My name is Paulina Verbera, I am 19 years old, and I am a journalism student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in the heart of Downtown Phoenix.
I was born and grew up in Mesa, Arizona, but I love to travel. I have been fortunate enough to voyage to a handful of beautiful countries including Canada, England, Spain, France, Italy, and Greece. My family is originally from Mexico, too, and I love embracing my roots. I travel to our hometown near Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico about three times a year, and wouldn't trade that for the world. In addition to traveling internationally, the state of Washington holds a place near and dear to my heart.
I enjoy photography, writing, and engaging in thought-provoking conversations with people.
