Tell me about yourself.
NS: Nae Santana (Renee Escobar), 22, and currently in Boston, Massachusetts. I’m an assistant store manager at Bodega as well as a freelance model.
How would you describe your personal style?
NS: I would describe my personal style as a cozy girl lol I love being comfortable. I have more sneakers than most men I know.
How do you decide what to wear in the morning?
NS: After my room is a complete tornado lol I usually start off by what shoes I’m wearing and the rest comes pretty natural to me.
Which sneakers do you currently have in rotation?
NS: The sneakers I have in rotation right now are the red Nike Sock Dart’s, Vans Sk8-Hi, Jordan “True Blue” 3’s and Nike Huaraches.
You're definitely no stranger to risky but artsy shoots. What advice would you give to someone that's trying to learn how to be confident and comfortable in their own skin?
Ns: I was never comfortable in my own skin but self-love is important. People can see your confidence through your shoots. My advice is just to do what makes you happy and to not care about what other people think. I’m an artist and I’d like my photos to tell a story. I also like to bring it where others haven’t.
How long have you been modeling?
NS: I have been modeling since 2011.
Complete this sentence. "If you really knew me you would know that..."
