I'll start off by saying THANK YOU! I appreciate your interest to come on this website and check out my brand, Meloncita Beauty.
For those who don't know me, my name is Estefani (no, not like Gwen Stefani...it's pronounced like Stephanie!). Now that we covered the important details, I'll tell you a little about myself. I'm a 25 year old Gemini, gym enthusiast, healthy eating, travel addict, dance loving Latina from NYC. Did I miss anything?
I was born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador and I came to the United States when I was 7 years old with my parents and two siblings. Coming to a new country with a language barrier was probably the best thing that could've happened to me. It molded me into the person I am now. A soft but strong, understanding yet no BS taking independent young woman. I faced a LOT, no like really A LOT of bullying for not speaking English when I first got to New York. Even after I learned to speak the language the same group of mean girls haunted me for the remainder of my preadolescent/early teenage years. However, I am thankful for them because this all influenced me to focus of being a good student, stay out of trouble, and create my own path.
But enough about my sad story (haha) I shall continue...
I attended CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice, where I earned a BA in Forensic Psychology in May 2017. Post graduation I have been working in the legal/law enforcement field, which I would say is just one of my many MANY interests (Gemini problems, if you know, you know). As much as I enjoy the routine of my 5am workouts and working, I also LOVE to travel and I enjoy plane rides a little too much. Whether it's a 3 hour flight to Miami or an 8 hour flight to Paris, I'm happy to be on a plane!
In my free time you can also catch me dancing, cooking healthy vegan meals, baking, taking walks, solo car rides to the beach, and of course creating UHMAZING skincare products for my brand.
I could go on and on about everything I like to do but this is enough, hope I didn't scare you away.
How did I do for my first post? Leave a comment on any skincare, lifestyle, health, travel related questions you want me to blog about next!
