En el Barrio

Tell us about yourself. My name is Cierra Creer. I got into modeling when I was 16, but I’m going to school because education has always been the most important thing. Right now, I’m studying Communications and Spanish, with a minor in PR, at Arizona State University. However, I’m still very passionate about modeling and trying to find a way to integrate the two.   What is your passion? There aren’t many things that I’m super passionate about, but if I had to pick one it’d definitely be music. I’ve always grown up listening to so many different artists and my love for finding new music hasn’t stopped. At the moment, I’d say I’m most passionate about my journey of self-discovery. I’m just an 18 year-old…

The Urgency of Playfulness

“But if you observe children who are two or three years old, if you see how they behave, they are playing all the time. You see them laughing all the time. Their imagination is so powerful, and the way dream is an adventure of exploration. When something is wrong they react and defend themselves, but then they just let go and turn their attention to the moment again, to play again, to explore and have fun again. They are living in the moment. They are not ashamed of the past; they are not worried about the future…
