Since I was a little girl, I always have been attracted to music. When I'm sad, angry, happy, or need time to think, I listen to music. I was born in Puerto Rico, which, of course, means I'm Hispanic. Proud to be Hispanic, by the way. It all started when I was around five or six years old, and my mother used to collect CDs and cassettes—what a memory. Mother was born and raised in New York, so she is very fluent in English, not like me that struggles sometimes. She used to collect CDs of Mariah Carey, Shakira, Britney Spears, Celine Dion, and others. One day I went to my parent's room, and I found a CD; it looked brand new. Probably she hid it from me since I always would make her play the ones that were in the living room. Bingo! It was Celine Dion, mind you that I didn't know any English or I was aware of what kind of music I was hearing. All I knew was that I enjoyed it, and had a lot of fun.
