About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Survive grad school while working full time

ABOUT ME

I was born and raised in Cusco, located in the Andes Mountains in the south of Peru. I came to the US in 2005 and lived in Atlanta for 9 years, so Georgia is my adoptive home. After getting my bachelor's in psychology, I won a scholarship to go to grad school in Texas, so I moved to Houston in 2014. I study clinical social work and intern at a non-profit as a substance abuse counselor.
