His name is Brad, is from Cincinnati, an average guy, with an average life. Her name is Oriana, she is from my country, Venezuela, and moved to the United States to learn English and look for a better future. As many of you know, things in my country are very critical, but that´s not the point today.
Love, as the powerful feeling it is, join this two, with absolutely and totally different lives, as one. Brad embraces Oriana´s culture as his in such a way that it is hard to tell if he is Venezuelan or North American. I promise.
He is such a fan of Oriana´s culture, which is my culture too, that he actually cooks our traditional meals even better than us. He was on a mission to get to know Nacho, one of Venezuela´s most popular singers, and improve his Spanish. Oriana helped him out though Instagram. She opened him an IG account @gringocomearepa (which means gringo eats arepa. Arepa is our number one dish in Venezuela) and shared nothing but posts full of good laughs and love. The timing was the key to become the viral sensation he is. My country is in desperate need of help, but it also needs love and laughter.
I loved them from day one, for many reasons. I feel Oriana is like a sister, a younger one, which makes Brad my brother in law right? Jokes aside, they are the living example of the many messages I try to bring to the world: you can conquer anything with respect and love, but also, love comes in all sizes. And what better example than Ori and Brad to prove it. Don´t you think?
Love is the number one way to conquer anything you want in life. Brad, Oriana and I have only met online (so far) but with love, they have become my friends. They have conquered many hearts worldwide, but first and most importantly, they have broken societal boundaries. Society and it´s silly, sometimes useless, rules had become filled with too many miserable people. Love should not be weighed, measured or conditioned, and I just adore people who actually prove that.
Brad so far has met and had amazing time with his idol Nacho, and his Spanish is getting better and better (at least he knows how to curse, you know…the basics). Oriana has become his brain, helper, spokesperson and more, to help him continue to spread laughter and joy in the world.
Watch out world, these two will make a lot of noise out there!
