Q: WHAT ARE YOUR STATS (age, height, weight, size, etc.)?
A: I was born December 30th and am approximately 5’2” weighing 115 lbs.
I wear mostly SMALL in all clothing believe it or not but if you want to get more specific US 3/4 in bottoms and US 6.5 in women’s shoes.
Q: WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
A: I’m a born and bred New Yorker and not just any New Yorker – a Manhattanite.
Grew up in Washington Heights, moved to Gramercy during my HS years and lived most of my formidable life in Midtown East.
Q: YOU SAID YOU GREW UP IN WASHINGTON HEIGHTS – ARE YOU DOMINICAN? HABLAS ESPAÑOL?
A: Claro que si! A proud child of immigrant Dominican Parents and a fluent Spanish speaker thanks to my mom.
Q: WHERE DO YOU CURRENTLY LIVE?
A: I currently live in the Philadelphia, PA area (got married to the most wonderful man and was relocated here) but spend my time in both Philly & NYC
Q: SO YOU’RE AN ACTOR AND A BLOGGER?
A: Yes. My ultimate goal is to be a Film/TV actress with a range of roles like Tessa Thompson and I’m using my blog and digital networks as a platform to share my journey as I reach that status in hopes that I could inspire people along the way.
Q: IF YOU COULD PLAY ANY ROLE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
A: It would be a DREAM to play a doctor/resident/surgeon on TV or a streaming service like Netflix
See, my whole life I thought I would be a neurosurgeon – took extracurricular science classes growing up on Saturday mornings outside of my regular class schedule, entered HS at a Sophomore level, took every AP course offered, graduated Salutatorian (…I still feel salty about not being Valedictorian but carry on!), went to an Ivy League School as a pre-medical student, graduated and worked 7yrs in clinical research – & although I left the medical field to be an artist, it would be so badass to still live out that dream and say “Look, Mami! I did it!” lol
Q: WHO DESIGNED YOUR WEBSITE AND WHY IS YOUR BLOG CALLED ‘YOU DON’T KNOW JAC’?
A: I purchased a Squarespace template from the wonderful ladies at GoLive HQ then had queen Denisse Benitez of Chasing Denisse further customize my site to my liking. ‘You Don’t Know JAC’ is basically a play on my initials (JAC) and the phrase “you don’t know jack*” as an invitation to get to know me and see how I navigate life and the unknown
Q: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
A: I’m really chill, down to earth, and love a good laugh.
In terms of style and taste, comfy cool is my vibe but give me a reason to dress up and I’m pulling out all the stops – Chanel handbag included (oh, handbags, I love them, they are my weakness – and donuts...gummy bears are a close 2nd). I love a good ‘ol bodega sandwich but can’t say no to Michelin rated sushi – ya feel me?
**this should explain why my blog’s subtitle is ‘a little luxury, a lot of sass’ ;)
Q: I THINK YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND WOULD LOVE TO WORK WITH YOU!
