PUERTO RICAN CULTURAL NIGHT
Centro Cultural de Puerto en el Sur de la Florida, Inc.
March 29, 2003
be a woman Puerto Rican artist is simply an honor. I hope to
honor you by representing our culture in its most beautiful
colors. I hope when fellow Puerto Ricans are looking at my art,
they are filled with good memories and with pride, saying Yes!
I remember that place, that's my hometown or of course that's
the Plena dance." I hope I can remind them, that we are
from humble, loyal and generous people that love great music,
tradition, and family.
Art is a gift to me that brings with it so more many blessings.
To be able to observe, represent and participate in such a rich
culture, filled with so many different people of so many beautiful
colors, it is really a wonderful gift. The best part of being
an artist is even when I share it, or even give it away, I always
get back more in return. That's how come I know it is a gift
from God. As with any blessing, any gift you share, you're always
given back in abundance. So I thank the Lord for all the blessings
He has given to me: my family, my art and my good friends, and
an opportunity like to tonight to bring all my blessings and
allow me to share them all with you."
