—The designers value how many followers you have before you know if they want to hire you. Be active on Instagram es one of the most important parts of the job to be a brand Ambassador. Companies seeking a face to identify (and related) with the public who want to attract–said the model in an interview with El País.

(Who is this girl?) and, since then, dozens of specialized vehicles began to summon her increasingly for editorials, reports and articles.
