My biggest difference is using my lifelong intuition and female intelligence. I am a diplomat’s daughter and I have lived in many countries and cultures so I have this advantage of knowing and understanding each other, my biggest secret and EMPATIA, I can put myself in the other’s place and be an EMPATHIC human being.

The world is changing so fast, so is technology, I’m here now in LA to live the change and contribute my talent. I honestly only see that there can be positive changes with the human awareness that we are all connected and that we must respect nature and each other. Yesterday I saw a Will Smith documentary, one strange rock, and I saw that everything is interconnected, and we have a lot of power in entertainment to bring people more awareness and information.
