Q&A

When was the last time you cried?

NATYIA

My eyes get watery easily, even during a commercial or movie. However; it takes a lot for me to actually cry. The last time I cried was when I had to say goodbye to my mom after she visited us from Puerto Rico.

 

NANCY

The last time I cried was on a day that I had to attend a court hearing for my divorce and then I visited my grandmother Lupita. I will never forget her words "No man is worth your tears plus you'll get wrinkles" the most that impacted was that I could get wrinkles from crying so I decided not to shed anymore tears for my divorce. Since then, I've also cried of joy...and when I remember about the wrinkles I just put cream on around my eyes.

 

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

NATYIA

Yes, I would. I consider myself to be a good friend. 

 

NANCY

Yes, 100% because I value friendships. I have always been loyal to my friends. I do not like to do anything to them that I would not like to be done to me.

 

Do you use sarcasm a lot?

NATYIA

No.

 

NANCY

No.

 

What's the first thing you notice about people?

NATYIA

Hands/Nails.

 

NANCY

I observe the face because my mom always tells me to be cautious with anyone that does not look at you when speaking to you.

 

Scary movie or happy endings?

NATYIA

Happy endings. 

 

NANCY

I love scary movies but since I can not sleep well afterwards, I stopped watching them long ago and I prefer happy endings.

 

Favorite smells?

NATYIA

Sooo many essential oils

What's the furthest you've ever been away from home?

NATYIA

Not too far..the Caribbean...but that's home too!

 

NANCY

Apart from going to Florida from Puerto Rico several times before moving to that state, I went to Spain for the first time at 14 without my parents. I went with a family that is friends of our family, for the whole summer. I also visited Morocco, France, Portugal, Aruba, St Thomas, Dominican Republic and some states of the United States.

 

Do you have any special talents?

NATYIA

Growing up I was able to imitate just about any accent. Now-a-days, I'd say that working a full-time job with a toddler as a co-worker is my special talent. 

 

NANCY

Yes, being trustworthy. People are like an open book with me. They may not even know me yet they talk to me and even share some of their problems to vent.

I was born in Puerto Rico.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

TV novela actress, journalist, and TV producer

 

NANCY

As a child I wanted to be an archaeologist, flight attendant, or a lawyer. Finally, I registered at the university to study theater because I wanted to be an actress but my dad did not like the idea so I studied Mass Communications with a minor in Spanish instead, then I decided to go back to pursue Investigative Journalism.

 

How many countries have you been to?

NATYIA

Just one so far.

 

NANCY

Eight countries

Favorite memory from childhood?

NATYIA

Spending weekends in Disney and traveling to Puerto Rico whenever school was out.

 

NANCY

I lived in the country for a while, near the city and I loved playing on the farm with my brothers and cousins. We used to play hide-and-seek and I loved to hide in the industrial egg incubators because, as there were several, it was not easy for them to find me. When I poked my head out several times my grandfather saw me and called my attention because you could not be opening the incubators because of the temperature that the eggs had to have for the chicks to be born.
From my childhood I could write a book...I had a spectacular one.

 

How would you describe your fashion sense?

NATYIA

Comfortable and Classy.

 

NANCY

I wear what I like and feel comfortable in, I do not think it has to be branded even though I like to get dresses designed for special occasions.

 

Tell us one of your bad habits?

NATYIA

I put too much pressure on myself. 

 

NANCY

I have been criticized that I am sincere, I say what I think and feel, there are people who are not ready to listen to what they do not want to hear.
