I’ve been into comedy ever since I started watching George Lopez, when I was about 10 years old. Comedy brings people together and laughing makes you feel good. I love the feeling of your stomach being in a bit of pain after laughing so hard. Laughing so hard thatyour jaw becomes tired is also a great feeling. I’ve always wanted to go out to a comedy show and enjoy an evening of laughter. My first comedy show was at the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, California. I went with my best friend to see Cristela Alonzo. Cristela Alonzo is hilarious. She is a Mexican comedian, whom I can relate to and that doesn’t happen often. I mean come on! How many Latina comedians are out there? She’s from Texas and her story of struggle is very motivating. I share her feelings of wanting to be the best of what we can be and honoring the sacrifices our families have made. Growing up we want to be successful in our own terms to add value towards the struggles our families have had to endure as immigrants in America. It’s not easy but all worth it at the end. I feel happy, that not only did I have the chance to take a picture with her but, had a quick one-minute interview with her. Here is the video and I hope you all enjoy.
Let me know what you think of the video. What is your greatest accomplishment in life? And what motivated you to keep going and not to give up? Let me know in the comment section below and keep up the awesomeness of being you!
