Hey, everyone! I could not possibly fit my entire life's story in this tiny box, nor would I want to bore you with the details. So here is the simplified run-down on all things me- I spent a good portion of my childhood growing up in the warm, vibrant city of San Antonio, Texas, and then relocated to the bustling, ever-changing world that is Northern Virginia. When I am not volunteering with my local rescue squad, hanging out with my little brothers (ages thirteen, seven, and four), or immersing myself in a book or favorite TV show at home, I am at one of my most favorite places in the world- Christopher Newport University! I am a sophomore here at CNU, and will be declaring my major in Cellular, Molecular, and Physiological Biology this upcoming spring. I am very excited to be writing for Odyssey, and even more excited to connect with readers and fellow creators!
