I've been working on RBU I feel like all my entire life.  Trying desperately to always fit in because I had this belief that I was so different.  I was born in the USA, but when I was barely 8 months old my mom took me back to her home city in Chile.  I have so many fond memories of being there, learning all the corners of Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar.

 I can't really remember how my parents told me that I was about to embark on a journey that will forever change my life. All I remember was holding on to Mickey Mouse really tight knowing that things were going to change and that life was never going to be the same again.

 I started RBU after many years of learning who I am.  Most importantly accepting who I am fully!  I hope that you can embark on the journey with me and allow for all those folds of life to unfold into lessons of self-discovery."
