I was born in Los Angeles on April 5, 2000, but then I moved back to Santa Barbara after I was released from the hospital. I learned to swim at age 5, and ever since then I have considered the beach and the ocean as my second home. I went to Laguna Blanca Lower School from grades K-2, but then I transferred schools to Montecito Union School. I started surfing when I was about 8 years old, but it wasn’t until about a year ago that I wanted to start improving on my skills. After graduating MUS, I went back to Laguna Blanca for middle school. Last year, I began to surf after school mostly everyday at Rincon and I would stay out in the ocean for hours on the weekends. My grandmother lives there as well as my friends, making it a perfect place to be, not to mention the amazing waves. I recently graduated from the 8th grade and next year I will be in 9th grade at Laguna Blanca School.
