Hi there! Welcome to my page, My name’s Karen, I’m 22 years old and I’m a Senior Public Relations major at Kean University. When I graduate with my Bachelor’s, I hope to work in Lifestyle and Travel PR. I started this blog a little over a year ago, with the hope that I can reach people, near and far, and talk about things that almost all of us goes through in our twenties.
I have always loved writing about anything that comes to mind. I’ve kept journals filled with ideas and just about everyday mundane occurrences in my life…
Which is no surprise when I found out about blogging on WordPress! I love drafting new blog posts for all of you. What I normally blog about are primarily lifestyle and travel hacks, followed by some occasional mental health topics and things I stumble upon that are worth talking about.
I’ve had my bout with depression and anxiety, which I talk about on here. Thankfully I can say that I’ve recovered from it and it’s given me so much more clarity in my life.
If there’s one thing about me and my writing style, it’s that I take everything that I have learned and try to spin it into a lesson that I have learned and will relay to all of you. When I blog, I try to use gender-neutral pronouns when I refer to people in my anecdotes and I stay away from all things political and controversial. You will not see me voice my opinions on anything that will most likely have me dragged online. I like to maintain harmony on my site, in a world where there is not. So my one rule for you, as my reader, is to not comment anything that is rude or controversial on any of my posts.
I have gone to not one, not two, but three colleges! My road to education has been a convoluted one, but I have gained so much clarity from each stage in my life and I have come out of these situations learning more about myself. I definitely feel that I can pass on what I have learned, at each stage in my life.
I’m an avid traveler! I’ve traveled to Aruba, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Colombia, and St. Maarten, just to name a few places.
When I’m not blogging, I like to spend time with my family, go out shopping, read a good book, and go on adventures with friends.
I live at home with my mom, dad, aunt and younger brother. For me, family is everything. They are the people who played such a huge role in the person I am today. Just about everything I know about my Colombian culture and life itself, is because of them.
As a creative person, I have such an appreciation for all things art related. Art, films, books and music are one of my favorite topics to talk about. From time to time, I will talk about a song that has multiple meanings or a movie that left me looking at things differently. I’ll also talk about the books that gave me more clarity on things I wasn’t sure of.
All of my posts come from a place of love, acceptance and understanding.

Sending love and light your way,
