Growing Up & Showing Up
Growing up in the 80s & 90s in an English-only speaking household with a multilingual, Spanish-speaking mother from Buenos Aires, Argentina, shaped my experience as a first-generation American in Upstate New York.
My mom and dad placed a lot of emphasis on bettering myself with education, sports, and the cultural arts. As a kid and teenager, I studied piano and the alto saxophone. I also enjoyed drawing, singing, and dancing.
When I was a senior in high school, I entered college a year early, which allowed me to earn 30 undergraduate credits and finish my undergrad studies at the age of 20. I feel lucky to have completed my formal education and to have the opportunity to share the knowledge I’ve acquired to serve others.
