Miami

If I thought it was difficult moving from Argentina to England, well… I was wrong! That was easy.

Moving from England to USA well that was really hard, I was very excited of coming to Miami but once I arrived I said to myself…I will never move from our small flat again!

Let me going in to details: organizing job contract and insurance, place where to stay when we arrive, real state for our flat and new tenants, flats and visa, and ship our stuff to USA wasn’t easy at all. All that when you are 30 + weeks pregnant… so that included a new doctor in US!

But once I move to Miami I felt a lot more happy,  weather  was incredible and I could speak English and Spanish anytime.

So four weeks after we move to USA my other love, Sienna arrived to our lives. I can’t describe all the emotions that I went threw with her arriving. We, the two of us, Luke and I, him with a new job and both with a newborn . Let me tell you… we weren’t bored at all!

After a couples of months to settle down in a new city, we visited London and Argentina, so Sienna could see their grandparents. On my way back I started thinking in getting a new job or start studying.

One day I was around Brickell for a stroll with my baby and suddenly I saw the Media School Ad, I didn’t think it too much. I went in and  I asked for information and I thought this will be a great opportunity for me to start my Media career.

So I did this…. Now I finished my studies, I learnt so much! and I met great people. In spite of the difficulties, for me was the best decision that I could make. I am grateful because I had this opportunity of learning  from experienced instructors and I practice what I was learning. Something that would never happened neither in Argentina nor London.

I am very happy and proud, for me it is a big achievement, and I am absolutely sure that with sacrifice and hard work we can achieve our purposes.

Now Miami is my new home and my next step is to work in the Media world!

Argentina

Stage 1. My home city : Tucumán

Before we start my journey, I will tell you a bit of myself.

I was born in a small city in the North Argentina, Tucumán.

I am the eldest of two children. I had a beautiful childhood but my family always had a lot of economical problems in a city where there wasn’t many opportunities for young people.

In spite of my mom and dad (and my maternal grandparents) did a enormous sacrifice and sent me to a private school. I am very grateful that.

I always loved the media, I remember reading the newspaper and going to sleep listening the radio at very young age. Also at every school event I always wanted to participate, acting or reading, now that I remembering this was funny, because I wasn’t (and I am still not ) the most extrovert person in the world. I think my teachers tought the same so I wasn’t very lucky and for the annual school event I always had mostly a Saint Jose part, baby Jesus Father (I went to a catholic school) because I was the tallest of my class.

Anyway even when I wasn’t encourage for my school at my media passion I always wanted to work on TV, but when I had to choose a carrer at the university I decided to choose Law. I think because for different reasons, I was confused , I was quite good at history and social science, my family was doing a big investment on me so I had to choose the safest career and always I liked to fight the injustices, plus my tiny city has two channels and a lot of people already working there that means there wasn’t vacancies.

So I did start studying Law convinced that I was doing my best and after getting my professional degree I would have a safe job and stay for ever in my tiny city. I think that decision also was affected for the inesperated death of my father too. I think for around a year my head was not in this planet was somewhere else.

Anyway, my plan didn’t work…

After three years studying law I started feeling bored and I was stucked in one of the university program subjects, so I decided to move to the Capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires.

Stage 2. A (gap ?) year in Buenos Aires.

I convinced my mom that I would move to Buenos Aires just for 6 months, and I would come back to carrying on studying for my Law degree. I went to the biggest city in Argentina with no money at all , but my plan (of course I had another brilliant plan) was succeed in my modeling career.

Well, of course that didn’t happened… But at least I had some modeling and promotional jobs to pay my rent and my food. Even when I met good friends I couldn’t go out too much because I was living basically broke. Buenos Aires was way too much more expensive that I thought! Anyway I had these really nice friends from England (they were “studying Spanish” and “working” ( it was their gap year, they didn’t how lucky they were…) and they invite me to their parties… so in one of this parties I met to the love of my life, Luke.  A very shy guy from Hereford and that was for me, love at first sight.

I was seeing him a couple of times, and I was so happy that finally someone who I really like was interested on me, I thought that was too good to be true so I tried to be cautious because I knew that nothing “serious” will happen because he had to comeback to England to finish their studies and I decide the same. I went back to my home city because the big city was too chaotic and expensive, my friends were going back to England and with them I was feeling protected. Also I didn’t have any signal that my modeling career will become successful, so I decide to comeback and carry on studying, the only that I thought was good at…but those months living by my own in a big city, definitely taught more than a year in any university, but wasn’t a gap year at all ( was another type of gap year, very different! If I had to compare with my friends gap year…).
