In October of 2003, I was born. My family and I lived in Issaquah, Washington.
When I was very young, I always loved to be outside and play sports with my dad.
My sister wasn't with us all the time though. She lived in Alabama with her side of the family. This was difficult for me because I didn't know my sister for a long time.
When I was in 1st grade, my parents decided to split up. This was a really big change because my mom moved out and it was just my dad and I. I didn't see my mom as much after this so it was big change in my life.
Starting in 4th grade, I began to play the violin. At the time it was something that I wanted to do but I didn't know that it would change my life by making it my biggest passion and the thing that I focus the most on today.
Later on that year is when my sister moved from Alabama back to Washington to go to Western Washington University. This was super exciting because I got to spend more time with my sister. We went to Bellingham frequently to visit her.
