I wanted to highlight my Mexican origins [et] cultural mixing. I think it’s something worth seeing in Quebecargues the one that viewers also saw and heard within the Flores clan in the second season ofA family resemblancein 2013. We speak English, French and Spanish at home. It’s part of my baggage.

Since my visit to The voice and thanks to the support I got from people in Gatineau, I felt like I could let myself go. I give myself the right to try [de nouvelles choses] and see where it will take me. »

I have a very dynamic, colorful and joyful image, but I still have depth. All my songs have an important meaning. I’m more than just a smiling girl and bubbly. »
