Immigrant Communities Reporter

I am from the city of Lima (Peru). When I was a teenager I thought of dedicating myself professionally to football but the passion for reading and writing took me in other ways. This is how I came to journalism, a profession that has allowed me to get to know other cultures, countries and people of all kinds. I live in the United States because I always believed that this was the best place to dedicate myself to the press and tell stories with a human sense. I was not wrong. I went through Miami and finally arrived in Tampa, a city that has its own history and a rich Hispanic tradition. The perfect combination for a journalist like me.
