take acting classes and model classes. It can
make or break you. Also register with an agency do your research
first. I love working with kids because they are the most genuine and
they have so many new ideas and they are definitely passionate about
what they do. They also give me motivation when they tell me how happy
they are wearing my designs. I just want to be a role model to those
who don’t have anyone to look up to. Maybe I can inspire them the way
I was inspired by others.💓
