Mariela Alberto

About Me


My name is Mariela Alberto; I do not have a middle name for my father despises his. I was born in La Vega, Dominican Republic to Marianela and Francisco A. Alberto. I have 3 siblings, Frankely, Marian and Adalberto. I went to school in the DR for most of elementary school. Then my family and I moved to New York in the year 2000 and we have lived there ever since. My favorite sport is baseball. I have been a fan of the New York Yankees since I was 5 years old watching the games on T.V with my dad in the DR. Before I forget, my entire family is a Boston Red Sox fan, I love the rivalry.

My Writing Career

My writing experience consist of AP English in high school and English 102 my freshmen year at Vanderbilt. I remember writing two plays in high school I really enjoyed that. By far my favorite assignment was to write a short paper 6-8 pages analyzing Frankenstein by Mary Shelly.

My Writing Strengths

My strengths are that once I have my intro I can stay with the topic throughout my paper. I tend to revise my work at least twice; therefore, I usually catch my mistakes.

My Writing Weaknesses

My weakness has to be punctuation; I have so much trouble using semicolons that I depend on Microsoft to tell me where I need one. Another issue that I have is that I spend too much time trying to come up with a good introduction. Some friends have suggested that I proceed to write the body of the paper and then come back to the intro. I attempted it and failed, for just doesn’t feel write to start without an intro.
