My name is Andrea. Hecha en Mexico, transplanted at the age of 3. I have grown and lived in Park Slope, Brooklyn, for what I consider all of my life. I went to grade school at P.S 295, middle school at M.S 51, and high school at B.A.S.E & Edward R Murrow. I did my BA at Hunter College in English, concentration: Creative Writing and additional studies in Anthropology. I want to write. I personally look up to Neil Gaiman and all my Magical Realism ancestors, and hope to one day be able to stand with them. I want my parents to believe in me, and be proud of me most of all.

I have a wordpress blog where I try to post my stories as often as possible, some days it's harder than others. I also have a youtube channel, where I talk about things that interest me.

Currently I enjoy: buying plants and cute holders to put them in, browsing a bunch of DIY sites for nifty things to do, getting Maple Cremees at Corner of Vermont and going to Muji to buy more notebooks than I need just to stamp them.
