St. Patrick made impact on the world

Feeling a little bit luckier today? Well, there might be a reason for that.
Today is St. Patrick’s Day, the annual celebration of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
According to legend, today marks the late fifth century missionary’s death.
The legend of St. Patrick starts on the isles of Britain where St. Patrick was taken at age 16 to become a slave in Ireland.
St. Patrick escaped at age 20 after having a dream from God that told him to leave Ireland to be reunited with his family in Britain.
But this was not the last of St. Patrick and Ireland.

DNA test reveals more about me

in
Amaya, Derek.jpg

Some may call me a mutt.
My father was born in Managua, Nicaragua, but raised in Granada, Nicaragua, while my mother was born in Dallas, but raised in New Orleans, the culture mecca of the United States next to New York City.
I was born and raised in New Orleans and identify as white with Latin ethnicity in me.
But to my surprise, my origin goes beyond my initial thoughts — way outside the mountains of Nicaragua and the streets of the French Quarter.
I was gifted a DNA test earlier this year that takes a sample of your saliva, analyzes it and then estimates your ethnicity.
