Meet the Latina That Keeps Kylie Jenner in Check
One of the most talked about families are the Kardashians and behind the youngest two siblings is a Latina. Victoria Villarroel Gameros is Kylie Jenner's assistant. Twenty-five year old Villarroel is Venezuelan and already on top of her game, plus she’s also an entrepreneur.
Villarroel started out at Texas State University, then went to the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and received an Associate of the Arts in Design and Visual Communications; she even completed a fashion journalism course at the University of the Arts in London and in Madrid. She interned at a public relations firm, then at Vogue Magazine, which landed her an intern position at Jenner Communications.
Eventually she became an office manager at Jenner Communications, which got her closer to Kris Jenner, the "momager" to the Kardashian-Jenner clan. A video of Kylie Jenner giving Victoria a makeover recently went viral. Jenner is seen applying moisturizer to Victoria’s face and applying foundation with a makeup sponge. She fills in her eyebrows and completes her look with fake lashes and a coat of lipstick. Victoria also gets her hair crimped by her best friend, Anastasia Karanikolaou.
It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it! Here's to all the hard working Latinas making a name for themselves in the fashion industry and beyond. We’re excited to see where Victoria’s career takes her.
