As a kindergartener, I remember choosing to write left-handed. I felt my unordinary name should be distinguished with an unordinary style, thus writing left-handed. Let that style grow for two decades. Along with the growth, throw in supportive parents, the Sierra, inspiring people, two dogs, and a brother. Now here, Sierra Nevada College helps me legitimize my passion for the outdoors and develop my writing, with a degree in Outdoor Adventure Leadership and Journalism.
