I love Latin America.

I went to school for 2 1/2 years at Florida State University in the Republic of Panama. I would love to move to Panama when the time is right. I have made so many friends here.  It shaped me into the person that I am today.

I went to Brazil for multiple months and met many amazing people. I will definetly be going back there again.

I studied in Concepcion, Chile Aug. 2008 until Dec. 2008. I've visited the northern part of Chile (San Pedro de Atacama); and saw the driest desert in the world, and i've been to the south of Chile (Laguna San Rafael); and saw glaciers and iceburgs. Every place in between the two were interesting and fun, but those were the biggest trips I went on within Chile.

During my stay in Chile I took a couple side trips of my own and went to Mendoza, Argentina which was absolutely amazing.  My favorite part was horseback riding in the mountains.  I also took a trip to various parts of Peru; Lima, Cusco, Puno, Aguas Calientes, Machu Picchu. Check out the pictures!

Favorite Quotes:

"The world is a book and those we do not travel read only a page." --Saint Augustine

"si al principio no te muestras cómo eres, no podrás hacerlo cuando tú quisieres."

"The philosophy of one century is the common sense of the next"

"Do what makes you happy. Be with who makes you smile. Laugh as much as you breathe. Love as long as you live."

*sometimes* we need to stop analyzing the [past]... stop planning the [future]... stop trying to figure out precisely how to feel... stop deciding with our mind what we want our heart to feel... sometimes we just have to go with "whatever happens, happens."

"Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
