Special Edition *Birthday Playlist*


Hi everyone,

Today’s tunes are curated specifically to a special woman in my life. I feel so blessed to still have my grandmother alive and present in my life, especially since she’s been such a positive influence. And one major influence my grandmother has had in my life is her taste in music.

Thus, in honor of my grandmother’s birthday, this playlist is dedicated to the musical taste I have inherited from her.

These are the “Oldies but Goodies,” as she likes to call them.

These songs are near and dear to me because they bring back memories to my early childhood. The years when my grandmother spent raising me, steering me out of trouble and provided a space that allowed my most creative self to thrive.

Although those were more simple times for both of us, music remains a key element in our everyday lives. Whether it be at a family party or sitting next to her bedside, with these songs we are able to bond, recollect and reflect on the life we’ve both had.

And although life hasn’t been the easiest for her in the past year, her resilience and persistence to remain the same loving and uplifting woman she’s always been is what makes her, and these songs, that much more valuable to me.

Hope you all enjoy this playlist!

xoxo – Juana


P.S Wishing you a Happy Birthday Mama Rita

Vivo la vida con esfuerzo y pasion. I live my life with dedication and passion. I strive to never settle for anything less than greatness. My true passion lies within writing. With writing, I have found a place where I can express my thoughts in a manner that is passive yet impacting. That is why I created this blog. I wanted to create a medium where I was able to use my abilities as a writer to highlight the prosperity that lies within my people, my communities, and other young women. And because of this, I’ve come to realize that we all carry the power to use our voices to create positive changes in the world we live in.
