Astrid received her primary and secondary education in San Juan. She was the first of three siblings born to her parents. Her father was a nuclear engineer and her mother a housewife. They both were very strict in their upbringing of Astrid. She enjoyed going to the beach and reading fashion magazines as a young girl. In 1988, when Astrid was 14 years old, she was offered an opportunity to model in Spain but, her mother objected.
In 1993, when she was 19 years old, Astrid went to Miami to visit a friend. While she was over there, she met a modeling agent who suggested that she model in France. Astrid left for France without consulting her parents. In Paris, she became one of the first latinas to break through as a model.
After working in Europe for several years, Astrid relocated to New York, where she continues to appear on the covers of the most renowned fashion magazines and to work in many high fashion campaigns.
The Agencies for which Astrid works for are: New York-Next; Paris-Marilyn Milon, Riccardo Gay; London-Strom.
