About Me


Cira Tapia

I am from Bolivia, I speak Spanish and I migrated to this wonderful country more than two decades ago. I also have four wonderful children. I had a dream of completing my studies that I had left many years ago, and after three decades I am fulfilling this wonderful dream of getting my degree in Global Studies. I want to be an inspiration for other people who for different reasons had to leave their studies and drop out of school. Everything can be done if one decides to do it, and that is how I am achieving it. “Wanting is power” if you decide to make this decision and that is what I am doing.

My Profession:

My work goals after graduation are to work for an organization that especially helps immigrants from any part of the world. I love helping and being of service to others.

My Hobbies:

I love pastry, my passion is making cakes, I love seeing people happy! If you want to visit my page, it’s Cirezz Cakes!
