"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." - Romans 8:28 (NIV)

I am a very proud Latinx. Peru is the homeland of my family and heritage. Everything I do (professionally) is in honor of my late brother Dustin - who passed away four years ago.
I have a strong education background: receiving two Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees focused in Political Science and Economics from Montclair State University. I also have two minors in Film and Latin American Studies. I consider myself an experienced individual with a demonstrated history of working in the education management industry as well as working in a religious institution.
Currently, I am employed as a Paraprofessional at a High School - working with students on the Autism Spectrum. I will be honest: my students are the reason I enjoy going to work every day. I strive to help them and have their work be shown to the world because they are blessed and very skilled individuals.
Part-time, I volunteer/work for my Parish (Our Lady of the Valley). There, I feel blessed that I can help serve the staff/parishioners as the Parish News Editor, Secretary for Camp Don Bosco in the Valley, a former Instructor for the Advanced course in the ESL program, and as the former Altar Servers Group Leader. I have worked for the Parish over three years and during that time, I have helped develop a Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat profile for events to be shared and viewed by the parishioners. Also, I assisted in creating a website for the Parish: www.olvsalesianchurch.org. All the skills I learned as a Political Science and Economics student has been extremely helpful to incorporate in my everyday routines.
My skills are:
Social Media (Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat)
Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel)
Ever since I can remember, I have been creative, curious and adventurous. Growing up, I found a way to turn these virtues into a thriving career. I have been lucky to work on a variety of projects, meeting the most exceptional individuals along the way. I am also the Founder | Host of My Two Cents - Sense and Change.
My hobbies range from analyzing films, writing blogs/articles about my Parish/employment, baking desserts, reading philosophical/fictional books, and photography. (In my spare time, I am an aspiring photographer).
I have always been creative and curious, thankful to God for every blessing He has provided in my life. I carefully select the projects I take on and work alongside some of the most talented people in my professional circle.
I believe you must be honest and confident with yourself in whatever career of your choosing. In having faith in your skills and your capability to fulfill your dreams, that is very gratifying. That’s why I decided to create this site for all my work, thoughts and ideas. I’ve been blessed to have developed an amazing rapport with my colleagues as well as professionals in the fields of Politics, Economics, Education, and Spirituality.
