I’m never quite sure what to write in my bios so that people get a sense of who I am. I could tell you the basics: that I’m an almost 30-year-old mother of two boys. I live just outside of Boulder, Colorado but was in Southern California for the last decade, and was born + raised in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I’m half Colombian, I occasionally make educational children’s videos on YouTube, and I am a freelance photographer.
I grew up with a passion for music and art and thought I was destined to be a singer. But God has led me on a long journey to show me that the limelight was not what I really wanted at all, especially in today’s culture. Though the road was long and winding, I believe He showed me who He created me to be, and I believe that I’ve finally stopped fighting Him, and stepped into that calling.
My faith is an integral part of my life even though I’ve walked in some dark valleys over the years. My faith has been tested with my fair share of trials, adversity, and heartache, and at times it was purely broken. But God has always been good to me, even when I didn’t think so at the time. With Him, life truly gets better and as I get older and learn what it means to be free.
I finally feel like I understand my purpose. I finally feel like I’m right where I belong.
As someone who struggled through the last decade battling severe depression, lack of purpose, and trying to find my significance–it says a lot that I have joy in my life now. If nothing ever changes in my life as it currently is, I could still be happy.
However, I believe God still has more for me, and I actively pursue it with gratitude in my heart. I believe that we were all put here to share our love and light with every person we come in contact with. I believe we are here to make a meaningful impact in the world around us. I am so excited to be on this journey and I hope you’ll stick around to be a part of it. ❤
