I love to laugh. I'm passionate about social justice and advocating for equity systemically.
I'm a full time graduate student. I'm working in a summer fellowship focused on supporting local education systems and education reform.
I like to read, ride bikes, go on walks, hike, catch live music, explore new places, cook, and swim. I love to snorkel, travel, have a glass of wine and good conversation, booze dance, toss a frisbee, play racquetball, go on adventures. I live in a dichotomy between a daily rage at the injustice in society and having fun, enjoying life, and appreciating my privilege. I like to be light-hearted and shake a tail feather too. One of my favorite quotes captures the sentiment:
“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
I REALLY want to learn Spanish! I'm pretty down to earth. I like to make people laugh. I like to socialize. I'm passionate about advocating for social change and try to live my values and beliefs out loud. I can appreciate material things in life but that's not what's important to me.
