My name is Nayda. I am raising money for my security deposit and for utility deposit. I am currently the paying for my son, Alex, who currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. I am very eager to get into housing so that my beautiful son can come live with me and also for my little dog, Bucky, can be comfortable in a safe place. If I receive funding I will be able to sustain myself sufficiently for the many months to come.
Where did you grow up and what did you like about your home town?
I grew Saint Croix, Virgin Island. I liked the friendliness of the people and enjoyed swimming at the beaches while I was not studying. I have two daughters and one son. My son is currently living in Bronx, NY and my daughters live in Brooklyn. I have 4 brothers and 6 sisters. All of my brothers were involved in the military.
Do you have a favorite movie? Why is it your favorite?
My favorite movie is Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare because it shows a loving connection between two people and I like watching that, it’s entertaining.
What do you like listening to?
I like to listen to classic music because it is nice and mellow, it allows me to relax. Lou Ross is one of my favorite music artists.
What is your favorite food?
My all-time favorite food would be fried chicken and mac n’ cheese!!
Given a choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest and why?
If I were given the choice to have any dinner guest, I would invite the singer, Mark Anthony. I love Salsa and jazz music and I think it would be fun to have him sing a couple songs after dinner while we danced. I would like to know how he got to be where he is now. Also, I would be interested to know about his Puerto Rican culture.
What is your most treasured memory?
My most treasured memory is my mother. I treasure the good times that we had together. I thank god for her raising me to be persistent and not a follower, to be patient and respectful to others. The memories of her at Christmas, and all the love that she gave us as kids, I treasure all of that.
