Check out some fun facts about this cool chica you can find at @VanessaLYbarra (Twitter) and @VanessaYbarra77 on Instagram!
1. Where were you born?
New Westminster. I was born on January 1st at 5:23am and was the first baby born in the city! #celebrity
2. Best childhood memory?
Almost every afternoon in the summer my sisters and Mom would have a picnic on the floor where we would talk and laugh for hours. Such fond memories!
3. Favourite restaurant?
When I lived in Kamloops for a year I ate at ‘Hello Toast’ almost every weekend. It’s an adorable, ma-and-pa restaurant located right in downtown Kamloops with the best red pepper, spinach eggs benedict known to man kind!
4. Favourite singer/band?
I love Florence and the Machine, especially the song ‘Hunger’.
5. Favourite movie?
‘Something’s Gotta Give’ with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson or ‘Blue Jasmine’ with Cate Blanchett. Can you tell I’m a big lover of quirky, dramatic romantic movies?!
6. If you could be any animal, what would it be?
A bird. How amazing would it be to fly?
7. Favourite sound?
Christmas carols. No joke, I love Christmas that much and am in heaven when we play 24-7 Christmas beginning as early as mid November on 107.7 Pulse FM!
8. Best advice you ever received?
“Don’t mess up one of the best things in your life just because you’re a little unsure about who you are.” Is a line from the movie Family Man with Nicholas Cage that has always stuck with me.
9. Scariest moment of your life?
Had a scary hitchhiking incident in Greece where the guy turned out to be a total creep. Dont hitchhike kids!
10. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Bali. Ever since watching Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love, have always wanted to frolick and fall in love in Bali!
And that’s Pulse FM’s Vanessa Ybarra! Listen to Vanessa every weekday from 10am – 2pm on 107.7 Pulse FM!
