I am a Storyteller here to share stories through short stories, poems, personal essays, digital creations or any other medium that best tells the story.

Some kids know exactly what they want to be when they grow up. I was not that kid. Even at the age of 20, I still didn’t know what I wanted to be. The one thing I liked to do was write, but I never thought I was good enough to be a writer, so I never really pursued it. However, recently, I was going through my old writings and it dawned on me. This is what I want to do: tell stories.
As I write this, I am 38 years old. The insecurities that plagued me before have mostly dissolved. I have made peace with the fact that I will not write the next War and Peace or Dante’s Inferno. However, I have a unique voice and have come to embrace it, which is why I started this blog: to share my stories with you.
The blog will consist of my writings from the past with some tweaks, as well as new ones. It will vary from short stories to poems, to personal essays and more. Though the personal essays are based on my personal life, I’ll take some creative liberties in order to move the story along or make certain points stronger.
The first blog I’ll share with you is called Tuesdays. I thought this personal essay would be apropos, especially since it clearly shows my struggle with embracing my writing capabilities and why it took me so long to share it. And if you like my stories, please follow my
On my Instagram, I tell stories through other mediums.
Thank you for joining me on my journey and I hope it inspires you to do something that scares and excites you as well.
