My Strengths

  • ambition, dedication, curiosity, and my hustle.

  • I also got accepted into the first cohort for the UX Design apprenticeship at Google.  I was able to successfully adapt into the work culture at Google while learning both about Finance and UX at the same time.

My Hobbies

Bachata Dancing

On my free time, I love to dance Bachata. Bachata is a social dance that originated from the Dominican Republic; my parents are from the Dominican Republic and I grew up in Washington Heights so I grew up dancing bachata. I am a proud Dominican American and dancing bachata is my creative outlet and a way to connect to my cultural roots.
