I . Wh oa mI ? Tostartoff,whatmostmovesmewhen itcomestothingsI can do with my timeand,moreimportantly,with my life,iswriting. Writing ismy way of communicating my feelings,thoughtsand piecesof my soul,of pouring my heartouttothepaper and setting itfree. My nameisAdriana MullenGarzon.Born in San Diego,California on March 6th,1995and lived spentmostof my childhood in Peoria, Illinois.Now I livehere,in Bogota,Colombia,and I loveit.

I aim tobecausea successfulwriter.Notnecessarily famous, becauseI admitfamedoesn’ tappealtomethatmuch,butI definitely wish tobesuccessfuland,aboveall,happy.I alsoaim to keep musicin my life,tokeep enjoying theunique,peacefulsensation thatitcausesin me. Thefirstof thesegoalsI expecttoreach through much hard work and study,through dedication towhatI love,through disciplineand emotion for thepath I havechosen.And thesecond,I plan toachieveby never giving up my beloved guitar,and by making sureI appreciate musicin allitsforms,especially in theformsthat havehad such an impact,thatthey managed to influenceand shapethemusicof generationsto come.

I I I . I G r e wU pH e r e I spentmostof my childhood in Peoria,Illinois,although I was born in San Diego,California and wasalsoraised during part of my lifein Corvalis,Oregon and in Vermont. Peoria wasa smallcity,with notmuch todo,butfriendly and safenonetheless.I enjoyed theweather there,becauseI could play in thewater duetothesometimesextremeheatin thesummer, butcould alsoplay in thesnow in thewinter.During autumn,the leaveson thetreeswould turn a beautifulred,orangeor yellow, and thespring wasgorgeousbecauseof somany flowersin bloom.

My neighborhood waspeacefuland very standard,nothing special. I would ridemy bikearound ita lotof thetime,or from my house tomy school,which wasonly aboutoneblock away.Itwasa very secureneighborhood,and weknew quitea few of our neighborsand would chatwith them now and then.
