I am

Hola mi Gente! As many of you know I’m a storyteller. That’s why from an early age I fell in love with journalism back home, in Venezuela, and decided to go around the globe meeting people and sharing what I learn from them.

My life spins in every direction at different speeds, but I never forget my Latina heritage, everything that my own immigrant story has taught me; and the stories of every person I meet on the road, fulfilling their dreams, conquering their fears, fighting to be better.

If you want to join us on this lifelong adventure, you just have to: #GoLikeMariana
