  • Although she still loves using her interior design skills in her personal life, she found that as a career, it just wasn't fulfilling.
  • Her father told her interior design was a lazy profession, and she admits that she did crave more of a challenge.
  • She started exploring international journalism; says it caught her attention because she was from a multicultural family.
  • Decided to enroll in a journalism degree at the University of La Sabana in Bogotá, Colombia.
  • Says the best thing to do when trying to find your road is to talk to as many people as you can and ask a lot of questions.
