Nickname: Aimee Lee or BG which is short for baby girl. My mom calls me that ;)
What part of Miami (South Florida) are you from?
From the heart of Kendall Miami.
Describe yourself in five words.
Ambitious, Driven. Compassionate, Loyal, Outgoing
What’s the one thing you think everyone who visits Miami must do or see?
There are so many places in Miami that it's hard to choose just one, but since I have to, I'd have to say to anyone who's traveling to Miami that they have to visit South Beach. South beach has the most attractions. From spring break to memorial weekend to the Fourth of July and just about any and every day in between, its perfect. From shopping to dancing, eating and just enjoying yourself in the sun, south beach is beautiful and very inviting to tourists. It has a little bit of something for everyone. It has enough that you'd be fascinated with something different everyday that you spent out here.
What outfit in your closet best describes your personal style?
I have a very sporty/dancer/girly Style. Leggings, tight fitted bottom, loose top boots (always heels. I rarely wear flats) hat maybe beanie. That's my style very laid back
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Dance. It's my passion. It's my life. I always say 'live laugh love and dance'! It's what keeps me going. Dance is what drives me every day. Without dance I'd be nothing! I love my family and my loved ones and I love my music but without dance in my life I don't know who or where I'd be.
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I went on a zip line that was seven football fields long. It was in the mountains in Montana. It was the first time I had ever been snowed on. I was in awe with the scenery and the snow. It was just breathtaking.
If you could spend the night out in Miami with any celebrity who would it be and why?
I would definitely have to say hang out with Dwayne wade. I love me some Dwayne Wade. I personally think he is one of the best basketball players ever who has stepped out on the court. He was drafted out of college right into the NBA. Drafted in 2003 in the first round. He went 5th pick. That's awesome!! He was the finals MVP in 2006 ! He is a two-time NBA Champion. He has 2 rings. He made rookie of the year in 04 and he is the Miami Heat's all time leading scorer. He's the man!!!! He's so great and so special Marquette retired his #3 jersey when he graduated.
What social issue is most important to you?
I believe that the most important issue to me that is happening right now all over the world is the issue with the guns. We need to figure out a way to eliminate guns from any situation. Fully automatic and semi automatic guns are too available to people now our days. How many times are our schools and shopping malls and grocery stores going to be gunned down? It is becoming too normal and this is just not normal.
What and how would you contribute to the city of Miami?
I would help to clean up the streets by giving my time and efforts towards helping facilities that house the homeless. There are many great organizations in Miami and I'm grateful to live in a city where the community comes together to help those who are less fortunate.
What makes Miami girls different from all other girls?
Miami girls are different for many reasons. We are extremely confident in everything we do! We're driven and know what we want. We have the will power and strength to go after our dreams. What makes me different from other Miami girls is that I am not the follower. I am the leader of the pack and I'm not afraid to stand up for who I am and what I believe in.
If you had a magic wand, what would you change about Miami and why?
I would create more awareness and community projects that feed the hungry. Being that we live in a city of glitz, glamour and all things fabulous, there is no reason that those who are less fortunate should go hungry. There is enough food to go around, and around, and around, and we just need the extra hands to help get it into the hands of those in need.
