Graduation

Life is a series of chapters, each offering the opportunity for growth, reinvention, and new adventures. As a professional dancer and agency owner, I spent years immersed in the world of music, performing alongside renowned artists such as JLo, Pitbull, Chris Brown and many latin artist. It was an exhilarating journey that shaped me in many ways. However, as the curtain fell on one chapter of my life, a new desire ignited within me—a passion for journalism. Join me as I share my transformative journey from the spotlight to the newsroom, where I seek to uncover stories and shed light on the world around us.

After years of captivating audiences with my dance moves, I felt a yearning for something more. I longed to use my voice to make a difference, to delve into the depths of storytelling, and to uncover the hidden narratives that shape our society. The prospect of embarking on a career in journalism ignited a fire within me, and I eagerly embraced this new path with open arms. It was a leap of faith, driven by a deep desire to inform, inspire, and spark meaningful conversations.


My journey as a dancer was filled with breathtaking moments and unforgettable experiences. I had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of the industry's biggest names, dancing to the beats of Latin artists who moved millions with their music. The energy, the passion, and the sheer joy of performing alongside these legends will forever be etched in my memory. It was an honor to be part of their creative vision, and their artistry fueled my own artistic growth.

As I transitioned from the world of dance to journalism, I discovered the profound impact that storytelling can have on our lives. I realized that beyond the glitz and glamour of the stage, there were stories waiting to be told—stories that had the power to uplift, educate, and inspire. Journalism became my medium for amplifying voices, shedding light on social issues, and bringing about positive change. It was a calling that compelled me to explore the depths of human experiences and share them with the world.


Embracing journalism meant embarking on a new journey of learning, growth, and adaptation. I immersed myself in the world of news, honing my writing skills, and embracing the principles of journalistic integrity. I sought opportunities to interview thought leaders, report on important events, and dive into investigative reporting. Each step brought me closer to my goal of becoming a catalyst for change through the power of words.



As I reflect on my transition from the world of professional dance and agency ownership to the realm of journalism, I am filled with a sense of excitement and purpose. My experiences as a dancer have shaped my resilience, discipline, and determination, while my encounters with renowned artists have taught me the value of collaboration and the transformative power of art. Now, armed with a new set of skills and a burning passion for storytelling, I am ready to embark on this new chapter as a journalist. It is a journey of discovery, where I aim to uncover truths, amplify marginalized voices, and ignite conversations that inspire positive change. From the spotlight to the newsroom, I am excited to make my mark and contribute to the ever-evolving landscape of journalism.
