She earned an International bilingual baccalaureate degree from the Academia Britanica Cuscatleca and has a bachelor’s degree in Integrated Marketing from the Monica Herrera School of Communication.
From a young age, Vanessa participated in and enjoyed volunteer and social work. She credits her empathy to her parents after volunteering with them in small towns in her country and playing with other children from different backgrounds.
This experience compelled her to start her own charitable foundation, Angel Hands by Vane, to provide aid to children in hospitals, provide food to low-income communities and support people who’ve suffered after natural disasters. Vanessa’s hobbies include traveling, learning about other cultures, exercising and living a healthy and fulfilled life.
Vanessa loves animals and owns: horses, chickens, roosters, parakeet birds, cows, dogs, rabbits, fishes, and turtles.
Vanessa started traveling by herself at 7-years-old to visit family in other countries.
Vanessa lives and breathes fashion. When she was little she drew beautiful sketches of dresses and outfits and feels inspired when she's surrounded by creative people.
