    The Basics

    A little Einstein Hair sometimes, and a quick knock-kneed shuffle in very boring clothing at times, and BOOM! You’ve got yourself a Cambia (Ha! So she says). No seriously, Cambia was born in Southwest Detroit to a mother that left New York in the summer of 1979.

There are very few of us that are so good at it we don't even need to try very hard. This is a very big misconception of the facts. It's is, indeed, hard work. It's hard for everyone.
