My Neighborhood

I currently live in Yonkers, which is part of Westchester County. I was born and raised in the Bronx and lived there the majority of my lifetime until recently. When people ask me where I'm from, I answer with the birthplace of my parents, the Dominican Republic. Only if someone specifically asks me where I live, do I tell them Yonkers.

My Education

I went to elementary and middle school in the Bronx, and attended Fiorello H Laguardia HS in Manhattan. I speak Spanish fluently.

Special Interests in New York

I enjoy visiting and exploring cultural neighborhoods all throughout NYC. I love seeing Broadway shows and visiting museums. Places I enjoy visiting include fifth avenue and 34th st for shopping, Union square, Lower East Side, Little Italy and of course Times Square, which is a bit overrated but still given. I also spend a lot of time in Washington Heights, the infamous all Dominican neighborhood that boasts of having the best hair salons ever. And I concur that they really are the best.
