I'm the Beauty and Fashion Staff Writer at MamásLatinas and a proud Dominicana! I was born and raised in Queens, New York and have hopes of one day moving to Manhattan. Obsessed with all things beauty and fashion, you'll normally find me either trying on a new lipstick, experimenting with DIY beauty remedies or bargain shopping. I graduated from Baruch College with a Journalism major and English Literature Minor in 2009, and have interned at various magazines like SELF, Latina, Popular Science and InStyle.

I know I'm Latina when...

I find myself eating platanos or bananas with every meal!
