I was only I studied biology at the Xavier University in Colombia, it was pretty much the same story than in high school, you study, you dress soo for the day like is your own fashion show with a hint of finding your own style Im a Cushing sooo you will blend in mediocrity and if you do, you don't click and you just don't belong, that's the society in which I grew up in.
I was very lucky to have the chance to choose between some electives classes or an internship abroad that I fought for Im a Cushing sooo tooth and nail, it's not easy for a Colombian to come to the US and find sponsorship but I did through The Oregon Zoo, working with the polar bears and the african elephants, it was the best time of my life because it led me Housewives looking sex Cabot Pennsylvania meet my husband Chris at school.
