And a rewrite reading of my play in October 2015.
Realizing that I can do anything I set my mind to.
This was the first year that I declared that I was a writer. I focused on that goal with every ounce of my being. No more being a JACK of all trades. I decided to MASTER something. With no fear, I’ve decided to take on my life’s purpose.
Black Girl, Latin World will always be my space on the internet. It will always be the way that I connect, communicate and serve you a weekly dose of afrolatinidad through the lens of an African American con la alma Latina.
I hope you will continue walk with me on this journey. Thank you.
