Today Puerto Rico was glued to the TV watching as Monica Puig won her semifinal Tenis match against Petra Kvitova. Tomorrow we will all be watching as she plays against Angelique Kerber. We are all hoping she wins and have faith in her that she can do it.
Today people were watching everywhere, at work, school, restaurants, home. I even heard someone scream from another apartment near mine.
When we ate dinner the waiters were still talking about the match while watching other Puerto Ricans compete. We are a small island but we have a lot of pride in our island. This is our first olympic medal in tennis and we are all looking forward to this, win or loose today, she made it to finals. Puerto Rico is getting it’s first olympic medal in tennis.
Monica is showing the world what Puerto Ricans are made of. She’s going for it soon, and we’re all watching and rooting for her.
Vamos Monica! Puerto Rico está contigo!

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.
