My name is Flavia. I'm from Lima, Peru (South America). I am a undergraduate student of civil engineering. I studied that at the Catholc University of Peru for 4 years. If i had stayed in PEru, I could have goten my degree at the end of 2005. However, you never know what is going to happen. I have been in the USA for almost 2 years. I did not intend to complete my studies here, but due to my father's work and a personal healthe prblem, I came here. I'm 26 years old. This may be unusual for an undergraduate student, but that is how it has turned out. Now, I am here trying to realize my goal, to get my degree. It is strange how a life can change so suddenly. You can make plans, but you will never know what life has prepare for you.
WELCOME to the CHANG DINASTY!!
Hi, maybe you should ask yourself why I'm using the word dragon, chang and dinasty in my blog. Well, the answer is simple, I have a chinese background. My great-grandfather was chinese. For that reason my second last name is Chang. In Peru we have two last names, the first is from your father and the second is from your mother.
I like the asian culture, maybe because it is my blood or maybe because I'm a crazy dragon. That animal is a symbol of force and power. Everybody need a source of power, and for me that source is the dragon.
Now, you are asking why phoenix. Well, what do you know about phoenix? It is a special bird that can die and then revive, but with more energy, with a new spirit and with a new soul. If you start to think about that and make a relation with our lives, you can figure out that each period that we pass in our lives is like one phoenix's life. When you tried to leave the past and start again, it is like to die and revive again. My way to see the new changes that we make in our lives is with this metaphor of the phoenix. Being a Phoenix and being a Dragon is the best combination.
