I originally set out to interview Reyna to show people that this young woman wasn’t The Unicorn. I set out to showcase that she was more normal than some of her extracurricular activities paint her to be. I additionally wanted to know what made her tick and give her a chance to tell the world how she really feels about her increasing fame–or infamy, depending on how you view her actions. And while the road to this point has been hectic–you can read why elsewhere–the months that I’ve been in contact with Reyna have shown me that, well, there’s more to every story–even the stories that are presented for the world to divulge. As clichéd as it may sound, the cover only tells some of the story of Reyna.
The video below is the re-upload of our original November 2015 interview, back by request.
This strategy, over the past few years, has worked and worked wonders. Has it brought a ton of, at times, unwanted attention her way? Yes. Unfortunately, shitty people come with the territory. But, she’s managed to work through many of the crapstorms thrown her way. It’s for that reason that I, back in 2013, originally shouted her out and commended her for how she was going about this whole thing. Instead of taking the “hoe” label and/or retreating, she’s attempted to turn the world and that word on its ear.
Outside of her obvious assets, the college student finds herself enjoying so-called “nerdy” things, such as anime, manga, and, in some ways, trolling followers for reactions. One of my personal favorites involved ramping up the “me girl, me dumb about sportsball” trope and then busting out some obscure knowledge many of her male followers read, slack-jawed. In high school, Reyna, per our phone interview, indicated she was the type that’d walk around with Naruto headbands and the like on. And it’s through that embracing, to a degree, of anime nerdishness, mixed in with her knowledge, bluntness, and irreverent humor, that’s won her fans and attention throughout social media.
However, the young woman will not fully showcase herself to the world. And, when you really think about it…why should she? You’ve got to keep something to yourself in this world, even when you give a lot. But, it’s my hope that, through this piece and its accompanying phone interview, you’ll get to hear, from Reyna’s mouth, what’s the real behind some of what makes Reyna, Reyna. All I’ve gotta say is “you can’t trust everything the bigger sites are saying.”
