My self-summary
I am a too loud, often quiet, introspective extrovert. A mix of oxymorons pursuing a BA in Economics and International Relations. If it helps at all, I'm also a Sagittarius. I am equal parts Black-American and Puerto essentially, I'm a Dominican.
What I’m doing with my life
Well if this isn't redundant I don't know what is...
Currently entering my final year in undergrad. After that, if I'm not traveling, working or Teach for America-ing, I'll be getting my MA on the west coast. Luckily, I'm still in the twilight zone of collegiate optimism, so serving at an NGO for some time still appeals to me. To be seen...
I’m really good at
Reading people and putting them at ease, quoting How I Met Your Mother, baking chocolate chip cookies (specifically), and telling corny jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: Scratch mac & cheese, steak, ensalada de bacalao/bacalao guisado, pastelitos, NYC pizza (never appreciated it so much until I left for college)
Lit: Slaughterhouse V, and Vonnegut in general (love dystopian fiction), Memoirs of a Geisha, The Alchemist
Music: some alt. rock, West Indian music, bachata and salsa, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, Wale, Lupe
Movies: Saving Private Ryan, Frequency, Slumdog Millionaire, The Other Guys
TV: GOT, HIMYM!, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Scandal, Friends, some anime
The six things I could never do without
Or at least 6 I'd prefer not to do without:
-Lip balm
-Comfortable clothing
-Some type of water bottle
-Project Free TV, since I don't watch legitimate television
-My phone+Headphones
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Inequality, capitalism, my future, the future in general, would-have-been-witty comebacks, the nature of privilege, strangers' life stories, and of course, weekend plans.

Recently, I've been getting into coding, so there's some free time that goes into that as well. Respect to all the STEM majors/ computer heads out there!
On a typical Friday night I am
Somewhere laughing with my friends.
