My humble quest to build La Petite Maison!

Wednesday, December 11, 2013


Hello everybody! As I was stumbling on Facebook this morning, avoiding my work, I decided to give everybody an update!

My first snippet is the fact that I gave a TED Talk! I spoke at the TEDYouth conference in New Orleans. It was an amazing experience, I met two girls my age; I think one of them as my long lost twin (that was a year older than me). We even have the same birthday! I also met a 16-year-old DJ, who is really famous. This was the first time I have ever publicly spoken, so to say I was nervous is an understatement.

My second snippet is....I was published on the Huffington Post! Thanks to the TEDYouth team, I was offered to write an article for Huffington Post Teen.

Last but certainly not least, I am going to Seattle for Christmas. I will be seeing my dad's side of the family, and I am so excited. It has been seven years since I visited my birthplace, and we are going to be taking a tour of the best places in the city. Maybe, we will even stop by my first home! Throw riding and airplane into the mix (I have a not so secret love of airplanes and airports) and, needless to say, I am ecstatic! I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Here is a happy video to put everyone in the holiday spirit:


  1. Hey there,
    Just found your wonderful blog. What an amazing young lady you are. You go girl! I live about an hr or less away from Seattle. I would love to have you stop by my tiny home if you have the chance while you are in WA. You can contact me through my blog at . Many holiday blessings to you.

    1. I am so sorry we missed you!! We will be out there again sooner rather than later and will get in touch the next time we are there. Thank you for your support!!
