I spent this weekend at the beach with my family. It was a great weekend, the beach was really nice, there were a lot of people, but it was a long weekend and summer vacation began. But there is just one thing that chocked me. While we were leaving the beach, I noticed that there was a lot of trash on the floor next to the street. I don’t know if that was all from this weekend or not, but we went back the next day and it was all still there. Nobody can say that they didn’t see it because I saw police cars drive by. Maybe they we waiting for the weekend to be over to clean up, it was Memorial Day Weekend, so people would be there until Monday. But that is still no excuse for just throwing or leaving your trash on the side of the road. There are enough trashcans at the beach, and you can always take your stuff with you and throw it away later. There is no excuse for this.
I took this video as we went by all the trash. We love going to the beach and have a great time, but if people don’t clean up after themselves, we wont have any beautiful beaches left. People clean up their houses, why don’t they clean up after their home, our home? ¿Que nos pasa Puerto Rico? Ya tenemos demasiados problemas políticos, el dinero, etc. No sigamos añadiendo problemas. #memorialdayweekend #limpiatuplaya
I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
