Laura Montano


        “Probably lunch time…I got to hangout with my friends and Mr. Bayer and sometimes with my boyfriend. I got to be with people I really liked. ” Laura Montano. Colombian. Going to Valencia, then transferring to UCF. Sagittarius, and mostly in the way that she’s very honest. She doesn’t see any point in lying, rather preferring to tell the full truth. And she also prefers to fully love people than to be halfway with them. She’s a high-energy lover, an extraordinary, vibrant person who believes that you should just do anything “from the heart and with good intention.” Love always wins “at the end” for her. And so, Laura’s the type that tries to see the good in people and to put good out into the world. She tries not to be so judgemental, realizing that understanding people is so much more important than deciding if you like them or not. Nonetheless, as a girl who can be messy, often late to things, and insensitive at times, Laura wants to work on becoming more disciplined and organized in life. And in terms of her future, she’ll work to become a novelist. She’ll be writing books that are dramas or thrillers with some hint of romance (as she can be a “softy”) as it has all always been a suppressed dream of hers since middle school. Laura knows now that she can do it. And with that, she knows that she’ll also be living in the lively atmosphere of the city, maybe being a foster mom as the idea of having biological kids freaks her out and perhaps having a partner (even though it’s not a “necessity”). She’ll have a dog and will possibly still be into doodling anything that comes to her mind and will possibly still be into one of the books that she appreciates the most: “Sleepwalking” by Meg Wolitzer. Charter support team: Mr. Bayer, Racquel, Lissette, Nicholas M., Emily N., Vanessa R. Favorite movies: Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind & Superbad. Favorite show: That 70’s Show. Favorite artist (at the moment): Current Joys. Advice for charter underclassmen: “Take care of yourself before you try to take care of everybody else.”
