Interview with Julianna Peña below

“I think it’s (physical insecurities) helped me in a way, because it’s easy to strip down and sell something on Instagram and be this hot model, but I try to do it in a classy way where it’s like, I don’t have to take my clothes off for people to invest in what I do.

“So it’s almost like a thing that’s benefited me in another way as well, because I have a daughter and I want to set a great example for her. I don’t want her to be, in years , on Instagram and sees his half-naked mother.

“I’m not trying to punch anybody for doing this, you know, get your paper boo-boo, do what you gotta do.

“But for me, it puts me in a situation where I have to sell myself in a different way that isn’t about taking my clothes off and trying to be a person who sells sex.”
