Today I voted because I’m a bisexual Latina immigrant and it’s important

Today is Election Day!

If you don’t know or understand the importance of the 2016 election, then it’s very possible that you have been lying under a rock for the past year and a half. And that’s totally NOT okay. So this is my very last and final plea with you: GO OUT AND VOTE!

And yes, I am totally biased about who you should vote for. But, you know, I kind of have to be… One candidate is the most qualified person for the office of the presidency of the United States of America and the other person is an orange popsicle filled with hate. As someone who self-identifies as a bisexual Latina immigrant (what else would you call me anyway?), there is only ONE message that I care about and that is a message of hope, tolerance and understanding.

And, hey, look! I even wrote about it. Check out I’m a Bisexual Latina Immigrant. I Can’t Wait to Vote on Dose.com now!

The truth behind why Millennials don’t care about owning cars or houses

Earlier this year I wrote about Millennial wedding trends and a couple months ago I wrote about how asking a millennial to carry cash is absolutely terrible. Today I’m back writing about Millennials once more! This time it’s about why we Millennials don’t really want to buy cars and houses quite as much as generations of the past.

For me, it mainly comes down to memories being more important than material possessions… But there’s a lot more to it too. Plus, BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: This is also my very first story published for my new contributor gig at Dose.com and OMGFacts.com. YAY!

My new job at Brit+Co!

I have BIG news!

As of today, I have joined Brit+Co as their new freelance lifestyle community editor.

My new job is pretty great, to be honest. The company is based in San Francisco, but I will continue to work from my home in New York City. Mostly, I am thrilled to join the lifestyle team at a company that is committed to inspiring women and girls to be more creative. As the lifestyle editor, I will be overseeing food (duh!), pets and weddings content.

I’m really excited to get started, and I can’t wait to see what the end of 2015 brings and – even better – all of my adventures in 2016.

P.S. If you’re a publicist friend looking to reconnect or pitch me in any of these areas, you can email me here.
