In my most recent gig, I taught Spanish and Developmental Writing at Tulsa Community College in Tulsa, OK. I have also worked as an English as a Second Language teacher both at high school and Continuing Education levels, and as a Spanish-English translator. I just moved across the country and I am in the process of looking for a job.

I write here in Wattpad since August 2012. I am concerned with themes of identity and acculturation. My characters are either mentally ill, or live in dysfunctional households. From time to time, fantasy casts a spell on me and I escape into a world of pristine beauty. On occasions, I experiment with poetry.

I am not a published author, although have been writing since I am five years old. This is my first attempt at giving freedom to the stories and poems that I write. I humbly join this group with the hope that you enjoy reading my stories and poems, as much as I enjoy reading all I can on Wattpad.
