My name is Erika, it rhymes with America, and I love singing patriotic songs. I hail from the land of Texas, and yes I am one of the proud ones who loves BBQ, George Strait, and cowboy boots. I went to school at Texas State University- San Marcos (Go Bobcats!) where I majored in Political Science and minored in International Studies. My goal for this year is to read 25 books, memorize a rap song, learn how to play the guitar, and grow my own vegetables (one day I want to grow my own avocado tree). My favorite things to do in a new city are explore coffee shops, libraries, and Churches. I enjoy having deep conversations, laughing until my stomach hurts, and cooking for people.
