Growing up in the small, but flamboyant island of Puerto Rico, I quickly learned Puerto Ricans love three things: their families, their food, but overall sharing stories. Listening to people tell their journeys of life inspired me to capture them in writing and pictures for others to see. As a journalism student at Boston University, I believe my mission is to listen to the people who surround me and share their magnificent stories with the world. Everyone has a story to tell and through my blog, I plan to shine a light on the hidden stories that have the power to inspire and create change.
