From a Latinita with a big dream to making it a reality

Posted on July 10, 2014 at 9:04am 1 Comment

Two years ago, I made the decision to accept an internship in Boston for the summer (All in previous blog posts). That decision changed my life for the better. After graduating from UTEP I moved to Boston to work for the non-profit that had given me the internship the year before. I am not going to lie to any of you and say it was easy. I cried so much the week before leaving that I was emotionally exhausted by the time I got on the plane to make the eight-hour flight to what I would call my…

I have always put so much pressure on myself to be this specific kind of individual that had to fit in and adapt to the way of life in El Paso.

My Journey to Boston (first WEEK of work)

I am exhausted. I never thought I'd be working eight hours a day at this internship. Oddly enough I love it. I am in love with what we do. I am intrigued by everything that is going on and the fast pace is just exhilarating.

First things first though. Lets start with last week and how it went. The last time I updated my blog was Tuesday and that night my brother, his wife and myself went to this place called Quincy Market in Boston. This place is Heaven for food lovers. It's…
