Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Brazil, spent most of my life in Denton, got my BA on the
West coast, my MA on the East coast, and now I'm returning to
Denton to get my Psyc PhD at UNT! I love my field and talking about
it, or talking about research in the other social sciences. I love
to laugh and have long conversations over a cup of coffee or
something. I also like to play instruments/jam... cello is my
all-time favorite instrument!
In my spare time, I enjoy making pottery, watching movies, and
going on night walks. I can't say whether I'm shy or outgoing; that
depends on whom I'm around. I like to be expressive and my sense of
humor can be kinda vulgar/gross sometimes.
I've got a wish list for my dream guy: first of all, I don't want
to date someone who's a pessimist and dislikes people. I love human
beings, and I want a relationship with someone who isn't
judgmental. Also, pro-choice is something which is VERY important
to me, and it's pretty much a dealbreaker if you're against it.
Finally, I tend to lean towards the progressive side of the
political spectrum; those values mean a lot to me :)
apart from that, I want to get to know you in person and see if we
hit it off.
Oh, another big thing about me is that I live by relativism, and I
try to bring it into my friendships and romantic relationships as
much as possible. That is, I tend to set aside the idea that
there's an "objective truth" that exists, and I prefer the notion
of truth being negotiated, agreed upon, and relative. When conflict
comes up, instead of asserting that one's own perspective is
"correct," or "true," I'm really big on acknowledging the validity
of other people's perspective (as hard as that can be
...but yeah, if you wanna know more, just message me!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I want to become a therapist. This decision was motivated in part
by my desire to reduce human suffering. I just feel like we're all
in this together, and I want to do my part. I want to leave the
world in a better state than it was when I entered it-- like they
say, we aren't inheriting the Earth from our parents, but borrowing
it from our children.
Before moving to New York, I spent two years living at home
gathering experience to prepare me for grad school. One of the
things I did was volunteer for a nonprofit agency for survivors of
abuse as an emergency response advocate for people who were just
raped. Basically, I'd be sitting around at home doing my thing, and
suddenly, the crisis line operator from the agency would call my
cell to dispatch me to one of 3 hospitals in the area to be with
the survivor. The survivor would go to the hospital to get a
special kind of physical done on them to make sure they were okay.
My job was to tell the survivor about local resources and just sort
of be there for them and listen to whatever it is they felt like
...I was involved with the agency in this program for almost two
years. It definitely had a major impact on shaping who I am today
and is probably the most empowering experience I've had in my life
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
