Tell us how you were discovered. Seven years ago, I was studying and babysitting three kids in Paris at a restaurant I love called Coffee Parisien when my [now] agent from Eskimo Models approached me. Favorite shoot? When I have the opportunity to travel to new places and work with amazing people, those are the best. Why Miami? I travel so much. When I arrive back home, I want to feel relaxed. You can’t always find that in other big cities. Fitness routine? Pilates! You work out all your

muscles and get a fit dancer’s body. I like Pilates ProWorks. I also do spinning twice a week; I love SoulCycle and RedBike. Cheat meal? I adore chocolate. I went to Quinto La Huella and I had the volcan de chocolate. Sometimes you just need it! Thoughts on social media? Fashion is changing. It’s about influencers more than ever before, and brands want people with followings. When I started growing my social media, I also started getting more work. You’re also breaking

into acting… It’s my dream! I went to Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute in New York, and now I’m going to Mexico to shoot a small part for a film. I can’t tell you yet! Who inspires you? Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie, and Natalie Portman. They are all super sexy but also elegant and intelligent. You starred in the music video for “Bobo.” What was it like working with J Balvin? It was so much fun! He is very easygoing, and we became good friends. I admire him and love his music. @danielaboterofficial
