Last night on the Gansevoort Hotel rooftop, 15 beautiful Latina models gathered for the party celebrating the premiere of their new reality show on SiTV, Model Latina NYC. The most delicious vodka lemonade was served as the family and friends of all the models anxiously awaited their arrival. Applause was heard all around when they finally walked in the door and “Empire State of Mind” blasted through the speakers.
In speaking to the models last night, they all shared the same feelings of pride, but extreme gratitude for being able to be a part of the experience. Nashlly Sokoli, who calls her self the flower that grows out of the Newark Concrete Jungle explained, “It was an amazing experience from start to finish. I learned and grew so much.” Her fellow contestant, Elora Prez had similar feelings, “it was very overwhelming. It was a different first time experience. It is something you’ll never forget!” Another one of the contestants, Carla Soto spoke about being born in Mexico, and not taking the American dream for granted: “I had to learn a lot to conquer the American dream. Now I’m getting closer to where I want to be. I’m about to move to L.A.!” She also talked about the living situation, “It was a hard competition though. You have the blonde girl, the tan girl, the brown girl…Imagine us all under one roof!"
The show, which is in its third season, consists of 15 models competing for a $25,000 modeling contract. It premieres Monday, August 2 at 9 pm. Be sure to check it out! Also, check out pictures and video from the event below!
