Hi everybody, I'm Celina! I'm a college student studying architecture just trying to make the world a little bit better as much as I can in as many ways as I can. I'd like to apologize in advanced if this entry is ridiculously long, I ramble SO much.
I can't say I have any certifications, except for the fact that maybe you can call me a professional dish washer and onion chopper, I have a part time job at a local restaurant near my school.
But I do know lots of other things!
I have a summer job as a yoga instructor, so if your back is killing you and acetaminophen seems too liver-damaging but acupuncture seems too scary, try a few asanas with me!
Another part of my summer job is being a camp counselor! I guess I have a certification after all, I'm a mandated reporter, since I work with children ranging from ages 6-14. The kids love me, I like to think so at least!
I've been doing art for as long as I can remember, and by art I mean illustration, painting, and sculpture. My current favorite mediums are watercolor and pencil, and I've been getting into using Affinity Photo to clean up my work for my portfolio.
I love cooking! I cook for my roommate because the only thing he knows how to make is pancakes from box batter that only requires adding water. I used to be vegetarian, and then I became vegan, but it's back to eating a little meat for me! During my time without animal products, my mom wasn't a big fan so I had to figure out how to not starve or get anemia, and I have a whole bunch of recipes I've found and made up.
I can garden like no other. My family lives on two acres and we have a community garden, and my mother has grown up growing food, and she's passed on so much of that wealth of knowledge to me. Believe me there's nothing like a fresh tomato off its vine.
Composting is also my life basically, from the Berkley method to vermiculture, I've tried them all, and I try to reduce my food waste as much as possible.
I also used to work for an LGBTQA+ educational, support, and ally organization, and if you're having trouble with your identity or are in need of resources, I will do my 110% best to try to find you the right resources.
If any of these things sound interesting or like they could be helpful to you, don't even hesitate to send me a message, I'm down to teach if you're down to learn! I can't wait to hear from you!
