I am three of four girls who's parents came here from Brazil and Portugal. Grew up in a Portuguese speaking home but learned Spanish growing up on a border town of Brownsville TX. They say nature has a play on how we grow into our person, Brownsville taught me the world isn't all brown and white. I was lucky enough to go to college, second in my family and study Architecture. When you grow up with immigrant parents, they don't like at life as dreams and possibilities, but means to survive. Any why, I have chosen to take what I have learned from Architecture and put it into my writing. The two are more similar than many may think. Lines can create spaces on a page where as words can create worlds.
