"Where there is a will, there is a way."

I used to think "que no era de aquí ni de allá".

I was always switching between two worlds: my Mexicanness & my Blackness, my university and my neighborhood, southern hospitality and the northeastern bustle. Both opposite and never together. 

Then I thought, "¿Porque no los dos?".

 

ABOUT ME

"ONLY WHEN WE JOIN HANDS AND LOOK TO THE STARS WILL HUMANITY REALIZE ALL WE HAVE ARE EACH OTHER."

I have a strong devotion to bringing together everyone on this planet. Only seeing the Earth as our frame of reference keeps us from justly appreciating our existence in the universe. Outer space is vast with discovery and our progress towards it would be faster if we put our minds and hearts together. Coming together as one is the first step to maximizing our force as a human species. There may be a lot of time in between that reality and now, but I try to do my by practicing these values in all that I do: cosmopolitanism, egalitarianism, authenticity, and love.
