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 my sisters and me dinner. By putting aside her own dreams, my mother paved the way for me to go after mine. Flash-forward more than twenty years...and I leaped at the chance to relocate from New York City to California.
As Social Reporter for The Desert Sun, I aim to tell stories that resonate with the community of the Coachella Valley. From breaking news to health to politics, my storytelling capabilities expand well beyond my comfort zone.
Through words and visuals, I strive to tell the story of a woman determined to rise.
