I was born in Chile South America. Having the Pacific Ocean on one side and the famous Andes Mountains on the other, my life was adventurous. However, though the beauty of nature surrounded me, turmoil traumatized much of my young life.
In 1973 September 11, Santiago where we lived was taken over by a coup d’état.
In 1976, we migrated to Canada as refugees.
Upon landing in Canada, I had high hopes and dreams that as a family we had been given a second chance to start a new life.
Within two years from arriving into Canada, at the tender age of 14 years old, with hardly a word of English and frightened to death I found myself living in the cold streets of Edmonton.
In a near death experience, I saw Satan...his hands like claws began digging, tearing and pulling at my soul, ready to take me to HELL! My life was changed forever!
