I went to an interview today, I was ready, I was confident when I got called for the interview; I still couldn’t believe it but I thought I was ok. This is something I really want to do, it’s a chance I really want, doing something that I have been wanting for a long time. This would give me a chance to be part of the team that puts together three magazines in Puerto Rico. I know I still have more to learn but what better learning experience than this?
But just like any other interview day, I was nervous, very nervous and I kept getting more nervous as other applicants kept arriving for interviews. I only saw four other applicants by the time I left, but who knows if anyone came after I left, how many positions they wanted to fill and all of their credentials.
It also threw me off when the interviewer told me that they weren’t sure if the internship paid but he also said that it could later lead to a job. The interview was short, I hope I answered all the questions correctly or at least what he wanted to hear.
I am really not sure how it went but just being considered is a good sign, it shows that my resume showed them something they liked and decided to give me a chance. Let’s hope I didn’t let them down today.
Wish me good luck!

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.
