I am a music-loving, social justice-oriented, feminist advocate. My
ideal day consists of doing volunteer work, followed by shopping
for records and thrifting with friends, capped off by an affordable
and delicious gluten-free meal.
I am energetic, compassionate, and an audiophile.
What I’m doing with my life
Social justice volunteer work- such as volunteer trips to New
Orleans, NYC, Philly, and the Pine Ridge reservation in South
Dakota; doing exec board stuff with the Feminist Student
Organization at my school; Interning at cool places like the 9:30
Club in DC; studying sociology and women and gender studies
full-time; working at the Women and Gender Studies Center on campus
part-time; hanging out with friends.
I’m really good at
talking; relating to people; generally getting along with others;
reading; knowing stuff about music.
The first things people usually notice about me
My curly hair. My glasses. The fact that I'm biracial. I'm told
often that I remind people of Hilary Banks from Fresh Prince.

The six things I could never do without
Music, friends, family, food, clothes, love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
social justice issues, the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
watching TV with my family or out with my friends.

social justice issues.
