Upon graduating high school, she continued her education eventually ending up in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico where she began pursuing her career as a veterinarian. Swiftly realizing that her passion for music was greater than her educational drive, she decided to pursue music full-time. A choice she later classified as destiny.
