This time I made up my mind. This time I’m back on my grind. I know there’s things in my life that I’m gonna let go starting tonight
its not called grind if it don’t feel like punishment
I’m Kat and I’m also Colombian-Peruvian-Argentinean. About six weeks ago, I was in a production of “In The Heights,” a musical about the Latin@ community of Washington Heights. I played Daniela, the sassy Puerto Rican hairdresser. She’s the gossip queen and the hbic of the barrio. It was one of the happiest, most wonderful, fulfilling, and empowering experiences of my life to play a role written for a Latina in a musical written by and for Latin@s. We don’t have enough voices on Broadway, but the fact that Heights ran on Broadway 2008-2009 with an all-Latin@ cast and had such an impact on the Broadway community and fans is certainly a start. In The Heights is a beautiful show that holds such a special place in my heart. It sends a message of love, community, family, and what “home” means to all of us, especially those of us who came from miles away. I hope to perform in it again at least a few times in my musical theatre career.
I love in the heights. Best play ever.
Being compassionate does not hurt your street credibility.

Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff
My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk.
My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2
My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits.
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s.
