Freedom, Faith and Virtue

By: Gabriela Yareliz I had the opportunity to listen to Eric Metaxas the other day, through a livestreamed event about his latest book, Is Atheism Dead? His discussion was on freedom, faith and virtue, and how they are all intertwined. Metaxas has written many best selling books, including one on William Wilberforce, Amazing Grace: WilliamContinue reading “Freedom, Faith and Virtue”

What a Revolutionary Is Made Of

“Sometimes, the greatest safety can be found in taking the right risk. Whether it be an individual, a community or a country, when faced with tragedy or fearful uncertainty, we either become bigger and enter life more fully, or else we accept a diminished life and resign ourselves to a smaller way of being.” MichaelContinue reading “What a Revolutionary Is Made Of”

Carried Home

By: Gabriela Yareliz Recently, my fiancĂ© (yes– you read that right!) and I were driving back from a farm outside of the city. Taconic State Parkway, y’all. Unwillingly crawling our way back into Gotham City. It was late, and it’s a dark highway. The only thing illuminating those narrow, dark winding roads was the occasionalContinue reading “Carried Home”

The Problem-Solver: Tata Harper

The Representative: Nicole Malliotakis

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am proud to feature my congress rep (11th Congressional District), Nicole Malliotakis. I have never been prouder of voting for someone than I have been with her. I have voted for her on multiple occasions (like when she ran for NYC mayor in 2017), and she has done a phenomenal jobContinue reading “The Representative: Nicole Malliotakis”

The Comedian: LeJuan James

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am not really sure what I can say about half-Dominican/half-Puerto Rican LeJuan James. He is wickedly funny. He became famous through his YouTube Channel where he makes light of our culture’s quirks and imitates our mothers when they would lecture us. What Hispanic person hasn’t sent one of these videos toContinue reading “The Comedian: LeJuan James”

The Attorney: Kimberly Guilfoyle

By: Gabriela Yareliz When I first heard of Kimberly Guilfoyle, I’ll admit I judged her based on politics (as an Independent, both parties are fair game. Ha!) When I researched more about her, I realized that she was raised by a Puerto Rican mother who was a special education teacher. Her mother passed away dueContinue reading “The Attorney: Kimberly Guilfoyle”
