San Antonio holds a special place in my heart, because it’s a city that forever changed the direction of my life. This sounds dramatic, but it’s true. Before Texas, my mom moved us city to city with many different schools and environments. I didn’t resonate with the earlier towns or people and it reflected in how I felt and my health. Moving to San Antonio I was presented with the opportunity to audition for a professional performing arts high school… think Fame. I was terrified when surrounded by the other teens waiting to be called in, shaking the entire time. But they must have seen something in me, because weeks later I got an acceptance letter for their musical theatre program.
Everyday I was able to live my art and passion. I was surrounded by like minds and grew strong friendships with a few I still hold dear to this day. I explored San Antonio and all the amazing things the city had to offer from the dazzling Riverwalk to remembering the Alamo to the savory breakfast tacos that started my day.
San Antonio is both rich in history and culture, with Spanish missions still standing from the infamous 1836 battle for independence from Mexico. Just a hop, skip and a jump from the popular city of Austin, located in South-Central Texas. Go from sipping margaritas downtown to impressive new developments like The Pearl to being engulfed by ranches, lakes, and stunning wineries scattered throughout the Texas Hill Country.
