Sandra Huerta and her family moved to Boulder from Huaraz, Peru, six years ago, after waiting about seven years to obtain residency papers. She describes many things she loves about Peru, but says that Boulder feels like her home now. Not only does it have many similarities to her hometown in Peru, she also particularly enjoys the mountain landscape in Colorado, the safe and friendly feel of Boulder and the emphasis on a healthy lifestyle. She has made many friends in Boulder, with Americans and with other people who have moved here from all over the world, and she is enjoying teaching Spanish and building a business doing clothing alterations. She hopes at some point to be able to continue the nursing career she pursued in Peru.
