My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please read to the end. Otherwise, messaging me is probably a waste of both of our time. I don't say that to be rude or arrogant. I'm just tired of getting messages from people who clearly didn't read anything about me and are just responding to my picture.

I've never thought of myself as an online-dating kind of girl, but here I am giving it a try. Am I skeptical? Yes. But hey, life is full of surprises.

I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal... I have many leather-bound books, and my apartment smells of rich mahogany. Impressive (or not so impressive) book collection aside, I'm a world traveler and absolutely love visiting new places and experiencing new cultures. I've visited 28 countries and half of the US states. I'm not really sure where to call home. I grew up in Nigeria and Southern California, lived in Philly for 7 years, just spent a year in England, and now am back in the US while I figure out what I'm doing with my life.

A few of my favorite things include: adventures, wearing cowboy boots, picnics in the park, road trips, random dance parties, anything miniature, and laughing out loud. I mean, seriously, are there many things better in life than laughing? (Bacon is a close rival). I also enjoy art, music, being grammatically correct, cooking/baking, white Converses, intellectual conversations, antique stores, Trader Joe's sweet potato chips, and witty independent films.

I strive for authenticity and find honesty-the real, vulnerable kind-to be refreshing. I love people and am all about investing in lasting relationships and doing life with people who share similar faith, goals, and lifestyle. My Christian faith is also a significant part of my life and fuels my passion for people and for social justice. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but I constantly strive to be the best version of myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it to the fullest. I recently finished a master's program in Globalization and Development from the University of Manchester and moved back from England. I'm staying with my family in Michigan and am doing some communications consulting while I look for a more permanent job (anywhere in the world). Before grad school, I worked at a philanthropic consulting firm managing a range of projects. I'm interested in international development and passionate about social issues like human trafficking and poverty and plan to incorporate them into my long-term career.

On the weekends, I'm a fashion consultant among family and friends and a thrift store connoisseur. Aside from work and thrifting, I spend a lot of time thinking about where I'd like to travel and live and planning adventures.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Perhaps a more appropriate title would be "I like to think I'm good at":
Listening and offering advice
Finding random gems at thrift stores
Cooking creative dishes
Being sarcastic
Making people laugh

I'm terrible at:
Taking my own advice
Using chopsticks
Parallel parking
Pull ups

If I were noticing me for the first time, I'd be drawn to my eyes, bold personality, and colorful clothes.

I'm going for seven:
God's grace

My Camera
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

The people I care about
The depressing nature of the world in which we live
The supply chain used for the products I purchase
What delicious concoction to make for dinner
My next art project
Ethical fashion
Conspiracy theories
Why I get all kinds of messages to the tune of 'Hi, I think you're cute" with absolutely zero reference to anything of substance that I have included in my profile. It's super obnoxious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing happy hour with friends, having people over for dinner, blues/swing dancing, or watching a movie at home with a glass of wine and carton of ice cream.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sweat a lot when I work out. I also buy myself flowers on a regular basis. Oh, and I plan to blog about my online dating experience.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're awesome; you have an active relationship with Jesus Christ (seriously, this is a non-negotiable for me); you have a passport that isn't empty; you like wearing ugly sweaters in public; you're going to send me more than a four-word message; and you think there's more to life than being really, really, really ridiculously good looking.

I'll add this: Michigan has never been home for me, so I don't know many people out here. I also don't know how long I'll be here- possibly just a few more months. What I'm hoping for is someone cool to do some social activities with on a friendship level. If something else develops, great, but that's not my #1 priority since so much in my life is up in the air at the moment. If you're ok with that, then shoot me a message.
