Get To Know Me: 12 Facts

by - May 22, 2017

I just want to start this off by saying that I turn 22 in a week. TWENTY-TWO. I cannot believe it, but I will be spending the entire day blasting 22 by Taylor Swift. What other plans do I have for my birthday? Absolutely nothing. If you have any suggestions, help a girl out!

There are many of you that I don't know personally. Many of you only see me through this blog, my social media, and YouTube, so I wanted to share 12 facts about me.

1. I am a sister of Alpha Omicron Pi and being in a sorority has changed my life for the better.



2. I am a first-generation college student. My mom got pregnant with me when she was 17 and did not finish high school. My dad immigrated here from Mexico, but grew up there and was extremely poor and actually had to quit school to work to earn money for his family.
3. Aside from being in a sorority, I serve as the senior editor for the Georgia State chapter of Her Campus and am a member of the following organizations: Order of Omega Honor Society, Society of Professional Journalists, Atlanta Press Club, and National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
4. I interned with The Bert Show last summer and am currently an intern with The Adam Bomb Show. You can hear air checks on Soundcloud!



5. Aside from blogging and YouTube, my dream job is working in radio! I would LOVE to be part of a morning show.
6. I am SUPER picky about ranch dressing. Homemade ranch is my favorite.
7. My celeb crush is Nick Jonas. I have loved him since the very beginning of the Jonas Brothers.
8. My boyfriend, David, and I have been dating for over 5 years. We're high school sweet hearts!



9. I've lived in Georgia all my life, but all of my family is from California (mom's side) or Mexico (dad's side). My parents were the first to move here and the majority of my family has moved to Georgia since!
10. I'm bilingual. I can fluently speak English and Spanish and now that I think of it, I can speak a little Portuguese! I've taken two semester of it in college.
11. I have always struggled with my weight, but 2017 is the year that I get healthy.
12. I love to travel and there are so many places I want to go! Need a travel buddy? I'm your girl!
