"We are perishing for want of wonder, not for want of wonders."
- G.K. Chesterton
I enjoy learning, reading, exploring, travelling, museums, music festivals, and raves. I studied abroad in Japan and lived with a host family. It was so cool to see the world through their perspective. I've also been to Italy and Croatia, and I'm excited to visit more countries in the future.
I live by the non-aggression principle: I believe people should be free to live out their own lives in whatever way they see fit as long as it doesn't harm others.
What I’m doing with my life
Working to create a better world through education and technology.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh and have fun; also economics and marketing,
although I still have a long way to go.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and sense of humor.
