About Rubio:

I have been writing since about the fourth grade. While other kids would be outside playing, I'd be inside typing away. Writing affects me as a person and definitely how I feel. I even attend school for writing.

Rubio's Favorite Personal Quote:

“Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.”Mark Twain
I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.
-Shel Silverstein
