I live in… Barcelona, Spain. My parents are separated so I spend one week with my mum, and then one week with my dad. I am still at high school. Living in Barcelona is pretty cool. It’s a big city, but not too big, and I can go to the beach at the weekends, or go to the mountains. Everything is pretty close by so it is easy to get around. Saying that, the one thing I don’t like is that there are are too many tourists.

Being a teenager is… It’s cool. I can go and do things now without needing to be with an adult, like I can go shopping, go to the beach or meet with my friends. I still have restrictions when going out at night though. I really wish I had more freedom to do what I wanted in the evenings. I am constantly talking to my parents about this!

Issues facing teenagers are… Bulling and sexisim.

My ambitions are… My biggest dream would be to be the fashion editor of an international magazine. I would also like to be an interior designer. And I would love to live in Soho, New York.

Things or experiences? For me both are important.

My concerns for the future are… That I won’t be as successful as I want to be.

Is the future bright? I definitely think things are going to be more difficult for my generation than they were for my parent’s generation because the world has changed a lot, but I think that if I work hard and focus on my dreams I will still be able to achieve my goals

I look up to… Coco Chanel, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne.

Friends are… They are very important to me. Because I don´t have any brothers or sisters they are like my family.
