Spontaneity is not something I’ve always been good at

Every time I go to a new place in Puerto Rico, I fall a little bit more in love. This tiny island has it all – a lush rainforest, the most beautiful beaches, unique wildlife, vibrant cities. There’s still so much I want to see before I leave. I’m slowly learning to take life day by day – I’m on island time now, where everything is mañana, as I’ve heard a lot since I’ve been here. So I’m hoping the next trip I take is just as spontaneous and wonderful as this one was. And even when I leave Puerto Rico, I think I’ll be spending less time planning and more time living.

I am no longer asking myself what I should do that will make my parents proud, but what I want to do that will make ME happy

Embracing this crazy but wonderful journey and not obsessing over the future. What success looks like to me now is much healthier, much clearer, and a whole lot of who I am and who I aim to be. It could still change though, for as long as I’m growing as a person.

Whether I get into graphic design and create amazing images, or build websites and programs for others who just can’t figure out how to get their vision across; I want to be the one who brings out those intended or desired emotions from viewers. That’s what motivates me, and that’s why I’m here.

I want to believe in every one of my students that step foot in my classroom

I want them to feel like they can achieve something great – something far beyond the classroom walls. I hope to encourage and challenge them to continue to seek the things that best illuminate their eyes with curiosity and wonder. I long to help peel back a clouded lens, offering clarity of vision that allows them to see their potential and worth.
