Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It is so difficult to capture someone's personality in writing! I
actually find self-summaries really challenging to write for that
reason, they usually end up coming off as hollow or too
professional (I write a pretty killer cover letter though,
I just graduated from Rhode Island College this past May with a BA
in English and two minors in Writing and Film. One of my favorite
things that I did while in school was an honors thesis that took
two years to complete and totaled around 52 pages once it was
finished. The paper was an analysis of gender performance in
Disney's beast fables and it is by far my greatest academic
achievement. I like to mention this because it is something that I
think is really unique about me and I find that it is usually a
good ice breaker (and I love to talk about it, so by all means -
I also co-founded a local sorority in 2009 with one of my life-long
best friends and have been an active participant in Greek life ever
since. I saw my organization through the national colonization
process last spring where we were officially recognized as a
chapter of National Panhellenic Council sorority, Alpha Sigma Tau.
I am really passionate about Greek life and all of the good that it
can do for both the community as well as each individual member. I
have watched women grow tremendously in their confidence and
leadership ability with every passing semester and I give my
sorority a lot of credit for the assertive, hyper-organized, "take
action" kinda gal I have become. I am still actively involved as
the Recruitment Advisor for my chapter, trying to spread the word
about the positive influence of Greek life and help my sisterhood
I love spending time with my family and friends and I try to live a
happy, simple life but that usually doesn't wok out too well
because I love to stay busy and have my hands in multiple projects
at once. I am currently working as an administrative assistant for
the United Way and I am obsessed with my job. I am also beginning
to look at graduate programs so I can travel and expand my
education - I am a Rhode Islander born and raised but I am not
interested in being trapped here forever!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working full-time with the United Way of RI during the week
and part-time at Babies R US on the weekends. I love working in the
non-profit world with United Way but I am hesitant to give up my
retail job and submerge myself fully in "the real world." Besides,
I love my coworkers at Babies and I've been there for a long time,
so for now it all works out. My main focus right now is on grad
school applications and recruiting for AST!
I am also going to be giving a presentation at the PCA/ACA
conference in Chicago this spring! I have never been to the windy
city so it'll be a fun experience!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I absolutely love dancing! I used to dance competitively and I miss
it all the time. Hopefully I will be taking classes again within
the next few weeks when my life settles down a bit! I'm best known
for my crazy organizational skills and time management issues (I am
I'm also pretty good at procrastination and wasting time watching
TV and playing on Pinterest, haha X] ( oh and I make those faces a
lot, I can't help it they are very expressive)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People always tell me I have a nice smile and that I dress well.
Overall I strive to be a happy, energetic person who people feel
like they can depend on and enjoy spending time with. I am
generally an open book and I try to be as transparent as possible
with how I feel or what I think about a situation - another
characteristic that my friends either love, hate, or love to hate.
On the one hand it shows that I am an honest, trustworthy
person...on the other hand it marks me as someone who can be a bit

I will seriously listen to just about anything. My radio tends to
live in the 92.3, 93.3, and 94.1 range for entertainment's sake
though. I have a serious soft spot for old school rock and rock
I am not a picky person, I've listed some of my favorite things but
really I'm open to all genres/styles.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm not sure this is a real thing, but I will answer it with the
six items I have become increasingly dependent on...
My silly answers:
-My Convertible Buggy
My serious answers:
-Loved ones (friends, family, and sisters)
Although I could probably cover all of those things if you would
just let me keep my iPad lol
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All the small and big ways I can make a difference in the world...
but mostly, how I can work every day to be the kind of person I
want my little sister to look up to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are my sister fun-nights :) but try to find me on a
Thursday and you would have the most luck at the piano bar (free
admission and half-price drinks, what beats that?!) Or out with
friends all dressed up and raising havoc on any Saturday night!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really not sure what I am looking to gain out of this "online
dating" experience. I am starting off just looking for interesting
people to talk to and become friends with. I really love the idea
of true, organic encounters that happen by surprise so I am still
something of a skeptic - but I am trying to be open minded and just
see where this takes me.
