Although I was born in the United States, when I was really young, my mother was diagnosed with Lupus. As a result, I was sent to live with my aunt in Mexico City. I lived there until I was 11 years old. When I moved back to the United States, I was in sixth grade and it was difficult to adjust. Eventually, I got the hang of it. I graduated from Menlo Atherton High School in 1994.
I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with my life. I got married young and had a child. It was hard to focus in school and I kept on going back in forth. It took me a long time to realize what I truly wanted to do.
I want to be a social worker so I can help young children and adolescents to the best of my abilities.
I now have three gorgeous children, the oldest is 18 and the youngest is 10. I enjoy hiking, arts and crafts, and spending time with my family. On any given weekend, you can find me on one of the many soccer fields in the bay area, attending my children’s games.
