Hennessy Carolina Almánzar (born December 22, 1995)[1] is an American social media and television personality who is the younger sister of rapper Cardi B.[2] She regularly appeared with her sister on the reality television series Love & Hip Hop: New York and has been noted for her unusual clothing style.[3][4][5][6]

Early life and education[edit]

Carolina was born on December 22, 1995.[4] Carolina attended Renaissance High School for Musical Theater & Technology, a small vocational high school on the Herbert H. Lehman High School campus, just like her sister.[3][7] Carolina's name was given by her father after he showed up to her birth drunk.[4] She gave her sister Belcalis the nickname "Bacardi" which eventually morphed into her professional name, Cardi B.[8]

Career[edit]

Carolina has been noted for her style and plans to create her own fashion line.[3][4][5]

Carolina competed on the third season of The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars, a game show in which competitors participate in athletic challenges to raise money for charity.[9] According to Billboard, "[she] admits she was nervous to return to television after her days on VH1's Love & Hip Hop. Lately, she's been prioritizing her budding fashion design career over TV opportunities."[10] Carolina quit the show after three episodes.[11]

Personal life[edit]

Carolina identifies as bisexual and has stated that she has experienced homophobia in the past. She claimed that she was too afraid to let the world know of her sexual orientation.[12]
