RuPaul's Drag Race Season 5
Serena ChaCha was born on September 17,1990 in the Republic of Panama, the land of “Butterflies, Trees, and Fish.” Growing up in Panama, Serena always had a deep-rooted passion for the arts propelling her to the top of her class. At the young age of nineteen, she undertook the challenge that drag presented while also pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Florida State University. In 2012, she graduated from Florida State University while also graduating to a new level of drag by acquiring a coveted position in the fifth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Serena describes her experience in the competition as a culmination of her past exposure to diverse artistic and cultural muses, ultimately personified into a singular movement: DRAG! Her determination to evolve motivates her to keep immersing herself in all aspects of drag, be it the artistry of makeup, fashion as a form of sculpture or theatrics through performance. It is at MAC Cosmetics that Serena was able to hone her competitive makeup skills and grow under their direction for nearly five years. Refusing to settle, her skills grew and flourished into other ventures and soon expanded her brand. Serena owns and created a hand-crafted wigline, ChaCharina Hair, where armed with her gifts from God, she can continue to make people beautiful. From working at the makeup counter helping women look their best to transforming Queens into their fiercest selves, Serena is a goddess among men.
