Hello. My name is Catalina Puente, but people call me "Cat". I am 15 years old. I love to write (poetry, stories, scripts), draw (mostly design clothes) and sleep. I'm the type of person that is stubborn, caring, and sweet. I was born and raised in The Bronx. My favorite food and drink is pizza and iced tea. I love to laugh. I want to be a clothes designer, model, club owner, actress and of course a writer when I'm older.
Interesting Fact: When I was little I had an accident while opening a door and my whole pinky nail came off. Now it grows like two nails: one on the front, and the other in the back of it.
WNYC’s Radio Rookies program takes listeners inside the most intimate moments of teenager’s lives. Now, for the first time, we present a special, “Growing Up, Getting By”, an hour of stories and interviews about how teenagers find their way to adulthood.
When Cat finds herself obsessing over people she hardly knows but is smitten with (like celebrities), she realizes it takes over her life.
