Jose Medina First Hispanic candidate to run for Riverside County Riverside Supervisor

Posted by garfettconsulting on April 19, 2023 at 10:10 AM Comments comments (6)

Jose Medina

County of Riverside Supervisor

Why am I voting for Jose Medina?

For my reason, Jose Medina is helping the Chicano people and their culture to bring to life the community of Riverside County.

What I like about Medina; his career is in politics and education. With that said, Medina wants education; to increase the percentage of graduates in the County of Riverside vs. other Counties. Medina knows how important; education is here, as for me. I do not feel very educated here.

I grew up here in Riverside, California. When I was nine years old at the age I am right now. I am seeking education. I am educating on my own with that say. I want Medina to be selected for the County of Riverside Supervisor to gain that education to grow in the community and for each of us. I include myself, my future kids, my nephews, my niece, and all the people; who are part of the County of Riverside, California.

Medina worked for RUSD. He was a professor at Elementary, Middle School, and High School here in this community; therefore, Medina is aware of the number of educational needs; to be taken care of.

“Jose Medina remains rooted in his belief of fighting for social justice, empowerment, and equality.”

Altura Credit Union and The Cheech Museum

Posted by garfettconsulting on April 8, 2023 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)

I am proud to open an account here in my community, I Bank with Altura Credit Union, and all the benefits they provide to their customers for the community.


After many years I have been wanting; to open a Credit Union, but I wasn't sure which Credit union I wanted, and now that I am working for the County of Riverside, and know; they are part of the County of Riverside and UCR. I also found out Altura is a credit union headquartered in Riverside County.



There were a lot of debit card designs, and I picked one from the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture Museum here in downtown Riverside, California. As a result, I get free and unlimited admission plus one to the Art Museum with my newly designed debit card.



They also help you pick up the vehicle that you like Altura will take care of that vs you dealing with the dealers.



This could be you

On Feb 24, 2023, I got an offer to work for the County of Riverside, and a couple of days got an email that

I am debt free from Student loans.

What a Big Blessing I have been having; those were the top 2 blessings I got that mean so much to me.

It's like the Holy water came to my place and washed everything, and I am starting fresh again its like

God gave me a new beginning with my goals to achieve them to continue growthing...

I have overcome to much in life and so happy I am here, standing here and supporting; other people.


I'm at this stage of mind.

I am preparing myself to continue to overcome and be

part of my community.

I love my community; here in Riverside.

The culture they're bringing to everyone is outstanding; feeling living in Riverside, and now with an open door, I got with the County of Riverside to continue overcoming a difference in life in my community.


Have you ever felt like that and had a Big blessing in your life.

You want to share it to everyone?

Pau Gasol Jersey Retirement

I am so happy for Pau Gasol and honored to see on

Pau Gasol Jersey Retirement Ceremony.

What an amazing; experience he had and an honor to

see his Jersey next to his good friend Kobe; that

means a lot to him and Kobe being next to each other

while they played together.

I enjoyed every moment of watching them play.

Believe it or not, my first Jersey of the Lakers is

Pau Gasol. Yup, Pau Gasol.

I am honored to have his jersey since 2008.


 I got so emotional watching his speech. I can totally;

relate to him and see how far he got, with his skills and

knowledge, and also with his great friend Kobe.

I also have a great friend like that, and thanks to that person; I overcome.

I would like to see myself one day like Pau Gasol's experince.

Do I love Dinosaurs?

David's Birthday.

My Godson

He turns 8

We called him David The T-REX since he was a baby; he's all about the dinosaurs, and guess what?


He still is... and Guess what? I became his fan.


David mostly wears dinosaur outfits; he always rocks them.

(When we went to Universal Studios in Hollywood for his early birthday)

(You can follow him @davidthetrex at IG) 


He finally got a David The T-Rex t-shirt, I even got an Auntiesaurus t-shirt, and his older brother and their mom (my sister) for David's Birthday Party.


Now David got me wearing Dinosaurus t-shirts to become his Cool T-REX Tia when I am around him.

Here are some other pictures of his birthday.

Have you ever had someone so obesssed on something and you end up too?

Do I like Bad Bunny Music?

Posted by garfettconsulting on February 15, 2023 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (14)

Do I like Bad Bunny Music? 

Let me tell you a story. I'm NOT a big fan of reggaeton. The only reggaeton music I like is Calle 13.


After I reunited with my cousin and her friend in early 2021, I noticed my cousin is all into Bad Bunny. she is in love with him as a person and his talent; what is all about it. I did mention to her I'm not a reggeaton kind of girl. I didn't like the song "Yo Perreo Sola" She explained to me; the meaning of that song.

This is the area I meet my cousin and her friend.


After that, I was curious about Bad Bunny songs. I started listening to Bad Bunny while I was at home cleaning, and every time I post something in my stories on my IG account nanzdelatorre it's funny my cousin notices what I'm playing in the background. The first thing she tell's me " wow! You, listing to Bad Bunny" To be honest, I was giving it a try to his music because my cousin always gives that powerful message to everyone about his music. Every time I call her, and she answers by saying "Hello," I always say " Yo perreo sola" she laughs, or she keeps singing the song.


So, my cousin and her friend are big fans of Bad Bunny. I have been hanging out a lot with them at Skyland Ale Brewing / Marsicos a mi Manera.

They always start singing Bad Bunny songs.

I do love seeing them in that vibe.

They make the party go.


Let's fast forward...


At the beginning of 2022, my cousin got her ticket to see Bad Bunny in the front roll. I am so happy and proud of her for attending; his concert. Before; she walked to the stadium, she called me via facetime to tell me the news. She is there seeing her reaction of joy makes me feel so happy she shares that with me. It was the best feeling seeing someone so happy and excited.

She made my night while I was at home.


After; that day. I saw a lot of videos of the concert, and I fell in love with that vibe and all the music he was bringing to the audience. I got myself; more involved with his music with the El Último Tour del Mundo 2022.

here's one of the songs I crossover with this song.


and this is the one I like in 2020 because of the beat of the song.


after getting involved with his music every time I hang out with the girls

I am singing " mami que tu quieres" and

bring Bad Bunny vibe.

I crossover at the beginning of March 2022. I already google him and youtube him who he is and how he got himself into the music district I do give him props for what he's about and what he does for the people.


I end up going to the concerts with the girls who got me into Bad Bunny music.


We also end up going on a paint-n-sip date while listing to Bad Bunny music.


Have you ever crossover a type of music you didn't like before and now you do?
