Miss Makita 2018

BIO

  • What is your favorite sport and team/athlete?
  • I grew up by the beach in Southern California, as well as in Maui, Hawaii, so I love beach volleyball! I'm not the best at it haha but I do enjoy it for fun. I also love cheer and dance and have grown up competing in both. I've always been a Chargers fan so I'm really excited they're coming to LA!
  • What music do you like and who are your favorite artists?
  • I love to listen and sing along to modern music as well as oldie classics like Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra and of course my girl Britney Spears. I basically enjoy anything that has a good beat that I can dance and sing (terribly off key to) in my car and in the shower. I'm obsessed with Amy Winehouse because she was incredibly talented and I love that she wrote all of her own music and had her own unique sound.
  • Do you have a favorite movie or actor/actress?
  • My all time, ALL time favorite movie would have to be The Wedding Singer. I grew up watching that movie on repeat and I'm pretty sure Adam Sandler as 'Robby Hart' was the first man I ever fell in love with haha. My favorites include Johnny Depp, Humphrey Bogart, and Jennifer Aniston.
  • What do you like to do in your free time?
  • I really love to go hiking and exploring new places. I like to stay active and push myself by trying new outdoor sports and activities. I have not had much success in my attempts to master wake boarding or snowboarding yet haha but I love kayaking, paddle boarding and horseback riding. I practice yoga as much as I can and I really love it because I can do it anywhere. I bring my yoga mat with me whenever I travel and its the easiest way for me to stay active while on the go. Yoga is my favorite hobby because I benefit from it mentally and physically. I can use it to unwind and relax myself or for an intense workout.
  • What is your favorite vacation spot and food?
  • I've lived in Costa Rica and in Hawaii and I fell in love with both. However, I really want to do more traveling and explore new places I haven't been to before. So the "favorite" spot would be the next one to explore. My favorite food is Sushi! And also Rocky road ice cream. Not necessarily in that order haha.
  • Do you have a favorite quote?
  • Be a voice not an echo.
  • Tell us about your power tool experience.
  • I love to do home DIY projects and I've used basic power tools for those projects such as a power drill, circular saw, etc. However, I'm super excited to learn more and get to demo some awesome power tools I haven't tried yet this year as Miss Makita!

BIO

  • What is your favorite sport and team/athlete?
  • Soccer. Because it has a strong influence in the culture of my home town Medellin, Colombia. And my favorite person in the world, my grandma was the number one fan of that sport, I am too! So the Atletico Nacional from Medellin is my favorite team.
  • What music do you like and who are your favorite artists?
  • I like all type of music but my favorite is Baladas, Rancheras and Latin Pop. I love how they are so passionate and inspiring, making you connect with deep and raw emotions like love, rejection, betrayal, loss. It gives you goosebumps! Ana Gabriel, Rocio Durcal, Shakira, Juan Gabriel. Hispanic music has a lot of emotions!
  • Do you have a favorite movie or actor/actress?
  • The Lion King. The message is beautiful, we are all connected in the cycle of Life. Every time I see it I cry. Very emotional movie. My favorite actors are Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio
  • What do you like to do in your free time?
  • Sunbathing at the beach and at the pool. Share time with my family. I also like to snowboard in the winter.
  • What is your favorite vacation spot and food?
  • The beach because I like to hear the waves, it makes me relax and meditate. Nutella Crepes with Banana and Strawberries. YUMI! Colombian and Peruvian food too! I also like Mexican food but NOT spicy.
  • Do you have a favorite quote?
  • With love and patience, nothing is impossible.
  • Tell us about your power tool experience.
  • I have a lot of experience with the construction world because my dad is a Handyman. So since I was a little girl I was around tools and sometimes I helped him out. So I know how to do most things around the house like change the tiles, door handles, building closets, and many more things! My favorite Makita tool is the Drill.
