HI, MY NAME IS… Adrianna Licitra.
I’VE LIVES IN SCOTTSDALE FOR TWO YEARS AND I LOVE IT BECAUSE… it’s beautiful and there are so many amazing places to eat and fun things to do.
A TYPICAL DAY IN MY LIFE INCLUDES… as a working actress/model, the owner of a professional organizing business (Adrianna’s Organizing and Styling), and a stepmom of three children, the idea of a “typical day” is foreign to me. Each day is totally different and that’s how I like it! I usually try to squeeze in a hot yoga class before heading to whatever set I’m working on that day or whichever client’s home I’m organizing and then spend time with my family.
MY FAMILY IS… blended and beautiful. It’s not always easy being a stepmom but it’s one of the most wonderful experiences that has brought me more love, laughter, joy, and growth than I could have ever imagined.
ONE THING I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT IS… my family. They keep me grounded and bring my life so much happiness and meaning.
MY FAVORITE MOVIE I COULD NEVER GET TIRED OF WATCHING AND WHY IS… “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” It’s the ultimate rom-com and I love Kate Hudson and Mathew McConaughey. They’re my favorite celebrity couple that never was.
WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I WANTED TO BE… an actress. For as long as I can remember acting has been my passion and my dream. Little me would be so excited about all the things I’m working on these days!
THE SONG I WOULD SING AT KARAOKE NIGHT IS… “Mamma Mia!”
THE ONE PERSON WHO MOTIVATES ME IS… my amazing mother! She is the most resilient and compassionate woman I know. She was a single mother of four and still managed to accomplish so much and help so many people in her law career.
THE LAST THING THAT MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD WAS… “Barbie!” It was both hilarious and thought provoking with messages about self-acceptance, feminism, and rejecting impossible beauty standards and societal expectations. Margot Robbie was the perfect choice for Barbie and Ryan Gosling’s performance was “Kenough” to keep me laughing throughout the whole movie.
THE PERFECT DAY IS… spent enjoying time with family or on set working with other talented and creative people to bring a story to life.
MY FAVORITE LOCAL NONPROFIT IS… Arizona Helping Hands, which works to help the nearly 14,000 Arizona children in foster care. I can’t think of a better way to make a difference in the world than to help children who are in such a difficult situation.
MY LIFE IS… constantly pushing me out of my comfort zone both personally and professionally and I welcome the growth that comes with all of life’s inevitable challenges.
THE BEST GIFT I’VE EVER RECEIVED WAS… the promise of forever with my amazing husband, Tyler, and my three beautiful stepchildren.
MY DREAM VACATION WOULD BE… ahh, it’s so difficult to choose just one but right now I’m dying to visit Peru and hike Machu Picchu with my husband!
THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS… “Your opinion of me is none of my business.” For the longest time, I feared judgement from others, and it kept me from pursuing my dreams and being authentically myself. Not anymore!
