An Open Letter To Middle School Me

It gets better, I promise.

An Open Letter To Middle School Me

I wish you could see how far you came in just a few short years. Everything that is happening to you in that moment, the things that you thought were the end of the world, the things that you never thought you were going to get through, you are going to look back on and laugh in just a few short years. The pain that you are experiencing is temporary. The things that you go through are going to make you so much stronger than you could ever imagine.

As you move forward in your life you are going to experience a lot. High school is going to be a new experience for you. You are going to go through a lot of new things. You will have some really hard days and you are going to lose some people but the pain is going to end. You are going to have some really great friends to get you through the hard times and to laugh with you through the best moments. I just need you to hold on. Pain ends.

You are worth so much more than you think. You let everything that people say to you hurt you. Every little pick at you tears you down. I wish you could see yourself how others see you. So many people are here for you and they love you so much. You are so worthy of love. You are important to people. You are loved and you deserve happiness. It doesn't seem like that right now but that feeling will fade.

Stop being so hard on yourself. You don't give yourself the credit you deserve for the things you do. Even when it feels like the world is crashing down around you and there is no way it will ever get better, you pick yourself up and you get out of bed in the morning. You keep going through some really tough things in your life. You are so strong. You are a warrior.

Don't ever give up on yourself. Things are going to be hard and you are going to be knocked down a lot. That's okay. Just pick yourself up, dust off and keep going. You have so much to be here for. You are going to make it so far. You just need to hold on and see it through. I promise you, you won't regret it. Everything is going to fall into place for you. The hard days are going to end. Better days are ahead.

You have this passion and fire deep in your soul that is just begging to be used. You have such a huge heart and you are going to use that to help a lot of people one day. You set your heart to something and you see it through until the end. You are going to find your place in the world. Don't change yourself for anybody. You will find those people that will love you for who you are. Until you do, just keep doing what makes you happy.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
