Cristina Rafuls Biography
I was born and raised in Miami, FL. My father is a financial consultant for Merrill Lynch and my mother works at a local high school as a registrar. I also have an older brother and a younger brother. We all descend from Cuban heritage and are second generation Cubans. As of this moment, I am currently a sophomore at Miami Dade College where I am studying public relations. It is my dream to take my degree in public relations and to use it to one day run my own PR Company with a focus on fashion.
Ever since I was a little girl looking at Victoria’s Secret catalogues, I knew that fashion and styling was my calling. I was hooked on shows like Project Runway and I admired the rise and work of Lauren Conrad from the Hills. Even now, I am starting my own career in the business of fashion by interning with Tara Inc. during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. This opportunity has opened new doors for me and I am more excited than ever to be a part of the world of fashion. I hope that this internship will lead to bigger and better things.
