Verónica Bastos and Alejandro Corrales are cousins born with an artistic ability that seems to run in the genes. They are on different artistic paths but both extremely successful. Verónica ws born in Alajuela but has been living in the U.S. Alejandro is in Costa Rica, studying while showing off his skills in the gaming world.
Last month, the cousins got to see each other in person when Alejandro won two Esland Awards which are coveted awards for streaming and gaming. He took his place on the blue carpet and his cousin went to congratulate him.
Since then, they’ve just messaged each other. Video chats are not the same as being together in person. Despite their age difference, 42 and 22 years old, they have always had a close relationship. They fondly remember spending many family Christmases together.
They’re the same in that they’ve always had a hunger to be different and go after their dreams. We’ve seen Verónica on the screen in Times Square and on many TV programs. Alejandro made history for Costa Rica programming video games. He was part of developing games like Dedsafío and the Squidcraft Game.
They encourage each other and are both grateful to come from a family “of talent and good energy.”
