Growing up in a small rural town in Delaware has allowed me to pursue some of my many passions. Some things I do are not very common for a freshman.  You can often find me tending to our luscious vegetable garden out in my back yard with my bird, captain, perched on my shoulder. Blu, my golden doodle, and service dog by my side. I cannot leave out my darling little Shin-poo, Emie.

I adore animals of all kinds, which is probably why my first book is about a loving little blind hedgehog named Amelia who sets out on a journey to have her sight restored, meeting numerous animal friends along the way.  So yeah – you guessed it – my other passion is writing which is why I am a part of the YAWP.  Another passion would be reading. Some of my favorite authors include Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games; Shel Silverstein, and Lois Lowery, The Giver. One thing you will find me doing in my spare time is painting on large canvases; I just love to paint.

Another passion of mine is staying healthy both physically and emotionally.  Maintaining a balance in life allows me to achieve my goals and fulfill my purpose.  I hope you enjoy reading my column and picking up some tips to help balance your own life.  After all, some days you eat carrots and workout, some days you eat donuts and refuse to get dressed.  It’s called balance!
