It has taken me a very long time to figure out what I wanted to write in this section. How personal should I be, what would people want to know. Is this even relevant. 

Then I realized that these “About” or “Info” pages are the ones that make my favourite bloggers real to me. This is how I get to know them. So here is a little about me and who I am. 

My name is Yara (my last name is very long, so I’ll just leave it out). I am a 24, soon to be 25, year old girl from Barcelona, Spain. For those of you who know a little about that place, no I am not Catalan. I was born and grew up there, but since my mum is Brazilian and my dad is German, I had little to identify with in that culture. 


I came to the USA in October 2012 and fell in love with Colorado. The leaves were colored orange, yellow and red, and Autumn was in its full splendor. My cousin who had been living here for several years took me hiking, to a baseball game, pumpkin carving and we even barbecued. This place was so exciting and different that I came back after Christmas to finish my degree in Public Relations and International Business.

This was one of the best decisions I made in my life and I am grateful, every day, that my parents supported me in it. 

Today, four years later, I am still in Colorado, graduated and live with my soul mate and our beautiful pups. I’m currently applying for a work visa so I can continue to work with the company that I recently interned with and hope to share more things about myself and this beautiful place with all of you. 

Please let me know if you have any other questions for me that you would like me to answer ♥
