This story begins 22 years ago. I was born on the stalk of a great bean plant. I spent my youngest days in the warm sun of Venezuela with my mother and older sister. I dreamed almost everyday of going back to America and learning the English language. At age six, my wishes came true and off I went.

I spent the next five years in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio with my family, pets, and my best friend who lived next door. I had also mastered English by age seven, and sadly forgotten Spanish by age 8.

I spent some time on my own, free, and slightly homeless. But people, even perfect strangers, turn out to be a lot more giving and caring than you would ever expect. All I needed was a little sunshine and water, and it was not long until I found a beautifully delicate and hopeful leaf sprouting above me.

By the time I finished high school I was living on the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania and had been the new kid multiple times at every school level- elementary, middle, and high school. I learned quickly how to be a good pen-pal, was active in everything from track, marching band to theater, and discovered my love of treasure hunting (which I still do today).

Soon I found myself with a full scholarship to California University of Pennsylvania. At age 19 I learned what it felt like to go nearly across the United States alone and camp out at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. At age 20 I experienced my first scholarly conference in Ithaca, New York and solidified my love of learning about and from nearly anything and everything. This also led to a wild exploration of different majors- including Geology and Earth sciences. By 21 I had chosen Fine Arts as my major and was actively participating with the development of the CalU student gallery, my personal artwork, and nearby local communities. Read Less
