HEY, WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
My name is Valeria Guzman, and I am currently a 19-year-old undergrad college student. I was born in Venezuela and immigrated to the United States when I was only eleven years old. Now, I live in Miami, FL and attend Florida International University as a communication arts major while also pursuing a musical theater career outside of college during my free time. I have many MANY (way too many) dreams that I wish to someday accomplish; ultimately, my goal is to become a professional journalist and actress, and one day (I dream about this day A LOT) move to New York City and pursue that dream. That’s the plan. However, that is easier said than done; it requires a lot of dedication, effort, and most importantly, A THICK SKIN, which brings me to my next point:
The reason why I started this blog
Writing has always been an escape for me. Yes, I am one of those people and I am not ashamed of it. Writing makes me happy. It has always been my favorite way to communicate with people which is why the idea of blogging has always called my attention. As a young aspiring actress, I’ve had to take in A LOT of criticism and experience more rejection than I ever imagined I could (and I still have a long way to go). SO, If writing makes me feel better, why not give it a try?
Additionally, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE reading lifestyle, fashion, inspirational and organizational blogs (and a few YouTube videos here and there) which is what I intend to do in this blog as well. They’ve inspired me to – excuse my language – “get my sh*t together.” As a college student, I have to juggle so many things at once and I want to have an open creative space where I can share my ideas with a community. I want shamelessly be myself in hopes to help others in similar situations. It feels a little bit scary yet exciting at the same time. I feel vulnerable, but vulnerability is good.
AND… I also think it can open new doors for me as an aspiring journalist. So, what do I have to lose?
Get to know my face:
As far as the content I’ll be posting: nothing is set in stone yet. I am going to try some theater-related stuff, lifestyle blogs, how-to’s, time management and studying tips, and some occasional fashion posts!
LASTLY, if you have made it this far, I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH. Just a simple read means A LOT. I hope to have your support in building this community!
