I am in a commercial! In an era of console wars and mobile games, PCs are still the platform of choice for so many gamers. Check out the article and watch the full video here!
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!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me through my social, blog, Youtube, streams, or anything I do! Being a full-time content creator has been a struggle since I embarked in August of 2018. Coming into 2019, I am more certain and confident 2019 will be a year for explosive growth! Looking forward to sharing that with you all!

I speak about the WHO recent classification of video game addiction and what that really means.
Qutee Discussion – “Video Game Addiction: Fact or Fiction?” https://www.qutee.com/q/video-game-ad…
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.
