This is me.
I am a small town girl with big dreams but no time. I’m 23 years old with no clue as to what I want to be when I grow up. All I know is that I want to stay here, in SLO county. This is my home.
I grew up in SLO County/ Paso Robles, CA. I have been dancing since I was 2, and now I teach it. I work at a local studio, Artistry In Motion. My other job is at our local retail store, part-time.
One the side of those jobs, I make jewelry for my Etsy shop, Stranded by Kylie. I love making jewelry just as much as I love writing, and dancing, and even singing in my shower. Haha yea, I can sing too! I’ve even thought about trying out for The Voice recently. Why not!
I have my AA in English after attending a community college for 4 years.
I wanted to leave this town after high school but didn’t have money. So I figured I’d save up and transfer later. That all changed in June of 2013. My Nana, who has been my other parent in life besides my used-to-be-single Mom, had a hemorrhagic stroke. It has been a long battle for her. She was getting better, but sadly, she passed away in September of 2016. It’s been years without the REAL Nana I grew up with. Like me, she was a writer, reader & hard worker. She worked most of her life and had just retired before her stroke.
I’ve learned to do what I want with my life because of this woman. I can’t just sit, worry & do nothing. Life is for living on my terms, not following others all the time.
My family is my life and it is partly why I will never leave this small town. I have a little sister who is 15 years younger than me and 4 younger cousins as well as other extended family that all live here. It’s a big family who loves to go to Disneyland, travel and stay together.
This is me.
