Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am very passionate about the work I do; I love to get out of the
house and into nature.
I am very open and people tend to feel comfortable around me--my
friends are always amazed at my ability to get perfect strangers to
open up to me.
I am both nerdy and a creative soul. Finding the balance between
those two sides of my personality is a lot of fun!
I love to travel. My research has allowed me to live in Germany,
Amsterdam, and Brazil.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a sociologist/ therapist with a specialization in gender,
sexualities, and identity politics.
Because of the type of work I do, I tend to have a lot of hands-on
hobbies. I spent the last year learning how to rebuild my old VW
bug--everything from the engine to sewing the interior.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning something new, photography, building something from
scratch, explaining extremely inappropriate topics in extremely
inappropriate situations (often part of my job!), working with
someone going through a difficult experience.
