A glimpse into the incredible places that make up our planet
Time for the Laura Arango biography.
My name is Laura Arango. I was born in Bogotá, Colombia on July 28, 1993. I went to a private catholic school there, but barely remember any of my life in Colombia because I was so young. I lived there until I was 7 years old when my mother and I moved to the United States. I grew up in Boca Raton, Florida in the city that my grandparents and many of my aunts and uncles lived. My life in Boca Raton was surrounded by family which allowed me to continue practicing my spanish and is the reason I am still fluent today. I started second grade at Del Prado Elementary School where I made my first American friends and participated in an ESOL class (which teaches English to non-native students). I quickly learned the difference between being “by the door” and “in the door” and I think after that I never really had problems with English again. My middle school and high school years were full of learning and awkward stages much like everyone else. I became involved in musical theater in high school since I always loved music and figured I could give acting a try. I was one of the lead roles in Spanish River High School’s productions of Fiddler on the Roof (Tzeitel, for those of you that know the show), and my senior year was Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls. Theater took over my life for those four years but somehow I managed to balance that with several AP classes. I graduated high school in 2011 and moved on to bigger and better things like the Gator Nation. I am currently a third year telecommunications and political science double major at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. I am also a french minor and am looking forward to studying abroad in Paris for the Fall of 2014. I am also currently studying for the LSAT since I hope to start law school in the Fall of 2015 and pursue my dreams of becoming a lawyer.
Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into the life of Laura Arango!
