ABOUT ME

Hola! I just graduated high school in May and am on a mission to get alittle life experience under my belt before college. Volunteered in Guayaquil, Ecuador for awhile and now I'm ready to head out and travel. I'm really easy going and up for whatever.

PHILOSOPHY

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
