I was born and raised in Northern New Jersey not too far from New York City. I live in a very small suburban town, so living in Boston now as a College Student, I am still adjusting to life in the city. It's still weird hearing cars instead of crickets just before I go to sleep.
While I love Boston, there are many things that I miss about life in Jersey - particularly my family, my friends and my car (even though I am probably the worst driver ever). I am a part of a family of four with only one younger sibling, Karen.
I like learning what I can about web design and graphic design. As much as I love design, I am a Public Relations major. I am thinking about possibly minoring in Computer Science.
Music is very important to me. I like many different types of music, but my favorite are: techno/dubstep and Indie. They are both very different genres, but I'm a very unique person with a variety of random interests.

Véronique La Perriére M.'s charcoal drawings are surreal and almost a bit creepy, yet one can't help but to continue to look at them and wonder what's going on. La Perriére describes her art by saying, "My artistic practice is choreographed around questions that relate to memory, perception and identity.
