What a great day! Because today is my mother’s birthday, we went to the beach. It wasn’t just any beach, she wanted to come to La Parguera, where we rented a boat and went to a place like this
We thought there wouldn’t be people at the beach since it’s a week day but there were a few other boats out there.
Keeping our distance from other boats, we enjoyed the day in the sun, floating in the water, swimming, walking around and exploring a little bit.
It was sad seeing how much damage, caused by both human and nature, those mangroves have suffered. It didn’t look like the places I visited so much growing up. They are dry and don’t have as many leaves as they used to have.
Regardless of that, it is still one of the most beautiful places and my favorite place in Puerto Rico. I’m glad we got the chance to come here this weekend and give my mom a very happy birthday, one she enjoyed.
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.
