Author Vanessa LatimerHola amigos. I was born in raised in the state that most know for one main reason – potatoes. Yes, I am from Idaho. No, I do not grow potatoes – although I do love to eat them. Maybe I was feeling a little overcrowded in the raving state of Idaho when I decided to go to college at the University of Wyoming. (Go Pokes!) I played volleyball for the University and grew to love the school, the state, and the friendly, down to earth nature of the people. I graduated with a double major in Spanish and Business Management, and a minor in International Relations. Read more »
