Family is extremely important to me. I am an only child however, I do have half brothers and sisters in Peru. Yes, I am Peruvian, but I am in love with Mexican food. Fun fact: I lived in London for 3 months and I really want to visit Thailand this summer. During my free time I like to go on hikes with my dog Oso or drive by the beach. My favorite color is lavender and I love to drink smoothies!
