NR: How did you end up with 6 dogs?
AR: Did I end up? Hahahaha I have Marlon since he was one month old, they gave him to me six years ago, and he is my favorite being ever. I adopted Yoko in Spain and the person she used to live with told me that she was having her heat in June. But she got it in March, in the middle of my move to the states, so I couldn’t do anything cause we were traveling, and the very first night we got to Miami, boom… and 2 months later, we are 7 in the family.

NR: What are your goals in life and career for the coming 5 years?
AR: I think goals are limits and I don’t like it, it would limit my experience in this world. I am focused on becoming a better version as a living being and as an artist.

NR: How did you become an actress?
AR: I believe that one is Born with a specifically talent, or multiple, our task is to find out in which area we can be our best version. I am lucky that I found what I love to do in life. I love the investigation and to see life under other perspectives, and understanding others mind, that is to me acting. It is a wonderful tool to stop judging cause it helps you to walk in other shoes.

NR: Do you have any specific hobby?
AR: I love, love…being with my friends (my six dogs), love reading about psychology, watch documentaries, videos about quantum physics and go to good movies.

NR: Why did you choose to become a #BLIXTIZINFLUENCER?
AR: Cause I believe that another way of living is possible, cause I think empathy can make us evolve. Cause we already did enough pain to these living beings that they are here to beautify our life and to teach us about empathy and compassion. Cause, another way of living is possible and is time t do it. One got what ones give and if you want to have peace in our hearts, there is no other way but changing. Because is time to say thank you with acts and cause it’s time to be responsible of the change we want to see. I am very thankful to be part of this team and makes me have faith and believe that I am doing something good with my life

NR: Which people or books have had the most influence on you and why?
AR: “Man’s search for meaning” Victor Frankl. Being simple to me it is a great book who went very deep in my soul…It made me realize what meditation does, we are free to change perceptions, and perceptions it is everything is our freedom, we are always free no matter what, to change our perception.

NR: What do you want to achieve with your Influence?
AR: I want respect, support animals right, I want to make people think that another way of living is possible. Animals are not here for us, they are here as we are, as the soul they are… No, I don’t feel I can or want to teach anyone how to live, I am here to learn it myself.

NR: Which is the best collaboration that you have done with a brand so far?
AR: With “Be vegan” ,Dr Goerg” and “Melissa shoes”. They were giving me so many products and they had me as the face of the brand, it was very cool and i felt we were doing great things together.

NR: What brand do you dream about doing a collaboration with?
AR: To me, it’s not about a specific brand, it’s about what the brand do… It’s important to make people find products that is cruelty-free and vegan. In the beauty industry for example we have to do a lot, because there is many people getting used to specific products and don’t want to change.

AR: My true passion is art, acting, investigation, i am an actress and i love it, i love art and be able to express through it.
