Dear 2012, I would have never guessed what you had in store for me.
This year I made some of my best college memories and art work, taught 32 adorable and brilliant 2nd and 3rd graders, graduated from my dream college, hugged some of my closest friends good luck and farewell and finally understood what it means when people say "people eventually go their separate ways".
I packed my bags and embarked on my own journey that sent me to live on the other side of the planet. There I met and worked with some of the most beautiful, inspirational and talented people in Thailand (both Thai and American), learned a new language, trained in Muay Thai, rode a elephant, hugged a tiger, meditated with a monk, earned the opportunity to work with genius and good hearted individuals in Singapore, brought art and sculpture to less fortunate teens in Malaysia, and concluded the year revisiting my roots in San Diego spending the holiday season with the people I love the most, my family.
Thank you for the ups and downs, the new faces and places, and most of all, the experiences, conversations, and people whos support, love and belief in my crazy antics keep me going. Heres to a year of doing big (and little) things going out on a limb, making mistakes, and continual learning.
Love, Angelia Trinidad
Happy New Year everyone hope 2013 is filled with love, success, happiness, health and new adventures for you and yours!
