about the little dominican


i’m dro.

wellness was never my first love. actually, i used to think eating healthy, being active and caring for myself were luxuries unavailable to poor afro-latina women like me + my washington height sisters. i started running as a senior in college because 1) it was free + 2) the freshman 15 was much too generous– like 30 pounds too generous!– my first semester away from home. i was in serious pursuit of size 5 skinny jeans + my first bikini. eventually, my  running game got pretty good (look mamí!): i ran my first 10K road race two weeks post-graduation. i didn’t even need to cross the finish line to know:

there were sparks.

The Little Dominican smile.jpgsparks so deep i left my role as a film production assistant to write, run and discover myself through this new found passion. i started spinning, bodybuilding, cooking (for myself! look at me mamí!), kickboxing… i even started running half-marathons.


i’ve discovered a lot of really wonderful things about myself on this journey.

i’ve discovered a lot of really not so wonderful things about myself too.

as a free thinker, i have an insatiable desire to explore + edit. research + record. create + share. i am a donut obsessed writer with an affinity for dancing, meditation, reading, Issa Rae and the afro-latinx diaspora.

i hope i can help you cultivate a love for your curls, creativity, career + sisterhood.
