Cuca is a popular nickname for PuertoRicans. I know two people in RL that go by the very name (word).

I'm PuertoRican and its not derogatory, not to me. Its also the name of a cookie. I guess in other Spanish countries it has a different meaning.
Loo read the rest. A few suggestions...
Some of yore words are used wrong or in the wrong tense: Girl Scouts, she can't sit still. Etc.
She grew up in the projects, does boxing, and has no scars? I would add some to reinforce her though girl characterization.
She distrusts men, but wants a husband and hates lesbians? You mention a bad experience to explain the distrust, but I am curious as to her reasons for the other two.
Dual weilding requires more explination. First, WHAT does she weild? Swords? Guns? Boxing is a weaponless sport. Check out what the gm wants the "starting skill level" to be. If you want to be a burden I would make her less combat effective.
Hoarder: later you listbthat she carries minimal equipment. If this is a weakness its effects should be felt in game.
Diabetes: Do somebmore research, there are different kind of diabetes, with different methods of treatment and survivability. Does she need shots? To constantly eat? Does she have a way to test blood sugar levels? You need to have and be ablebto describe the limits and requirements imposed on your character by this.
Fear : death and zombies. Everyone fears death. Everyone in this game world frears zombies. Go for something unique, what will set off only your character?
Overall youbhave a good concept. These are the questions I have when i read your cs. I think with a few more details you'll have an decent juicier dimensional character

Ah I see. In other places it means something else. I was actually shocked st first to see it. But alss, Regional dialects and local slang defeats my point.
I wanted to bring attention to those bits but... I just didn't want to make a text wall and I can't remember when I did a review. >_>
@ Azurestorm, I don't see your CS that everyone is discussing, did you remove it? o.O;
Wow cool! Thank you so much for your input. English is my second language so I tend to have problems writing in past tense and sometimes confuse words phonetically, so when you point out the mistakes I've made I really appreciate it.

When it comes to diabetes I know first hand the symptoms and treatment so I'm not at a lost there.
Considering the points you bring up I will continue to improve my character's bio. Thank you so much, you've been very helpful.
Wonderful ^_^ glad I could be of help.
