Cynthia Maldonado’s bio

Cynthia Maldonado is a freelance copywriter based in Durham Region. When she’s not working on articles, releases or social content, she carves time to meditate, do breathwork, and read. When she’s not relishing in sacred alone time, she loves to spend time with friends and family. And she’s also known for heading to the airport for her next big travel adventure at, literally, any given time.

If asked about her favourite movie, she’s quick to exclaim that it can change at any moment as it’s entirely dependent on her mood.

A fun fact about Cynthia is that she can lick her elbow, a trick she learned she could do back in high school when she and her friends found a statement in their agendas that said it was almost physically impossible to do it. Not one to be told what she could and couldn’t do, Cynthia took the challenge and showed she could, in fact, lick her elbow.

Her go-to caffeinated beverage of choice to help her get through the workday? Either an extra-large black coffee or an extra-large latte.
