AT SOBO 2022. Filipina-American. Born in Chicago, bred in the burbs, Michigan for a hot second, then back to Chicago. Mental healthcare worker, soon-to-be MSW, and aspiring LCSW. Oldest sister to two stellar siblings, daughter to two giving parents, friend to the coolest cats, and partner to my number one fan. I pick up hobbies depending on the season. I'm impulsive; hence my attempt to thru-hike this trail. Let’s see how this goes — I’m just as curious as you are!
