About Me

I was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the United States at the age of 5. My father speaks only Spanish.  I went to a public school for elementary school, then a charter school, and now a private school. I love to write and act, and as such, I have a curiosity for experiencing anything and everything. I have found that in whatever position I am in, I tend to be flexible and thus able to succeed.
