We did a Q & A with her. Check it………
TELL US WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU DO?
I’m the new Communications and Experience Manager. I love to help bring to life the stories about the amazing affix community we work with and the beautiful and hilarious people at affix.
WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO AFFIX?
The people, the colours, the insaneee energy – what isn’t there to love? But mostly it was the open-mindedness and point-of-difference that absolutely sold it.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING FOR AFFIX?
affix is cool. I mean, REALLY cool. They are also growing quickly. My job? To show the world how truly amazing these people are. There’s a lot that people don’t know or realize about affix, and I’m so excited to have the creative agency to share not only how we’re different, but also why we’re different. Stay tuned!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT WORKING WITH AFFIX SO FAR?
Probably the fact that I’ve never laughed at work as much as I have in the last couple of weeks. Sore abs for days!
WHAT SORT OF TASKS DOES A WORKING DAY INVOLVE FOR YOU?
So far, it’s been a lot of note-taking, to be honest. I’m still in a bit of an “empathy” phase, where I’m trying to understand and absorb as much as possible before making some magic. However, no two days will be the same, that’s for sure. Whether it’s writing epic copy, planning out fun campaigns, or just brainstorming ways to showcase how Affix shines, my tasks and projects will vary and evolve constantly.
WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR SPACE?
I love the power of words. From their context and connotation to the way they can empower and influence humans, evoke dormant emotions and quite literally change the course of history. That is the core reason I love this space.
WHAT’S ONE THING THAT ALWAYS MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU’RE HAVING A BAD DAY AT WORK?
I never feel like I have a “bad” day at work, but on the days that I’m not totally in the flow of things, I love putting on a great playlist and letting that energy fuel my energy.
WHAT’S SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
My first language is Spanish, and I’m a dual citizen of Colombia and the US. My Colombian passport doesn’t serve much of a purpose, but it was super handy when I travelled to North Korea! (More than one thing, oops!)
COFFEE OR TEA?
Coffee AND tea. I don’t discriminate! My caffeine tolerance is super low, so I either go for a chai latte, English Breakfast tea, or half-shot almond/oat milk latte.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
I love all kinds of music, but I can be pretty basic to be honest. As in “I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT” basic, but oh well #hatersgonnahate. I’m also a podcast-a-holic and am a sucker for inspirational and spiritual content like Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations.
FIVE FAV THINGS?
- Really delicious, savory and spicy food
- Hypoallergenic dogs (I love them all, but I can’t deal with the shedding)
- Having a great morning ritual (exercise, meditate, etc.)
- Adventuring around the planet; currently obsessed with freediving
- Having really deep and meaningful convos with my partner, family and best friends
FAV GET PUMPED SONG?
I NEVER listen to music in Spanish, but with the recent increase in epic collabs, I’ve been loving anything with a Reggaeton influence.
SAT MORNING RITUAL?
Wake up around 7, make a delicious brekky of eggs, bacon, toast, and allllll the veggies possible, then head over to my local farmer’s market to buy groceries for the week. All while enjoying the beautiful Brissy sunshine.
