Today I got the great news that we finally got power back in our apartment in Puerto Rico. Yeah, two long months after hurricane María, my parents can finally go back to sleeping, cooking and eating at home.
I got the news this morning from my mom and I was so happy that they can finally get back to normal. It has been over two months after the hurricane and many people’s lives are still not back to normal or even close to normal. We don’t know if the power is back for good but I’m hoping it is because these have been two difficult months for my parents and all our neighbors.
It’s ridiculous how many people still don’t have anything, how many places are still not even close to being back to normal. Puerto Rico Electrical Power Authority says that the Palo Seco Central, which provides energy from fuel oil won’t produce energy until the end of January. The governor had already made false claims that it would start working earlier this month.
Things are still not looking good for most of Puerto Rico but I’m hoping for the best, thankful for all of those who still have Puerto Rico on their minds.

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.
