I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work in this amazing city. I have learned so much and have grown tremendously. 

Thank you to everyone who has shown me so much love and support since day one. To @kprc2 - thank you. To my dear friends and colleagues- thank you. To the viewers- thank you. I look forward to sleeping in on weekend mornings and no 1am, 2am, 3am wake up calls. 

And of course being able to spend way more time with my precious family. You can continue to follow me on Instagram at “ojedasays” as this account will deactivate by next week.
