I’m very proud to say that my grandfather’s first book was published today! This book narrates the history of chemical impacts Puesto Rico has suffered throughout the it’s history, has been decades in the making.
From oil spills, and discharges, to shipwrecks, and leaks, he narrates everything that has taken place in Puerto Rican waters, both what he saw in his long career as a chemical engineer and beforehand, and the impact all of these events had in the history of our island. These stories not only explain many of the things we see today but is also a tool to help us in dealing with similar disasters in the future.
I have heard bits and pieces of these stories throughout my life but I can’t wait to pick up the book and get the full story, from beginning to end and understand how it all changed the island. This is history of Puerto Rico, seen through my grandfather’s eyes and impacted by him too.
This book is in Spanish. It you are interested it is available for sale on paperback and ebook on Amazon at Breve historia de naufragios y derrames en Puerto Rico.

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.
