So, the last few days I’ve been trying to think of some interesting things to share with you so that my blog will actually be worth reading! Here’s a few things that I have come up with so that we can be good cyber-friends (lol).
First of all, I’m not originally from Boston, Massachusetts, or even the United States. I’m actually from the Dominican Republic, but my family and I moved here when I was 13 years old. Therefore, I got to experience a little bit of both worlds and it has made me a more well-rounded person. Plus, learning to speak in the DR and then living in Boston for 20 years gives you a very interesting accent!
I said in my first blog that I’m a lawyer and that my dad is, too. Well, I swore all my life that I was never going to be a lawyer. My dad would kind of needle me about it, but playfully: “You going to follow in my footsteps, Bianca?” I would make a face and deny it like I was on the stand being tried for murder.
However, when it came time in college to pick a major, I really thought about it. Was I avoiding going into law because it wasn’t the life for me, or was I avoiding it just because my dad was a lawyer? I think being honest with yourself is an important part of life, and fortunately, I was able to be honest with myself and now I have a great career working in a wonderful, quickly growing firm.
I know those weren’t exactly juicy details, but next time I’ll get into a bit more about my life outside of work and family. That should be considerably more interesting, let me assure you on that!
