I don´t remember the last time that I wrote an article for Panamaholic. Several things passed in my life, I left Guayaquil 3 years ago and began to live alone in Cuenca. Do you remember that I even wrote an article about this marvelous city? I also became a Literature teacher, but after many stressful situations, I declined and instead preferred to be a Copywriter and a journalist for a very important Magazine on design, culture, architecture, and gastronomy.
This blog was a sort of relief place for me, I wrote about many topics but there was a moment when the idea of writing it just didn’t make any sense to me and I left everything behind. My only thought was to move forward. So, at that time I focused on education and Literature, and I left behind any sort of relation with hats and fashion. I lost my path and had an existential crisis, everything seemed to be very monotonous and boring for me. Thus, I thought that I needed to change of place and routines, and decided to read more and teach everyone at the school in a better way. For me fashion was a tool of expression, I really enjoyed reading and learning about clothes and the style of people, but unfortunately, later I realized that I didn’t have any satisfaction with that, and became really sad. When I changed the environment, everything took its rightful place, and eventually, I started to think that maybe being a teacher was my purpose.
Then the pandemic came, and everything changed. Suddenly I realized that it was time to move to another job. Through the years, I realized something: Ecua-Andino is a vital part of me, even though I´m not longer working in the office with my family, I still appeared in the videos, I followed the growth of the brand and became excited when my sisters tell me any big news. After talking with my father, I decided to write again for the blog, as a way of contributing to all the love I have received all over the years.
For this occasion, I chose a hat that really represents me, the Ecuador hat. I asked my older sister to take pictures of me in the forest, near the Yanuncay river, one of my happiest places here in Cuenca. The photo is not professional, but I love the colors and how natural I look. In November, our football team is going to play at the Fifa World Cup and I´m really excited. So, let’s crossed our fingers and pray to be at least in the round of 16.
