As a little girl, I watched my mother rummage through the couches of our Bronx apartment in an attempt to compile enough change to buy us dinner. I knew then that money mattered; I knew then what kind of life I would aim to build.
Flash-forward more than twenty years and I am a multifaceted professional and writer with a seemingly sporadic, albeit passion-infused background in marketing, freelance journalism and, most recently, finance.
When things get hard, I've learned, I'll stumble. Yet, the more hardships I endure, the harder I fight to prevail. If nothing else, the sting of rejection has taught me to adapt.
Through words and visuals, I strive to tell the story of a woman determined to rise.
