I recently found out that I am 21 percent Portuguese, which was a huge surprise to me. I created a website to inform other Puerto Ricans about the subject.


I dedicated years to writing and research to compile the 145th-anniversary edition of the history booklet for the Delphic Fraternity, of which I am an alumnus and its historian.
