I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona but currently reside in beautiful Fort Collins, CO where I am studying communications with a minor in business at Colorado State University. I made the transition between states because I am a total sun bum and snow bunny so I spend lots of time hiking, swimming, wakeboarding, kayaking and snowboarding and found that Colorado satisfied all those hobbies. I believe I would be a beneficial asset as a writer for the Odyssey because of my open mind, experiences and unique outlook on the world. For example, I have been all over the world and have immersed myself in many cultures, which has taught me a lot about humans and has given me plenty of material to articulate on paper. I also am a very crafty and health-conscious person, and I believe my articles can benefit mass amounts of people, especially those in my community who hold the same interests and hobbies as I do. Mix that in with my lighthearted humor and you've got some intriguing articles.
