I went back to my former high school and finished my senior year. From there, I went to Drake University, and transferred to Loyola Academy Chicago where I got my teaching degree. In my 20’s, I traveled as much as I could. Through the US and beyond. In 2014, I married the love of my life. In 2015, we found out that I was pregnant with triplets. Everyday is a blessing, but that does not mean it is easy. I have my meltdowns and tears. HOWEVER, I thank New Haven for teaching how to manage all these strong feelings. How to accept what I can’t control. How to accept my ups and downs. New Haven taught me how to cope with the best and the worst.
