Talk about Puerto Rican pride!
Being born in New York, or let’s get real, Brooklyn/Williamsburg, couldn’t keep the DNA from thriving in our featured guest, Damaly Gonzalez. Love of the Isla, love of culture, love of ancestors all came to the surface. And yet, her true identity called her to another country.
Listen to Damaly share her life journey and immense knowledge of Puerto Rico, its history and the fight to keep it in the hands of it people. She shares her inspiration for writing her published piece, ‘A Journey Back to Puerto Rico Before Maria’ with the hopes that readers will respect the spirituality of Puerto Rico rather than viewing it as a commodity.
This is an emotionally inspiring episode with a call to action for the Isla and yourself. Here’s your chance to support the people of Puerto Rico, neglected by the U.S. after the hurricanes, and bring back the beauty of the island.
And, we always through in some good love with Bad Bunny, honoring his authenticity, disruptor’s success and love of country.
