Name:Leiza McArter
Birthdate:Apr 8
Location:Texas, United States of America
Filipino. Shy. Loner. Cool. Socialist. Contradiction. Listener. Singer. Writer. Think God. Optimistic. Thinker. Cheerful. Married. Loved. Quiet. Loud. Laughter. Tears.

Those are basically the summary of me. Here’s a more in-depth look of me:

My name is Leiza (pronounced like Liza Minelli). My full first name on my birth certificate is Leiza Katrina. I don’t use Katrina much, and most of my former professors were the only ones using that name (they can’t pronounce Leiza very well). I was told that Leiza was a combination of both my paternal and maternal grandmothers. Katrina was a name my parents liked when they first heard it in Moscow, Russia.

I was born April 8th, 1975. I’m the youngest of 5 (1 brother and 3 other sisters). I’m a Filipino. I am married to a wonderful man, Lucien. He comes from an Irish/American Indian background. We have two lovely daughters whom we named Leiza Danielle (yes, Leiza Jr.!) and Lauren Michelle. We live in Irving, Texas.

I have a musically-inclined family. My dad is an opera singer – a tenor. My mom is a coloratura soprano. I have relatives that play the violin, piano, flute, among others. My siblings used to be part of an international children’s choir. I myself play the piano, guitar, drums, and some wind instruments. I also sing, which is more my genre. I used to sing in an all-Filipino ethnic rock alternative band called isLa. I was also part of a Filipino culture group called Filipino Folk Arts Theatre, Inc.

I always like to say that I am a simple girl with simple tastes. I don’t like frills. I’m not into makeup, I rarely use it and only for certain occasions. I’m lazy, and I’m not afraid to admit it. I love food, almost anything I can eat. I love computers, and web design. I’m fortunate enough to be working in a computer-related environment. I love to write. I’m moody. I’m a stickler for typos (if you see anything here let me know, lol).

Recently, I’ve been playing RPG online games. It’s fun and it gives you inspiration to write imaginative articles. I play them when I can spare the time. The main game I play is Lord of the Rings Online, but I will sometimes go back to 2D Games when I am in the mood.
