So, other than English, what language(s) do you speak?

“I speak Spanish fluently thanks to my Mom who would always talk to me in Spanish.”

Where have your career aspirations taken you?

 “I started modeling when I was 16 years old for a magazine called Surf Illustrated. I’ve been modeling ever since (Linna is 23 now.) I also work as a hostess, server and bartender. I’m a people person and all my jobs give me the opportunity to meet people from all around the world.”

A surf magazine? Does that mean that you know how to surf? Any other hobbies?

” I do surf and i enjoy swimming and exercising, especially lifting weights.”

What motivates you in your career and personal life?

“My biggest motivation is my family, there is nothing better than putting a smile on my parents faces. Having their support is what pushes me to follow my dreams.”

You are pretty tall for a woman at 5’9, so I’m thinking you were pretty good at basketball growing up, right?

“Everyone thinks I’m good at basketball because of my height. In Reality, I suck at basketball.”

Do you have any pet peeves?

“When people cut me while I drive. Ugh!”

Sports’s fans are known to collect memorabilia. Do you collect anything?

“High heels. I collect high heels. LOL”

What is your favorite TV show?

“The show Cops. lol. It’s so much fun to watch! “
