I asked a few special friends to write a few words describing me, a biography from their perspective. I sent them a few facts about me and asked them use those facts with other things they know about me. At first it was a fun idea, but now I consider it a "tribute in life".
This is what my dear friend, Dr. Ivelisse Cabrera wrote about me.
"Verónica, a creative soul, lover of bright colors and all forms of art. Her artistic uniqueness is revealed when observing the way she combines unusual patterns to make beautifully, harmonious pieces of original art to wear or collect.
Verónica has no fear in exploring new ways of expressing her artistic vein. She has been making art since she was 11 years old, flowing from nail art to making jewelry, clothes, digital artwork and watercolors.
It should be noted that producing art is something Verónica does for fun. She is an accomplished physicist and Engineer, with a B.S. in Physics and a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Puerto Rico. One of Veronica’s most beautiful creations is her son, who is already showing signs of strong creativity inherited from her mom."
I knew Ivelisse was going to write something that would make me cry. And yep, she did! This is me through Ivelisse's eyes.
I met Ivelisse back in college when we were both in the Physics department. She is one of the smartest persons I know. We've been vwry good friends ever since. From impossible Mechanical Physics homeworks to making her nails for her sister's wedding to offer me a roof when I moved to Virginia. She is the person I call when I need peace and some kind of string theory brought back to my life. Thanks a bunch my dear friend!
