I am originally from Brooklyn, NY. I moved to DC for work at a research and advocacy/public policy organization and grad school.
I am passionate about social justice, and I believe that effective public policy can help create a more equitable society, so... I'm a policy nerd. But a cute one, so, there's that.
I am very independent, open minded, funny, passionate and creative (and confident obviously.. ha!).
I love my life.
Somehow I manage to be shy and outgoing, super silly and incredibly goal-oriented, a poet and practical. I'm just a cornucopia of contradictions. And having way too much fun with this. lol.
I like people who are happy with who they are, who are funny, humble and confident. People who I can have a good conversation with, do new things with, and learn from. People who can take a joke! (Seriously, if you can't take a joke... get to steppin!)
And now I'd like to open it up for questions and comments...
I smile all the time... It's my way of sending joy into the universe.
I love all types of music. At the moment I'm into neo-soul and Fety Wap. Hahaha!
Books... (for the 5% of you who give a shit what books I like): Black Reconstruction in America - DuBois
The Shock Doctrine - Naomi Klein
How to improve myself.
Where the nearest cookie is.
"Her beauty cannot be measured with standards of a colonized mind." - Meshelle NdegeOcello
Also- I sometimes pretend that I can shoot hadoukens.
Especially if you're a happy person.
Fair warning: If you send a one-word message I'll probably delete it :-/
