I grew up in a Hispanic household, which I believe had the most impact on my current values and ethics. Honesty, respect, and as my mother used to say, “doing the right thing” have been resonating in my mind since the beginning of my conscious self. However, when my family and I moved to the United States, my values and ethics had a minor switch, as these are quite different here in the States. Teenagers leave their homes at the young age of eighteen to go to college, or even if they don’t go to college, most American kids are taught that independence and freedom come with leaving the family nucleus.
Don’t get me wrong, I take my cup of coffee every morning before work, however, coffee (like everything in the world) should not be abused, and so my journey with cold-pressed juices and organic juice blends begins.
For the past few months, I have been immersing myself in trying to figure out my life; where I want to go, how I will get there, and most importantly, who I want to become. When people get too overwhelmed with their routines, they stop doing what they love and need the most, which for me is writing.
