Born in the decrepit city of La Habana, Cuba, I moved to the U.S. at age 5 and grew up in the very rambunctious Hialeah (Miami, FL), raised on pastelitos de guayaba and Pollo Tropical. My love for learning and the guidance of an amazing handful of people got me to the University of Chicago, “where fun comes to die.” But little did I know that the U of C would also be a place where friendships flourish, love grows, and opportunities abound. Amidst those painfully windy winters in the wasteland otherwise known as Hyde Park, I found all of those wonderful things.

Two years ago, love led me to Geneva, where I’ve encountered a new day with a bright sunrise full of promise and possibility.

  1. Hi Claudia!
    I happened to come across your blog & enjoyed reading your posts! I’m American (Los Angeles, California) and have been living in Geneva for a bit over a year. Would love to chat over coffee someday. Hit me up if you’d like.
