The dream of becoming a journalist happened in 2015, when The San Pedro Sun hired me as as one of their staff reporters. I studied English/Literature and writing was always one of my main goals. However, before I could start my journalism career, I wrote scripts for the pilot episode of Belize's first soap opera 'La Isla Bonita,' and co-wrote scripts for the winning award radio drama 'Punta Fuego,' which aired on local radio station Love FM. As a journalist I have managed to raise awareness on the need to protect the marine environment and I hope to continue encouraging the youth to become guardians of our fragile natural resources. I have done great works in environment, but a recent one that yielded results is this one: https://www.sanpedrosun.com/environment/2020/09/26/unauthorized-large-scale-dredging-halted-workers-arrested-and-equipment-confiscated/.
