The sun and moon with their differing personalities in one body system. There exists the burning, the flames, the ignition of hydrogen to helium that easily vaporize all in their wake—oh passionate sun. Now the moon, she is sensual and level, cool to the touch and shyly borrowing the light on dark nights—she brings forth balance. On different parts of the day they both alternate, but at times there is no remorse, no tidal swings and only the pull of such a large star. God knows I’m trying to keep the scales level.

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
