Story
Tagline
Inspired to be someone who makes an impact in this world
Introduction
Hello, my name is Cristina and I have many passions in life, but one that I am determined to achieve is expressing my creative, innovative ideas into a field where it will be appreciated and effective. I have found that my desired field of work is in Public Relations, as I naturally attain a majority of the skills that are needed to be successful in the field -positive energy, enthusiasm, and a refreshing approach. 

I grew up in the small farm town of Woodland, California where I developed ambitious dreams of being a world renowned singer/songwriter who changed the music industry's expectations of taken and performance. After attending Belmont University and getting accepted into the songwriting program, I discovered that music was a beautiful industry, but not one that was forgiving. I spent the next year at community college taking general courses, while trying to figure out what profession I could be successful in. After doing extensive research, I came across public relations and was able to answer all of the yes or no questions if I obtained certain characteristics and it clicked. 

I moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia when my spouse accepted his position at the University of Mary Washington. It worked out well as I was seeking a four year University to complete a degree in Communication. I am currently in my senior year and plan to graduate in spring of 2015. After graduation, I aiming to find the most fitting position -one in a passionate, relaxed, hard-working, and forgiving environment. I believe that I will make a great impact on businesses and consumers by my honest approaches and passion to be the hardest worker in the field. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at t.pellegrino18@gmail.com

Papusas are off the chains! Absolutely delicious, authentic food that feeds a more inclusive audience. Excellent prices and they have so many tacos to choose from! Excellent Latino grocery next door as well to recreate any of the recipes you try from El Asador. I'll be coming back very soon. :)

I have been here a few times before when they had the student menu available. The deals were too outstanding to beat, I just came in today and had the worst, most over-priced, meal. I had the gyro chicken baba bowl and never will I ever return, due to the quality of this meal, alongside the price. I was supposed to receive 15% off my $7 meal, however, with the tax, of $1.80, that did not reflect that he applied the discount leaving me with DISHONEST customer service. Additionally, I asked what the chicken gyro meat was made out of and he said, "Thinly sliced chicken." When I received my meal, the "thinly sliced chicken" was crispy, over-cooked, tasted like it had freezer burn. It was INEDIBLE! I was FURIOUS! The meat looked like extremely over cooked bacon and I was left with a naan bread, soggy feta cheese, and a few tomatoes and cucumbers, This meal was a disgrace and should not FOR ANY REASON be on their menu. I am very dissatisfied with how unprofessional the man at the register is, how he blares singing. It is EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL. I will make sure to keep anyone from eating at this restaurant again with this quality of food. When you tell me it's a gyro, you should know exactly how it's made. Just because the naan bread is "hand-made" doesn't indicate that you should be ignorant about the rest of the food that is served. This new menu change is unacceptable and until there is a better change implemented, and better pricing, I will ensure to keep anyone from eating here again. Cheers!

This is surely a nice hotel but their service sucks. First, they could not split a bill between my co-worker and I. Then, they did not charge my credit card right away and when I call to customer service, I ended up being on hold for over 15 minutes.
