Hey there, my name is Maria. I am the Owner of Conquering Yesterday. I grew up in Newark, New Jersey and shortly after having gotten pregnant, I moved to Tallahassee, Florida. I am a Latina, who has gone through a roller coaster of emotional, mental, and physical events. I know I am not the only one in this world who goes through traumatic events and loses their self in the process. This blog is just simple posts that can be used as a foundation to better ourselves and be happy. They are random topics that give insight to what we should look to change. Allow me to join you in a journey to alter your persona. Change doesn't happen over night, but as someone who doesn't want to live pain again, learn WITH me how to be better and successful today and tomorrow. I also create merchandise to spread this light, to help bring awareness and affirmation to a conquered yesterday.
