Here we go again, another hurricane, this one goes by the beautiful name of María, pretty name, I know. This storm, however, doesn’t look like it will be pretty; it’s already a category 5 hurricane and it will go over the entire island. Because of María’s intensity and traveling direction, through Puerto Rico, the government and news sources are putting us all in high alert. They are doing exactly what they need to be doing to keep us safe.
Just like before Irma, shelters are being prepared for anyone who needs it, people are stocking up on non-perishable foods, water, ice, flashlights, batteries, in order to prepare for what’s coming in the next few days. Also, just like last time, we will be leaving our home and going to hide in a house. This time our host will be my brother who has, very nicely, offered us the safety of his house. When we heard the warnings for people living in apartments and above the fourth floor, we quickly jumped on his offer.
Everywhere I look people are preparing for Maria, just like they did for Irma, and making sure they, their homes and families are safe. We hear the warnings, we have seen this before and we will be ready for you María.
Also, if that María could be stopped, or at least toned down a bit, it really wouldn’t be a bad thing.

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.
