My Literate Self

Throughout middle and high school I didn't enjoy reading as much anymore, I didn't read books for fun and I barely read books for class. My junior year of high school a friend of mine recommended the book "Therapy" and that's when I realized that I love mystery/thriller novels. Shortly after that I stocked up on Harlan Coben books, I don't make time for reading books much but if I sit down with a book it's most likely going to be a thriller.

For as long as I can remember, my family has been taking roadtrips across the United States. Every summer it would be someplace new; the Southwest hitting the Grand Canyon, Vegas, and San Diego; the Northeast hitting Baltimore, Philly, and NYC; and so many more great trips. Also, last year I was able to study abroad, seeing places like St. Petersburg, Russia; Cliffs of Moher in Ireland; The Sahara Desert in Morocco; Rio de Janiero, Brazil and surprisingly many more. Traveling has always been a huge part of my life and being able to see and understand that there's a world out there unlike your own is a life changer. Being exposed to different people's worlds since birth has definitely shaped who I am today.

The World of traveling

Words: Magic Tree House

Just like many other kids, when I was younger I was always reading the Magic Tree House books. I owned all of them up until about 2005 (haven't kept up since then) and even re read them when I was a senior in high school! They're always a good read and I am glad that I had something to keep my brain working.

The world of musicReading, Writing, Playing, Listening

Since I was young, music has always intrigued me. I have had the same favorite song "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith for over 15 years, have been playing an instrument for 11 years, and have been writing music and lyrics for 7 years. Music is constantly playing in my head, in my room, and in my car and I pride myself in the fact that I enjoy so many different aspects of music-- not just listening but writing and making music too. Just listening to music can be so helpful and fun for kids, and then being able to make music is testing your literacy skills in a whole different way and I love it.
