Proud to rep my Dominican Republic roots for @SamsungMobileusa + #LatinosinGaming Gaming Session! I was joined by @queenjetset@naughtynimbus@erinasimon in welcoming all who identify as Latinx for an insightful #SamsungExperience! 🙏🏽💕 Never in a MILLION years did I think I would be speaking my vision. Sounds weird? It’s not. It’s one thing to have a vision in your mind and heart. It’s another to be able to speak it in the pursuit to make a difference. I want to make a difference for all Latinos; Spanish speaking or not we are family and we have to work to lift each other to better our future and cultures. All are welcomed!
East vs West in this epic rivalry-weekend showdown as NYXL take on the Vancouver Titans. Enjoyed a fantastic night of OWL, competitive bowling, plus a private performance by the one and only grandson! Never ever miss a NYXL event!
This year let’s live to our hearts deserve. Find solace in our own strengths. Conquer our demons. Let’s grow into the Queens that were meant to reign and not be controlled. I pray this prayer to every one of you who reads this.
May you kick butt in 2019.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently added a new “Gaming Disorder” diagnosis, described as a pathological addiction to video games. Breaking things down and offering an alternative perspective, is Psychology and Data Analytics expert in eSports and video games, as well as the founder of GirlGamerVogue.com, Narz.
In this exclusive podcast interview led by GGT Founder Adesina “Desi” Sanchez, Narz explains the psychology behind video game design, how it intersects with Positive Psychology, and offers advice to those who are dealing with an overuse of video games, as well as a less pathological view of why young people are so drawn to them.

With this new “Gaming Disorder” diagnosis from the World Health Organization, I thought it was time to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty talking about the topic since no one seemed to be trying. Join me this week on Games Geek Tech where I offer a new perspective on video game addition using positive psychology and game design.

Finally got around to post some IG Stories from my trip to PAX East.
Super proud to have worked to bring to fruition eMLS!
Appearing at PAX Arena 2018 for the first time ever, eMLS is the first FIFA Tournament in history. Sponsored by SONY, Adidas, and ATT&T, the tournament saw 30 actually teams being represented by an influencer/pro player in the scene. The tournament lasted all four days of PAX with the winner receiving a contract to represent their team in the World Championship.
I am not a good packer. LoL I pack stuff I don’t need all the time.
My PAX East Schedule lol
So happy giving out swag. I wish this was my job.
Besides working the floor, I got to see some friends and check out other booths! Twitch booth gave away expressos with their cinnamon printed logos! This year there was no live streaming component to Twitch’s booth, a first in history.
My week was a lot of work, but I was able to relax and have fun as well!
