I'm a Staff Writer at MamásLatinas. I am a native New Yorker who graduated from NYU as a Journalism and English major in 2011. Throughout my undergrad career, I contributed regularly to NYU's paper, Washington Square News, and held internships at the Long Island Press, amNewYork, The New York Times Local: East Village, and Seventeen Magazine. A self-professed literature nerd and news junkie, I love to relax by reading magazines, newspapers, and books while sipping iced caramel macchiatos. I am addicted to shoes, coffee, yoga and all things John Hughes.I know I'm Latina when...
I could literally eat beans with or for every meal, with no problem whatsoever.
