I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, a port city, strategically placed next to the delta Magdalena river, one of the most important rivers in Colombia flowing northward through 950 miles in the middle of the country. Barranquilla is the capital city district of the department of Atlantico. It is known for several landmarks like the Queen Mary Cathedral, its magnificent architecture inspiring divinity within the city. Yet, when most people hear about Barranquilla, they might think of Shakira, or maybe Sofia Vergara, but I know for sure most think about the Carnival of Barranquilla, which is a four-day long festivity celebrating the culture of the Caribbean Colombians. Like many others around the world, I was fascinated with languages, history, and the study of culture. I first moved to the United States right before my fifteenth birthday. I graduated from a high school in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Then I earned my Bachelor's degree at Southern Illinois University, where I majored in Political science and minored in History and Sociology. As such, most of the posts I will be making will be related to these topics focusing mainly on America's both North and South, talking about news, events, and other major topics happening in our regional sphere. Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me.
I am an immigrant with aspirations to become an American lawyer. This website is an informative writing portfolio on sociology, immigration services, law, and crime.
