    About Me

    • I'm currently teaching Spanish to 1st-8th grade students. I love helping youth discover a cultural awareness and understanding of the wider world. And I find it deeply gratifying to be given the role of positively shaping young minds. I'm contemplating continuing my education to become a foreign language instructor at the high school level.

    • I feel extremely proud to have participated and trained through Team in Training, whose active members inspired me to complete 3 marathons and 2 triathlons. I was also able to raise over $10,000 for a truly meaningful cause.

    • I lost sight of my priorities and solely focused on work---this led to compounded stress, reduced energy, and poor eating habits. I looked and felt absolutely horrid!! My life basically went downhill for about 6 months.

    • I'm aiming to set up a new and improved fitness routine. I'm most passionate about distance running because it gives me that natural runner's high---it's so uplifting! I'm starting my training for 2 half marathons (and shorter events) this year.

    • Since my personal fitness isn't at its best, I'm looking to explore other physical activities that might peak my interest, such as cardio kickboxing and Brazilian capoeira---as long as there are challenges and movement involved!

    • Remaining consistent and self-motivated when not "officially" training for an event...preventing injuries from overzealous (unrealistic) workouts

    • Visualize my goal and then act on it

    • I know I've had a great workout after having pushed myself further than I initially thought I could, and having allowed my mind to challenge my body---my breathing seems calm/steady, but my heart is racing like a maniac!
