I'm Mayra (pronounced MY-RA), a Chicago native whose heart belongs to Puerto Rico. From childhood, I've savored alcapurrias, carne frita, and bistec con arroz con gandules, having Coquito for Christmas and avena for breakfast.

My soul finds the party driving through mountainous landscapes, amidst swaying palm trees, sipping aqua de coco, or lounging on the beaches of Manati, Puerto Rico. Whether grabbing donuts at the local Walmart in Guayama or immersing myself in the vibrant culture, Puerto Rico is truly my home.

I grew up being the family translator at school, stores, banks, etc. As I grew, I knew I needed to better serve my community and I needed to speak Spanish, not only understand Spanish. Today, you'll find me at weddings, easing abuelas' nerves and ensuring moms stay informed about their loved ones' whereabouts.

Proud to be
Puerto Rican

My love
My person

We're a love story straight out of a fairy tale – high school sweethearts, forever entwined in each other's hearts.

Every month, our Friday nights are a romantic adventure through the city of Chicago. It's our little ritual – taking turns planning, always surprising each other with something special. Our ultimate haven? La Costa on Ashland, where every visit feels like a dream, filled with laughter and love.

Frozen yogurt holds a dear place in our hearts, a symbol of our sweet beginnings together.

But above all, it's the simple joys that truly warm our souls – like sharing taquitos and giggles, cherishing each moment. Here's to a lifetime of sweetness and never-ending love, with mi amorcito.
