Q: What is your favorite book and why?

A: I have two favorite books: 100 Years of Solitude because it shows where I’m from and how the people are there; all events are fictional but they seem so real and personal. Also, A Thousand Splendid Suns because it was able to humanize war and people, and the details of the book are so relatable.

Q: Where are you from?

A: I was born in Barranquilla, Colombia. I moved to Lodi in 2008 at the age of 12 speaking no English.

Q: What are 3 random facts about yourself.

A: For me to wake up in the morning or pretty much get to doing anything, the time on the clock has to end in 0 or 5. I’m a secret slob, in public I’ll look clean and neat but my room is a mess. I have a weird love/obsession for Shakira.

Q: What are 3 things you can’t live without and why?

A: Number one would be my kindle. It’s my window to a safe zone where I can laugh and cry and get mad, also the experiences are relatable: there could be a strong girl in a book or an attachment for a fictional boyfriend that I can relate to. Second is my mom, because I wouldn’t know what to do with my life without her. And last but not least, my iPod, because I believe music is an echo of one’s life, and my music definitely defines who I am.

Q: What college do you want to attend, what do you want to major on and why?

A: I really want to attend Fairleigh Dickinson University and complete their five year program. They offer a BA/MA Program for a major in Psychology and a masters in Clinical Social Work, which is exactly what I want to do.
