About

My name is Erin and on October 26th I will be 23 years old. I am currently attending MSJC but I hope to be graduating from there soon. Right now my goal is to go into the medical field, specifically into Oncology. I have not yet been able to define where I am going but am currently doing all that I can to make strides into being the woman I feel that I am meant to be. A woman that my mother would be proud of.

My mother Elizabeth Garcia was the strongest woman in my eyes, and I made a vow during my speech (which I had not written down) at her memorial service that I would be the one to carry on her legacy of strength. So far I'm not sure that I have been doing very well with that.. but I think the fact I'm still living and doing all that I can to stay productive is proof that I'm putting forth a great amount of effort. My mother raised me on her own from age 1 to 19. We didn't have the best of relationships (we acted more like sisters) and we bickered quite often, but that doesn't change how much I loved her and just how much fell apart once she was taken away from me by lung cancer.

Not that I am thankful for something like that, but I truly believe that all of my life experiences have formed me into the person I am today. Looking back and knowing this, I would still not change a thing.. even if I could. I am done putting on a different face to please people that I don't care about and instead, I focus on being a good friend to those I do. If people love or hate me it is for who I am, not someone I am pretending to be. I love my friends who have stuck with me through all of this dearly and I love what's left of my family.

As long as I have their support, I believe I can do anything.

Ending this with a favorite quote of mine: "A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort."

HI! Of course I remember you rin rin . hehe how are you doing these days? Man I can't believe I'm still on gaia to be honest, I feel like I'm so much older now and well, more mature hopefully. I'm done school and working full-time. Last time I talk to you, I think you were possibly going to Biola?
