DAKOTA MARTINEZ, 21, Atlanta at New York Models reflecting isolation
F WORD: What are your top 5 interests? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: Fishing, travelling, fashion, basketball, and being with my dog Tank [LOL].
F WORD: How have you been dealing with the whole isolation thing? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: It’s driving me insane. I wish I could be out playing basketball with friends but I’m taking care of myself and doing whatever I can to keep my family safe, that’s about all I can do.
F WORD: What have you been doing to occupy your time and mind? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: Trout fishing non-stop in the mountains with my dog Tank! Also, my little sister (Gianna) introduced me to the TikTok world so that’s been keeping me very entertained!
F WORD: How are you feeling about the COVID-19 pandemic? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: Super surprised, I didn’t see it reaching this far. Fortunately, I haven’t had anyone in my life directly affected by the virus but my heart goes out to the families who are suffering, though. I just hope it all comes to an end soon so everyone’s lives can return to normal.
F WORD: What are your thoughts on how your government and the world are dealing with it? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: I like to believe everyone is doing the best they can to keep themselves and everyone else safe because when it comes down to it, people’s lives are what matters most.
F WORD: What is the best thing you’ve been able to do since isolation? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: I travel a lot due to modelling, so it’s been nice to finally be with my dog 24/7.
F WORD: What do you miss the most right now due to isolation? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: Traveling, meeting and working with so many different types of people! I love modelling and this isolation thing is the complete opposite of what I’m used to! It’s really made me think about how lucky I am for all the great people in my life.
F WORD: What would be your perfect soundtrack for this time? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: Location by Khalid, because I want things to return to normal and people go back to hanging out and dropping locations.
F WORD: Can you suggest a movie/series/or book we should check out during isolation? DAKOTA MARTINEZ: Ozark on Netflix! Literally can’t stop watching it! Almost done with Season 3!
F WORD: A hopeful statement to encourage others: DAKOTA MARTINEZ: “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity” - Albert Einstein
F WORD: Favourite f-word: DAKOTA MARTINEZ: Fishing! : )
