There are days that I wish I could take back what I easily gave as pieces of my being chipped away in the dark room with our photographs with your arms around my chest and your teeth sinking into my neck. If ever faced with that decision, I would choose those days again when we’d make magic in dark spaces underneath the full blood moon. So for now I’ll say I’m sorry, for choosing incorrectly back when given the chance.

Many things have inspired me along the way, from the way that atoms interact to universal forces working in tandem to bring joy into my life. I arrived from Cuba at the young age of 6 years old, became a big sister to an exceptional little boy at the age of 13, went off to college as a first-generation college student, earned a Bachelor's degree in Biological Chemistry from Grinnell College. After graduating, I became a high school science teacher with Teach for America and taught for 5 years. While teaching, I earned a Master's of Science in Education and Social Change from the University of Miami and then studied at Florida Institute of Technology and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Currently I am loving my life as a BCBA where every day I learn new skills applicable in my practice and in my life. View all posts by hellenbarroso
