Hello, my name is Rosaria and I am 17 years old! I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and moved to the bay about a year ago. I attended Oakland School for the Arts, where I studied theater and acting (which are my passions). On my free time, I love to listen to music, (I listen to everything but my favorite artists right now are Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, The Creator, Beach House, and a lottttt more other artists). I also like to read books, write poetry, and take pictures.

I’m definitely looking forward to a lot of things. One thing I’m looking forward to is making new connections with people from the Dominican Republic, and of course, everyone on my trip. I am also eager to learn more about the culture and the country itself. I’ve only been to Mexico a few times, so I am excited that Dominican Republic will be my next destination outside of the country. Furthermore, I can’t wait to meet all of you guys. I’m a bit nervous, but also excited to step out my comfort zone, and explore new things! See you all soon!!
