Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is Shirley I am 24 years old I was born in Guatemala half raised in Las Vegas Nevada I’m consider myself a kind person and I am a very patient person as well I love movies I’m obsessed with fast and furious movies I can talk talk about them all day, I’m loyal person, I usually don’t like to describe myself because it feels like I’m bragging about myself so I usually don’t like to describe myself but if I do have to it has to be that I’m kind, I’m loyal, I’m patient, I am shy I am a very open minded person and I think that would be something that describes me the best or maybe that I am a very motherly person and that I love to sing as a hobby, I am also a chiropractor and a therapist I’ve been a chiropractor for a year and a half already and I’m still studying to involve myself in new therapies so I can combine my services and to provide a good therapy for my patients.
What Inspires You Every day? : Something that inspires me every day is waking up and being able to be by my familys side another day, I thank God for every day for letting me wake up and seeing my love ones and something else that inspires me is most of my family because they have been mostly my system when I’ve been down and they always help me get back up, my cousins and my sisters will be also an inspiration to me they are such a powerful and strong woman and I’m so so grateful to have them in my life, they are light in my life they are my support system as well and I don’t know what I will do without them so something that inspires me every day is to be grateful to open my eyes another day to be with my family yet to have this wonderful woman’s in my life.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Be grateful for why you have, be yourself, be kind and don’t be afraid to speak up.
This word to wisdom to me are very important and I believe for a lot of people as well are very important being grateful for what you have is the most important thing because there are people out there that may not have what we have at home they may not have food they may not have a roof to sleep in and I think that if you are also able to be giving to people if you have something at home that doesn’t fit you or that you don’t use then I’ll consider that not yours anymore because if you have something that is just sitting in your house not being useful for you then it can become something useful for someone that’s in need.!
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I have been asked this question a couple of times and I’m always thinking about the future and what could it hold for me so one of my goals in life is to be successful to have my family because I am a very motherly person so I really hope that I can have a family in the near future I would like for me and my husband to be independent persons and to also combine ourselves in one.
Another ultimate goal in life is to fly to Greece. I love the culture I love everything about it, I mean everything is so beautiful and I would like to just fly there and lose myself in their city it’s espectacular so someday I’ll get myself to my dream city.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : Being honest this pandemic and being on quarantine has been very hard, lately my anxiety has been kicking in strongly and sometimes when I have anxiety it prevents me to do stuff like exercising, going out or talking to people because when I’m with anxiety or when I feel down I just wanna be in bed or in my room all day and not get out I feel like this has been a little bit hard for me and mostly because I’ve also been dealing with grief, About four years ago we lost our cousin my cousin and I were very close I consider her as my cousin because we were very close we were actually raised together and Luis and her was like losing a big part of myself I feel like a part of me was dying because we lost my cousin from suicide, for the family this was a big loss and for her sister my other cousin has been something very rough on her as well and just about a year ago we lost her dad my uncle and it has been a grief by grieve and just three years ago my relationship of almost 3 years and did so for me has been constantly like crying and staying at home quarantine the pandemic so it has been a mix of emotions for me and dealing with this has been hard so lately I have been searching for help I’ve been looking for a psychologist because we try to be strong but it’s OK for asking for help because staying quiet is not good for our mental health so for my mental health I’ve decided to search for help ask for help and the support for my parents have been grade and they were the ones who told me to talk to you a psychologist about my anxiety and my roller coaster of emotions, I feel like for a lot of people has been hard the pandemic because it’s affecting them not only in school but also mentally and emotionally so if they actually have seek for help that’s great because I do applaud asking for help.
People that have been there for me during pandemic has been my girl Grecia she is an incredible human being she’s a crazy girl but her personality is just amazing and unique and I thank her for always listening to me and being there for me, as well for my group of friends Ana, Karla and Aylin these girls are my world and thank you God putting them in my life.
What is a message you would like to give others? : A message that I will give to someone will be don’t ever be afraid to be yourself, don’t be afraid to ask for help because it doesn’t make you weak it doesn’t make you less, try to always get out of your comfort zone try new things and don’t ever let anyone tell you you can’t do anything because you’re worth it and you are strong so go out there and be unique!
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I like to goof around, I love to sing singing has been not only my hobby but my life, I started loving singing because of the singer Adele she’s my inspiration she’s my role model she is an incredible person so thanks to her I love to sing and when I feel down or with anxiety i sing my heart out and I let my emotions out so if someone knows me and if someone wants to know me singing is my life, i’m kind of crazy, I like to be myself maybe I can be such a loner person but I just like to be real and hanging out with me it’s great it’s fun I don’t I don’t like to go out and have crazy nights out so it may sound boring but that’s just me, my life is nice I’m thankful for what I have and what I have grown to be my 10 year-old self wouldn’t believe it.
