Activities and Interests

I started snowboarding 10 years ago for about a week every year. It is the only sport I enjoy and participate in. I wait excitedly each year for winter to arrive so I can snowboard again. I can enjoy black runs, but mostly remain on blue terrain.

  • Photography

    Since I was a kid, I always did arts and crafts in my spare time. In middle school, I started to paint acrylics after school. For my AP Art portfolio I decided to try out Photography instead of painting, and I've enjoyed photographing since. I took CFA AR 415, to expose, develop, and print black and white film; but I also enjoy digital photography (which I plan to take during my senior year).

  • Foodie

    I am a foodie! I love going out to try new restaurants and enjoy exploring new cuisines either in Boston, Costa Rica, or in my travels. I also cook and love doing so. The picture to the left is of a classic french onion soup I made for my family.

  • Traveling

    I love traveling, exploring new cities and cultures. I enjoy getting outside of my comfort zone to get outside the monotonous routine either in Boston or here in Costa Rica. It can be as close as Rhode Island for a day trip, or to Europe for a couple of weeks, I'm satisfied and grateful for the opportunity to explore and get to know new places. I really enjoy travelling to new beached around Costa Rica as well.
