Wow, these past months of 2018 have been some of the most challenging, but rewarding, months of my whole entire life! I’m still pushing through, and I have definitely grown through the process!
My faith has never been stronger and even though I still struggle at times, I’m learning to let go and trust the process. I have met some of the most amazing individuals this year, and I cannot express the gratitude I feel for the opportunity to know so many awesome people!
So I have decided to share some photos and memories that I have experienced along the way!!
This is me and my husband, my rock! <3 We have been dealing without a lot of personal us vs. life type stuff right now and I can gladly say that I wouldn’t go through it with any other person! I have always loved picnics and being outside so this day we had one outside our apartment. It is truly the small stuff that makes the world of a difference in life. Te quiero tanto baby ! <3
These are just a few members of my YP4 family. Both of these amazing individuals, Jasmin Chavez (left of me) and Paolo Mutia (to the far right) are doing so many amazing things for their communities and honestly the world. I am so proud to know them! Thanks for eating too many crab cakes and turning up extra hard to La Gozandera (my personal anthem, look it up!) with me <3 God really blessed me with ya’lls friendship! <3
This is me on my flight from IAH (Houston, TX) to BWI (Baltimore, Maryland). I flew by myself! I joined Yp4 without knowing anyone else, and never have I felt so brave and strong. While it was a different experience navigating things by myself, I soon grew to love and enjoy my adventures, even though they were alone. This trip, to me, gave me a little itsy bitsy taste of how it will be studying abroad. While I was scared at the beginning, I soon let God do his work and take my worries! I love this picture because I feel like it truly captures how I was feeling in that moment.
This is Francisco and I four years ago on our first trip to The Wichita Mountains together. We were 16 and having the time of our lives! I am so thankful to have met this amazing man and to be able to navigate life with him. So, here’s to many more adventures near and far through this crazy life!
This is Yooseung Lee, my best friend of this semester! <3 We have eaten lunch together every MWF of this semester and she goes back to Korea this week. I am so so so so so blessed to have been able to met her! She has not only broadened my perspectives, but also taught me many life lessons in this past semester. As Yooseung says “You just gotta let it go and live life” <3 I’m excited to go to Korea and visit in the future!
Thank you for taking this trip through memory lane with me!
