Hello there! My name is Richelle Villabona. I am a sophomore at Southern Connecticut State University, and I am majoring in Early Childhood Education, as well as Interdisciplinary. My second major consists of a Psychology minor and the other is self-designed, and let's just say it is "interpreting cultures with a focus in Spanish, while teaching". (A mouthful. I know)

I'm merely a body filled to the brim with love, just looking for the people and things that make me feel alive. And with every moment, I am thankful.

For Learning Event 9 (#LE9), I have compiled all my Walk my World posts and linked my twitter.

Dear World, I am Me 

This picture of me is one of my favorites.  It was taken at my university to share social justice.  The word's written on my arms are something that I have carried with me for long time.

Where Did You Come From Lady (PYT) 

My family is an influential part of my life.  There is not a time that I remember my life before them.  Yes, I was born into the family, but my friends and our family friends, were always just with us from the start.  We've grown together and pushed each other to be stronger and for that I am greatful.

"How I Got To Who I Am"

I mentioned my family, my school, and travels in this video.  As I mentioned previously, family is always going to be number one in my heart.  Travelling is, definitely, a priviledge that I never want to take for granted.  It feeds my soul and mind about different people and their cultures, traditions, and perspectives.  I am where I am today, because of my education and pushing through every step of the way.

Turning Points 5

In this video, I talked about the turning points in my life.  They have not been easy.  I continue to struggle with some of these things in the video, but I am not going down without a fight.  My support system drives me to do better and be better, so thank you all for that.

"Come What May"

Ahh.. my future.  I do hope that things do go as planned, but like I said, if there are new opportunities and adventures before my 'declaration' happens that's fine, too.  I'm always up for the challenge and adventure, and as long as I bring myself pack on my path, I'll be golden.

Thanks for hanging out with me and getting to know a little bit more about me!

Video Diary Series

1 min read

For learning events 4, 5, and 8, I thought the best way to share my story is by talking to you one on one.  I have created a video diary series that shares with you about where I come from, what I have done, and hopefully, be doing in the future.  I hope that you enjoy them!
