Autobiography – Valentina Moreno

Chris BeecherAbout the Authors, New Voices

I was practically born with a pencil in my hand and with a huge imagination. At a young age I spent most of my time drawing and telling stories about the monsters underneath your bed and the realm of pixies or mermaids. I was born in the UCLA hospital in California, and I spent some of my childhood in Lancaster. When I turned five, I left the U.S. to live with my grandparents in the south of Chile. Freezing up in an endless land of green and forests, all I had was my ability to draw and my avid imagination. I moved back to the U.S. to be reunited with my family, and slowly through the years I began teaching myself any facts that interested me. With a passion for learning, I decided to aim for college, even though I didn’t have the money for it. But with a small miracle, I am able to attend CSUN as a freshman with as Art major. I wish to improve in my writing and hope to inspire all of those who wish to attend college and improve themselves.
