Danielle Baker, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
My name is Danielle Baker. I am 24 years old, Virginia raised, California born, with a background in child care, English education and business management, and member of the International Association of Professional Writer's and Editors guild. World issues, relationships and humanities became my focus and as I developed a love for reading and writing in school, I centered my energy on attaining knowledge through self love, meditation and daily practice. I excelled academically and online with multiple websites and platforms as a poet, writer, and scholar, winning awards, participating in writings clubs all over America and my school's literary magazines with personal poetry about life and love during adolescence. I believe in the power of good deeds, volunteering and hold a deep passion for life, understanding human perspective and building self confidence as the foundation for our world's future with writing and language influences from American classics, YA, manga to contemporary American and international lit. I have been blessed to meet and work with successful authors, poet laureates and creators everywhere from music, video games, and television online and in person. I hope to build a self aware, progressive and positive community of lit lovers and future world changers.

Cassandra Reveles, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Hi y'all, I'm Cassandra Reveles, a Senior at CSU Chico. I love kids and I'm pursing a career in Liberal Studies (YAY for teachers) with a minor in Spanish. I plan on enrolling to the bilingual teaching credential. In my free time I LOVE to watch movies, anywhere from comedy to thrillers, just not anything scary. I also enjoy a good beach day, and hiking although I don't do it often as I'd like. I would say I'm a pretty cool, energetic, and very friendly person.
