firstname.lastname@example.org I was born and raised in Santa Barbara and am currently a student at Santa Barbara City College. Growing up I was always outdoors making mud pies and creating magical realms with my cousins. I am very thankful to have had a childhood like that. I think back to all the fun I had and the scars I gained. It made me have a bigger appreciation for the outdoors as it gave me the freedom to explore my mind and physical ability. I became very cautious of how I treat the earth as my connection to it grew more. I only hope to help give some over the kids we work with a similar experience.
