Cecilia was a true explorer visiting Nicaragua and Costa Rica on her own, never afraid. She also explored other cultures through reading about them. She so enjoyed journaling and reading, especially the Harry Potter books, her dad made sure that she had the first editions of each book that was published. She loved music and would travel the country following different music festivals.
