Merry Christmas! Even though I’m two days late in my Christmas post, I think you know by now that I’ll be celebrating until January, that is the tradition in Puerto Rico. But it’s been a busy Christmas this year, since the holidays this year are right in the middle of the work week.
But it’s been wonderful spending time with family and laughing so much with them. I had so much fun on Christmas Eve at my grandparents house, joking around with my grandma. She really is something special and I’m glad I can enjoy these and many other moments like this with her.
Because after the stress of decorating and getting presents are over, the greatest memories we have are singing and laughing with the family. This is what I look for at Christmas parties, no politics, no discussion, no stress, just enjoying the company and having fun.
And the fun is not over yet, we still have a couple of holidays coming in the next two weeks and there is more family coming. Can’t wait to see them and to enjoy the rest of the holidays.
I hope you are all enjoying the holidays too!

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.
