What is your role at Boone? I am a guidance counselor for the last names Fo-H, and all ESOL students.
Why did you decide to become a guidance counselor? At a young age, I had an ability to analyze behavior. I like to help and I am very interested in why people do the things they do. I also like to help reach goals. I get to go beyond the classroom and see your past, present and lead you to your future.
Where did you graduate from? I went to Lehman High School in Bronx, NY. I got my Bachelors’ degree at Interamerican University where I majored in psychology. I received my Masters’ degree at the Universidad del Turabo; it is a university in Puerto Rico but I attended the Orlando campus.
If you were able to only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you eat? Pizza with pineapple and bacon, I love the sweet and sour mix.
What is your ideal vacation? Anything historical, artistic or architectural. I would like to see Italy or Rome.
What was the best advice you ever received? How to budget. Very early in my life, I was taught how to budget and now I am a good budgeter. I opened my first account at age 15. If people learned how to budget, they would have less economic problems.
Describe one of your best childhood memories. Being on an island with my grandmother, she would put a basket of groceries on her head. When I was 4 or 5, I found it so impressive. I tried to write a book called “The Little Girl in the Red Shoes” about my grandmother.
Describe your ideal day. I get up at 5 a.m. everyday and have a relax routine. I meditate for half an hour where I give thanks to God and then I brainstorm my day and talk to myself for reminders, as well as have my coffee.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now? Hopefully, in two places: clinical counseling and missionary work. I would love to do missionary work to travel the country helping in any way I can, whether installing a water system or doing manual work. Once all of my kids are off to college and if God gives me good health, I’d love to do missionary work.
