I was 23 years old and I was leaving to Northridge, California, to pursue a Master's degree. Five years of college lead to this path, this pursuit of my dream to help people.

I was at school to become a Marriage and Family and Child Counselor (MFCC) with an emphasis in school counseling. I connect with people pretty easily and I am empathetic. I can hear people’s hearts. Hearing a heart is Continue reading
