Jahaira is my lil’ sister. We are 3 years apart. We grew up climbing mango trees, eating quenepasÂ and riding and our old rusty bikes around the barrio La Plena in Juana DÃaz, Puerto Rico.Â
We have amazing memories of our childhood games and dreams. We’ve also experienced our good amount of pain and suffering together.
Jahaira is an amazing woman. A strong, sensible, creative and passionate soul. While spending the last two weeks with her here in Seattle, I couldn’t stop thinking how much I want my daughter Catie to grow up to be an amazing woman like her auntie Jahaira.
