I'm a joyful, kind-hearted, playful, and hard-working person. I try to live out the values of simplicity and a commitment to social justice. I've have lived and worked in various communities abroad, which have given me a deep value for community and influenced who I am today.
I try to celebrate each day and live in the present moment. I enjoy hikes, running and kayaking along the Charles River, game nights, and cooking dinner with friends. I can be silly while still reflective and thoughtful. I'm always up for dancing, and staying up late into the night talking to friends.
I try to live my life inspired by the quote, "We can do no great thing, only small things with great love," said by one amazing lady.
