After playing for 120 minutes and tying the game 3-3 with France, Argentina won the World Cup with 4-2 penalty kicks. This was going to be the third World Cup victory for either team and it is Argentina’s first World Cup victory since 1986 in Brazil.
I have to admit, I was rooting for France. I liked the team and the players and at the end of the game, they almost won two World Cups in a row; but I have to admit Argentina played a really good game today and Messi and the rest of his team deserve this victory. I also really like the fact that the champions are latin and the are from the American continent. The last champion from this side of the world was Brazil twenty years ago when they won the 2002 World Cup, hosted by Japan and South Korea.
Tomorrow I will have to face everyone at work who knew I was rooting for France. I hope they go easy on me, but I will miss the excitement of updating the scores on the poster in the cafeteria. At least now we get to continue celebrating the holiday season and there is only one week left before Christmas!

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.
