Visit Ventura’s Hidden Gem the Ventura Botanical Gardens

As students we spend most of our time either stressing out about homework or procrastinating to do our homework (I am guilty of this). However, sometimes all we need is a break, a moment of peace and nature to recharge our batteries.

We happen to live in one of the most beautiful places in Southern California, but we hardly take advantage of it. We have a beautiful spot in our very own backyard, it’s called the Ventura Botanical Gardens and if you haven’t visited already it’s time you do. Would you like to see what it’s like to spend a Sunday afternoon there? Click the video below and watch as I take you guys on a quick tour of the place.

Born and raised in Southern California, Carolina Bonilla has always had a love for her home, Ventura County. In 2017, she was given the opportunity to run the social media accounts for a small business in Downtown Ventura for 3 years with no prior experience. She really enjoyed it and became interested in marketing and photography. After the pandemic forced her to reevaluate her life, she decided to return to school again to learn more about digital marketing and pursue it as a full-time career.

In 2021 she returned to Ventura College to obtain her Associate's Degree in Social Media Marketing which she will complete in Spring of 2022. Her goal after graduation is to start her own social media marketing agency. Carolina wants to support local small businesses and give back to the community by helping make social media marketing accessible to everyone, including small businesses owned by those of ethnic minorities and older business owners who have had a difficult time keeping up with technology and social media.
