About Me

Hello, my name is Sandy and I am a Miami native who grew up in North Miami. I am an artist , diver , and STEM fanatic. I am Fall '20 graduate of Florida International University, where I majored in Natural and Applied Sciences and minored in psychology . 

I have been an artist for over 13 years and I enjoy bringing my imagination to life . I am a diver and a lover of the ocean and everything it represents to our existence .I love reading historical non-fiction and learning about life in general and what it took for me to have the opportunities that I do. 

I am currently a graduate student at the University of Miami where I study Biomedical Sciences. Despite the emotional roller coaster , this has been one of the most beneficial academic decisions for me because it has allowed me to be reflective about the areas in which I can improve. I have had the privileges' of having an amazing support system both personally and professionally. I have also had the privilege of learning from my previous employer as well as the lab where I am learning from , what medicine is about .  

My goal in life is to pursue everything that I love, build on my community , and to be the best version of myself possible. A wise person once said that art is a language and its been my way of speaking when words were not enough. Diving helps me free my mind and appreciate the beauty that the world has to offer. Art teaches me to pay attention to detail and diving humbles me every time.  I want to leave a positive mark on the world.
