My name is Mauri Maldonado, I am the oldest of five. I am 24 years old. About six years ago my whole family moved to Winchester Virginia. I decided not to move with them because I wanted to finish my education and the only way for me to do that was to stay in California. At that time I did not realize that life as a grown up would be so hard. I had to take care of myself. I started working for Whole Foods Market which was one of the best things that has happened to me. It has giving me many opportunities to grow as a person and as a professional. I am now a Customer Service Supervisor soon to be Assistant Customer Service Team Leader. It is a good paying job, but besides that it has helped me grow as a professional. I hope to get my Bachelors Degree in Business Operations and one day open my business. As far as my family goes I miss them tremendously. I travel to Virginia every summer. Since they moved to Virginia everything has changed. For one I now have a little nephew his name is Damian and another on the way. I feel that all the things that i have been through have made me who I am. I love to collect sneakers and I love Music.
