There are many memories and stories behind the objects that are in my home. Some may have a longer story than others, but they all have something that makes them special to me.

I enjoy hearing music whenever I have to do something. It helps me focus on what I’m doing. It also helps me to concentrate and be relaxed. I have a lot on my plate. Music is not only to get me through my tasks it’s also a big part of my culture. There are different kinds of music in my culture like pop, reggaeton, and so much more.

There are many things in my home that make you say “aw,” because it’s a big part of me. I enjoy having cute things with little characters. I am a huge fan of adorable things that make you smile. I love Disney movies, and whenever there is something that is from a Disney movie, I‘d have it.

Something that is very important to me is family. My family will always be there for me and support me through anything, and so would I for them. My family makes me smile and laugh, and they are always there to cheer me up when I’m feeling down. They always help me out and support me no matter what. My family is a huge part of my life.

Creativity and art is what makes me, me. I enjoy painting or drawing anything. Whenever I feel stressed out, the thing I do to relieve my stress is draw or paint something. I have taken some classes on how to paint and draw, and I think my art is improving a lot. If I didn’t have my art, then I might not be me. I am very big fan of art and creativity, and the canvas is an example of that.

I love art, but I’m also a big fan of photography. I love taking photos, being in photos and designing the way the picture is taken. I have created a photo wall in my room where I have collected the most important images to me and placed them on the wall so that I can see them all the time when I’m in my room.

I love food, but specifically Hispanic food. I love all kinds of food, and trying new ones. My favorite food, however, are empanadas which my mom makes at home. I can never get enough of them. I am a food-lover and I don’t think I could live without my Hispanic food.

There is a tradition in my family that we always got to the Red Sox games in the summer. However, due to the pandemic, we haven’t been able to go. But when it’s over, I’m sure that we’ll go. I can’t wait to go because it’s always so much fun. We always make new memories every year that we go.
