I moved to the Bronx from Puerto Rico in 1972. I raised 4 kids, whom I am deeply proud of, and have 8 wonderful grandchildren. I am 67 now and enjoy making holiday baskets to sell as well as arts and crafts. My dream is to have a little business doing party planning. I like to be me and not being like anyone else. I was brought up that way by my mother, to be different and unique.
I like to photograph candid portraits, my home, and decorations. I have been doing photography for many years because it brings back memories, those beautiful moments you don’t want to forget.
I think COVID-19 has to do with the Lord. It is a call for us, as a people, to get closer and stop prejudice. I have learned that not everybody cares for each other, and people have lost respect for the Lord. During this difficult time, I have been keeping myself busy cooking and enjoying my free time. I have learned what being alone is. This time has taught me that if you have loved ones you should value them; tomorrow is not promised. I am grateful to be here, as the Lord really wants me to be here. I would like the world to know how much I care for everybody, especially my kids.
