We from dragqueens of the world met Hannah  and he/she told us about her life.

Puerto Rico drag queenHello! My name is Jaime Van Gar aka Hannah Yahabi. I’m 21 years old and I live in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I am a Hairdresser during the day. Hannah was born in October 31st, 2010 experimenting with some friends. I started doing my own make-up but it didn’t look good. My first time was horrible, but I was so happy because I thought I looked fierce. My boyfriend said that I need to practice a little more and how to blend it because it all was about shades, shades everywhere! I did practice and everyday forward was better and better. My boyfriend love it because he says Jaime and Hannah doesn’t look exactly the same.

Puerto Rico drag queenI love when I transform myself, only I can see any single details of my transformation. For me there’s no face without eyebrows. Eyebrows for me is everything. When I do transform I need to listen some music to feel in the mood as an artist, as a D’Queen of the World. My biggest inspiration is RuPaul. When I started doing D’Queen it as because of her, I would love to meet her. I used to copy every step, word and movement she does but I stopped because I realize that I need to find my own persona and have my own personality. My diva is Mariah Carey, when I perform some soft music Miss Carey’s spirit embody in me. I never had a D’Mother, I’m inspire myself too for everything I’ve been doing on my own.

Puerto Rico drag queenI don’t want to look selfish but I’m proud of myself. I had pass for a lot of struggles on my life and I keep my head high to demonstrate that I can do anything that I propose I’m proud of my boyfriend who support me in every way that I go. He is the one who buy my hair and the only one who tell if I look sickening or trashy. I would love to make my dream come true and been on RuPaul’s D’Race, just to be there and show the world my talent to be an artist. I know that I’m young but I can bring it in every single way. My pet peeves is being perfect. I need to look PERFECT every time If anyone can’t be perfect, why the word perfect exist? Good question, huh? That’s my biggest challenge and I want to be a professional in this career.

I want to be a Super D’Model, doing runways and photo-shoots. You can see more of me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+ and YouTube by HannahYahabi or for booking info you can contact me: Hannah.Yahabi@gmail.com
