To The Girl Who's Not Enough

When someone has the power to break you on the inside, it really sticks with you.

To The Girl Who's Not Enough

An open letter to the girl who's not enough,

Guess what, princess, you are enough. But I'm just as guilty of feeling like I'm not as you are. The last year has really taught me about myself, who I am and who I want to be. And what I've learned is that I am enough even when I feel like I'm not at all.

Here's the thing that no one else understands: that feeling comes from within. Whether it's caused by your family, your friends, a significant other, or whoever; that feeling takes a while to change. When someone has the power to break you on the inside, it really sticks with you. And once you become broken, it becomes so hard to fix.

But being enough isn't about fixing yourself; it's about fixing the way you care about people. It's about not letting someone define you. You're your own person first and foremost, and that alone makes you enough.

So with it being so early into the new year, make this promise to yourself.....say screw everyone that makes you feel like you aren't enough.

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.
