My self summary:
Well,..where do I start?
My past: . After being on DVC's speech and debate team for 3 years and being a critical thinking skills course instructor at Oakland street academy high school for a few months I have a history with public speaking and politics. I enjoyed traveling around California to different universities and kicking a-...I mean competing. However, I began to take more of an interest in evolution, history, and cultural studies and now here I am majoring in biological anthropology.
My personality: I'm quite a bit of a nerd. I'm also a very quirky and imaginative person with a lot of unique perspectives to offer. I'm also a very introverted and laid back person and often spend my time reading cracked.com, history, psychology, philosophy, or social science books . I'm currently reading Guns,Germs, and Steel. I'm also into video games and spend time with other video game nerds. Thus far my favorite are mass effect (1,2, and 3),dragon age, star wars old republic, and resident evil 6. I do have a playful side. I love making jokes and playing a prank or two on friends from time to time. I'm generally a very level headed person and enjoy sharing my thoughts and ideas about all sorts of things from why superman isn't necessarily the good guy people think he is to how morals and values develop in various cultures and how it relates to the method that culture uses to cultivate and preserve their resources.
What I'm doing with my life:
I'm currently a student at Diablo Valley College and on my way out the door into the warm welcoming arms of CSUEB, with the intention of working towards my bachelors degree in biological anthropology.. for now. However, my main goal is to earn my PhD and work in the field of archeology while working as a physical anthropology professor or simply working in the human biology department would suffice. So far, in my spare time I'm studying to prove my belief that our brains are not only still evolving but getting smaller.
Aside from my academic life I'm a facilitator of a peer support group referred to as "Ethos and Academic Pluralism",for high school graduates and college students who have been diagnosed with aspergers syndrome at a young age as I was. It's an interesting experience since we were all pretty much raised in aspergers full inclusion programs together. It's almost like working with siblings as opposed to group members.
I'm really good at:
writing prose and poetry
