Traveling back home from home

This summer, I was able to go back home from home, compete in a flute competition, meet new friends, and visit family!

It has always been hard for me to decide which place to call “home." Even though I am considered an international student here at WMU, I have been living in the United States for nine years of my life. This is due to the fact that I moved from Peru when I was 12-years-old. As a musician, I could not be more excited to have had the opportunity to train musically in the US and take what I have learned back to where I was born.

My fiancé, Gabe, and I were both able to take a week off work and embark on a beautiful trip back home to Peru for Festival Internacional de Flautistas. Technically, our physical home is here in Michigan, but who can complain about being able to call 2 places home?!
