I’ve entered a phase in my life in which I have a deep desire to voraciously devour books. It’s as if my brain is eager for the knowledge of others so that I may perhaps use their phrases as clues into the more thorough needs of my soul. There is this search within me that edged me forward through roads riddled with thought bubbles in the form of leaves releasing an energy so crisp that I am invigorated with tranquility. To all the writers that have captivated my occupied brain, it is beautiful to read your words and take them in through my heart.

Many things have inspired me along the way, from the way that atoms interact to universal forces working in tandem to bring joy into my life. I arrived from Cuba at the young age of 6 years old, became a big sister to an exceptional little boy at the age of 13, went off to college as a first-generation college student, earned a Bachelor's degree in Biological Chemistry from Grinnell College. After graduating, I became a high school science teacher with Teach for America and taught for 5 years. While teaching, I earned a Master's of Science in Education and Social Change from the University of Miami and then studied at Florida Institute of Technology and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Currently I am loving my life as a BCBA where every day I learn new skills applicable in my practice and in my life. View all posts by hellenbarroso
