Swim Daily, Cris Urena Q&A

Swim Daily caught up with Cris Urena, and asked her how she started her career in fashion, what her family thinks of her modeling lingerie and what makes her a Latin girl.

CRIS URENA is many things: a dancer, a chef, a proud Dominicana and, if you ask her, a nursing student, which is what she happened to be at the time some impatient friends sent her pictures to a New York modeling agency. 

So yeah...
