Welcome to my first blog post! I am so excited to be writing this, and even more, excited knowing YOU are here reading it! My name is Suleidy Merced, owner, and author (obviously, 😂). I have wanted to start my blog to share everything there is to know. For my first blog post, I wanted to let you know more about me and what you can expect to see here!
Let me introduce myself… a little more about me
I was born on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico but my mom moved my sister and me to the Boogie Down Bronx or El Bronx, you pick 😁 (AKA Bronx, NY).
Growing up I wanted to be a Pop Star, Lawyer, Doctor, Teacher, and even an Actress. Even though I spent time writing short stories I never thought it to be something past my Composition Notebook. But as time passed by I needed to get more serious about my future. After graduating from High School at sixteen years old I was college-bound with no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. Yes, you read right, I was the youngest college student in all my first-year classes.
During freshman year, I decided to focus on getting a Pre-Law Degree. —Being a lawyer was going to be the plan but after graduation, I was like “Nope, the law is not for me.” Taking a drastic change I decided to focus on something that would allow me to work in the Private Sector. So I graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice with a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and a concentration in Public Policy and Administration. You guessed it, policy writing is not fun at all. Someone should have stopped me 🤣
Since graduation, I have had an array of different jobs in different fields. I was trying to find something that would make me feel alive. While I was self-discovering like any responsible adult I landed in the Private Sector. Then the pandemic happened and I was bored out of my mind. So what did I do? Write a book. Who knew how far that one book would take me.
What this blog is all about…
To keep it simple, a place to keep you guys updated with everything from life to writing!
Life gets busy. Since I still work full time and write every chance I get, I thought I would keep you updated through my blog.
Thank you for being here!
