This was waiting for me when I got to work this morning at my new second job! Yes, I have two jobs now!
My new job is with the nonprofit organization Mujer Emprende, that provides tools and education for women to gain economic independence, gain professional growth and boost their businesses. They’re not only giving me a chance to work but I’m also getting a chance to help other women succeed and grow their businesses. I’m very motivated to work with this organization and excited to do anything I can to help and make a difference.
My first day was great, starting with that awesome welcome and ending with being able to walk to my other job after because they are both on the same floor. I’m very excited and ready to keep learning and working hard tomorrow.
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.
