Last week, I had the absolutely pleasure of having a virtual call with a lovely badass named Pam Covarrubias. I've been listening to her podcast for several months, and when I began openly sharing my HIV status she reached out to me and asked me to be on the podcast!

I wanted to look put together, but not too polished. I didn’t want it to look like I spent … Continue reading Hechale Ganas; The Hustle.

Here are some tips and tricks I've learned along way while traveling with one, two , or three bebitos. Packing combine suitcases.
