Early Life and Education
Very little is known about Alejandra before her rise to fame online. There are almost no details regarding her family and childhood. It is not known if she intended to pursue a modelling career from a young age, but when she joined the website Instagram, she was not yet interested in finding fame on the platform.
She grew up in the Dominican Republic, and studied at the Santiago University of Technology (UTESA), a private university located in her hometown. It is one of the main research institutes in the country, and is one of the highest ranking universities as well, with a focus on health as well as engineering. She then moved to Organization & Method College (O&M College) in Santo Domingo, founded in 1966, and studied for a degree in psychology. Eventually, after completing her education, she decided to try her hand at finding a career in the United States.
Rise to Fame
After moving to the US, she did a few jobs, leading her to work as a cashier at Pizza Hut in 2016. It was during this time that she started to put more attention towards her online profile, and decided to develop her Instagram account. Instagram is one of the most popular social media networks in recent times and it is owned by Facebook. It is a photo and video sharing service which allows users to upload their own media which can then be shared to the public or to pre-approved followers. Photos can easily be edited through filters and can also be sorted through tags or location information.
The website has grown to become one of the most active in the world with over a billion registered users and over 500 million users daily using the Stories feature of the website. The popularity of the website has withstood criticisms regarding its abrupt change in interface and policies. Ajejandra began to post photos consistently on the website, which helped to increase her popularity. She posted a lot of sexy photos which often showcased her body in various types of outfits. Soon her account would grow to have over 500,000 subscribers.
Sponsorships and Recent Endeavors
Eventually, Alejandra’s online fame would help her gain the attention of several companies, including Fashion Nova, and she started doing sponsored posts for the company, significantly increasing her income. It is a retail company based in Southern California, and started in 2006 with the intention of selling inexpensive club wear. They offer various types of clothing including plus size, men’s clothing, and maternity sizes. It is one of the most searched fashion brands, sharing online fame with the likes of Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton.

She started to appear in fashion shows as well, often working with the company Steve Madden, which markets shoes and fashion accessories; some of the brands under the company include Madden Girl, MADDEN, Freebird by Steven, Big Buddha, Cejon, and Mad Love. After this rise in popularity, her account was banned on Instagram due to her posting borderline lewd content on the website. This was intended to help promote a paid subscription to her, in which subscribers could gain access to more adult oriented videos and photos. With her account being banned, she also lost her sponsors, so then created a new account which continued to promote exclusive access to this type of media; this account has managed to gain over 135,000 followers.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of Mercedes’ romantic relationships, as she has never discussed her dating life nor revealed anyone she is involved with. The lack of any post or appearance connecting her to a relationship leads many to speculate that she is single. Her recent focus on promoting sexy photos and possibly nude content could also be an indication that she is not in a relationship.
Similar to numerous models, she is active on other major social media websites as well. She previously had an account on Twitter, but it was shut down. There is another account that carries her name but it has not posted anything since 2014, only having 84 followers. She also has a personal Facebook page, but has been inactive since 2016, when she decided to focus her efforts more towards her Instagram page. As such, not much is known about her current endeavors, aside from her posts on Instagram which often promotes her wearing intimate clothing. Several sources state that she resides in New York City.
