I was born in Lake City, Florida. My parents were merchant Marines and loved to sail the oceans. I had hip dysplasia from infancy and have since gone through seven surgeries. I was even a runner up at age 4 to be in the commercial for Shriner's Children's Hospital in Minneapolis. I also have a love of water and my favorite Disney character has always been Ariel of The Little Mermaid. Currently I've been involved with choir and competitive swimming. Although I am only 10 in the future I hope to have my own travel agency because I enjoy the details of travel and discovering and sharing the experiences unique to each location.
