My two greatest loves are the ocean and fashion. What better place to live than Cabarete, Dominican Republic? I wake up in the morning to catch some waves at Encuentro, work on my bikini business and coaching during the day, and kitesurf in the windy afternoons. What more could a girl ask for?
But a life like this doesn’t come without some sacrifice. In 2009, I gave up a life of high profile jobs in consulting companies like KPMG and PwC to travel the world, get out of my comfort zone, and discover a different way of living. When I first arrived in Cabarete, I started a business giving kiteboarding lessons. After becoming involved in the kitesurfing scene in Cabarete, I became an Ambassador for nonprofit organisation, Kite Boarding for Girls. Through KB4girls, I can introduce and coach girls from around the world to my favourite sport.
Spending so much time on the water, it didn’t take me long to realize that there was not a secure sports bikini on the market that looked stylish! This was the inspiration for BiancaBikinis, my line of hand-made bikinis that stay on in the water with a touch of Italian glamour. I now spend half of my year in Cabarete soaking up the sun, enjoying exciting sessions on the water, and designing and marketing my bikinis, and the rest of my time in Italy where I produce them.
Some people say I’m ‘living the dream’. We are all capable of living our dreams, as long as we know what that dream is, and are willing to work hard to get there!
What does it mean to be a Brand Ambassador?
For me, it means to truly believe in and support the product or organisation I am working with. I represent brands that I will stand by, that I can proudly advocate for, and that fit with my own personal style. As a Brand Ambassador, I work to promote my partners, grow their communities, and positively represent their brand.
