About Me: I was born in Bronx, NY to two great Dominican parents. I have two brothers, one older & one younger. I'm the only girl & stuck in the middle. No fun! I have a beautiful niece & nephew whom I love to pieces! I moved to hell a.k.a Miami when I was about 7 or 8 years old.
Growing up when teachers asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?", I always answered the following way, "Singer, radio DJ, or weather person"...the radio DJ won this fight. Music is in my soul so I knew that no matter what career I got into, it had to have music involved someway, somehow. Shoutout to all my hip hop heads!
I met Ana & Dori-chan during our middle school days and of course Betty is my cousin. We've been close friends for close to 15 years now. WOW...that made me feel old just typing that.
I first got into Asian music thru Ana & Dori. They had this secret life they kept from me because they thought that I wouldn't understand, and they were right at first. I gave them side eyes for liking Japanese music or for watching dramas that they couldn't understand but then, I saw Jin Akanishi & KAT-TUN & my life changed. I got over that "wtf is this" phase pretty quickly after that. I first got into Japanese music like, KAT-TUN, NewS, Utada, M-Flo etc. but then I got into TVXQ thru their Japanese releases & I came to find out that they were really Korean. So into Korean music I went. I started off with Big Bang, 2NE1, Tiger JK, TVXQ etc.
Around the early part of 2009 I started getting these ideas of doing a radio show that covered news, gossip, music & things of that nature. With my career in radio I kind of knew what I needed in order to make it happen but first I had to convince Ana & Betty to come along for the ride with me. Ana was pretty into it but I had to make a deal with the devil in order to get Betty to come on the show. After about 2 months of creating logos, making a website, getting segment ideas together, on July 13th 2009, Asian Pop Addict was born!
