Then called Cat/Katt for the origin of her name XZanthia, XZanthia attended Pine View Middle School then Land O Lakes High School continuously through the summers to catch up with the other students of her age on the education that she missed while traveling with her mother.
Because of her life experiences and choices XZanthia had never felt as a child. She always reflected as a 27 year old since age 5. This age still holds true in her internally even though she is in her mid 30s.
Feeling isolated from her peers in mentality as well as living at a Nudist Resort did not call for a lot of friend sleep overs. XZanthia retreated into an internal world and studies of science, history and theology. A blooming artist, many of her peers embraced her talents which increased her popularity and acceptance.
Continuing with her studies in Collage both enrolled and as a viewer sitting in on classes in collages that she was not enrolled in, her desire for knowledge grew. Unsure of what she wanted to learn, She continued to change her major until she dropped out of Collage in 2001 to join the rock band “The Impotent Sea Snakes.”
XZanthia traveled around the USA and world as a fire performer / stilt walker and back up vocalist intensely till 2004 in Important Sea Snakes.
During this time, starting in 1999, XZanthia started Florida Modeling Network, a group of models and photographers that gathers to build their portfolios. This became XZanthia’s income aside of a few other jobs in retail.
