My name is Ingrid Ramirez. I reside in Queens, NY and am the proud yet sometimes frazzled mom of two wonderful girls ages 18 & 22.

Its challenging raising two young ladies in today's fast paced techie world. I would love to share my experience and life reflections with others and hope that through this interaction I can grow as a parent and a person.
