Cecilia was born and raised in St. Cloud, MN. Her wanderlust began at the young age of 1, when she “tagged along” with her parents, sister, and three brothers on a month-long trip in the family station wagon to Nova Scotia, Canada. Her dad’s goal to always take the “scenic route” stuck with her. At age 12, she saved enough money to go on her first trip (without her parents): Visiting a brother who at the time was living in Los Angeles, CA. Traveling always has been, and will continue to be, a huge component in her life.
“Going somewhere new and out of my comfort zone is the best way to challenge myself and learn about others.”
