THE WOMAN BEHIND THE WORDS

Born and raised in South Florida, I am a first-generation Cuban-American and a student at the University of Central Florida studying Business Communications, with a minor in Mass Culture and Social Behavior.

I published my first book at the age of seventeen entitled "Why We Play With Fire" and sold copies internationally.

Today, my anthology can be found through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other booksellers.

Working with a variety of online and print magazines, I would describe my niche as "social commentary". Unraveling the connection of current events to preconceived cultural beliefs, I hope to bring attention to those that deserve questioning and inspire readers to create meaningful ideological change.

On my days off, you'll find me enveloped in a perception-altering memoir, painting, or traveling the world with friends and family.


And sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll catch me on a late-night drive, seeking an adventure worth writing about.
