April was brought up in a Puerto Rico. As the years passed, April had a very energetic upbringing. He, along with his two older brothers, ran amok. She could spend countless hours daydreaming of Taíno Princesses and lustrous colors shaded in the tropical rainforest of his backyard. These early years were filled to the brim with lessons in the arts, ballet, jazz, theatre. In short, an education that turned out to be the groundwork for her grand project.
In 2007, April joined the most renowned art college in the Caribbean, "La Escuela de Artes Plasticas” which gave her the tools to question the world he knew. During this time she won several prizes including an all-expense-paid trip to Italy and the annual gallery exhibition, making her the first freshmen to ever win such prize.
On the 11th of October 2016 (National Coming Out Day), April came out as genderqueer, saying "Sometimes I am, well, a straight woman."
