This morning, my parents and I drove to one of the many beautiful beaches here in Puerto Rico, and when we got there I was not happy. I was not happy because it was crowded and the only spot we found was close to a group of girls who were being really loud.
As the day went on, it kept getting more crowded, but I stopped noticing the other people. I got so used to all the talking and all the noise, I stopped hearing those girls, their voices just turned into background noise and it didn’t bother me anymore. I ended up having a great time, swimming and playing dominos. FYI: I won like four games!
After we left, I kept thinking back to the beginning of the day and my bratty attitude when I got to the beach. Why did it bother me so much? I was supposed to have fun and enjoy my day, and I did, but I shouldn’t have started it that way, with an attitude. I shouldn’t have been bothered by them having a good time, especially not on such a beautiful day at the beach. I mean, look at this:
How can you be in a bad mood there?

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.

No dejar que un ratito nos dañe el día, muy cierto. ❤️
