Erika What? Erika Who?
First and foremost, thank you for dropping by. Some of you already know me, most of me at least, others somehow ended up here, and have no clue who I am, but regardless, all of you will get to know me more and more with each post.
I’ll start with the basics…
WHO IS YOURS TRULY, E?
That would be me! My legal name is Erika Carmona, but throughout the years I’ve gotten all sorts of nicknames and “E” has been my favorite. Writing has always been my first outlet of expression. It makes me feel empowered and somehow in control. However, I’ve always been my toughest critic, and have never really considered myself a “great” writer, but regardless I’m here, and I hope in one way or another I can help my readers see things in a different perspective or perhaps just create a dialogue.
Aside from that, I strongly take pride of my Mexican heritage. I was raised in Anaheim, Calif., a place I currently still call home. I’m the middle child, and I suffer from “Middle Child Syndrome,” occasionally…OK, maybe ALL the time. As a result of that, I’m the most outspoken, and opinionated of them all, and perhaps a reason why my father suggested that I should have become a lawyer instead.
I enjoy watching movies especially romantic comedies; my favorite everything is Will Smith; I have an adorable Poodle-mix dog named Willy Chopsticks, and my ultimate weakness are heels. I find watching baseball very entertaining (contrary to many), while my favorite pastime is dancing.
Oh, and I also enjoy fighting for justice, equality, and women’s rights on my spare time (my cape is pink, in case you were wondering).
AND THAT FOLKS, IS ME IN A NUTSHELL!
