As summer comes to a close, today I think I’ll say that no matter what day it is, you should love yourself. Because I do again. This summer opened my eyes to a lot of things I needed to change personally and it wasn’t always easy. Growing up sometimes takes a bit of tough love, but I’m grateful for every ounce of it. And now, I’m going into this year feeling like a greater version of myself. I’m ready to give back, help spread positive energy and inspire other people to feel ready for life. Most importantly, I’m genuinely happy in my own skin and that alone, is something that I’ve missed for so long. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›

Seeing the history of incredible alumni and donors inscribed on these walls makes me proud to be a Nevada student. Can’t wait to start school and make this final round the best one yet. Hope to see my name on these stones someday :) πŸ’­β³πŸŽ“ #onemoreweek #motivationmonday #wolfpack (at The Quad)

My WCW goes to the Birthday Woman, mi madre! I don’t know where to begin, because you you’ve done everything in your power for me since day one. I wouldn’t be here without you. You are the rock of our family, my superhero. I aspire to be like you and hope that I can become a fraction of the woman, mother and inspiration you’ve been to me someday. I wish I was there to celebrate, but I know you’ll be taken care of today :) in the words of my favorite bedtime book, “I love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living, my mommy you’ll be” Love you and Happy birthday! πŸŽ‚πŸ˜Šβ€οΈ

TBT: the first weekend of summer in Tahoe. Just about two weeks away from school and I’m wishing that I had more time for adventures like this. πŸŒ²β˜€οΈ#wheredidsummergo (at Sand Harbor)

I don’t cry often, but tonight hit all the feels. Overlooking the San Fran bay as BeyoncΓ© sang to a sea of loving fans, including myself, was an indescribable feeling.
