I would describe myself as athletic, artsy, dedicated to my career, a music fanatic, an undercover nerd, a traveller at heart, adventurous, LOVE to try new things, kind, outdoorsy, devoted, funny, and will pretty much laugh my way through life.
In saying all of the positive things I hope I am, I will admit, life, work- both present their respective challenges. I think it is how we deal with these challenges that makes us who we are, and defines our true character.
Now on to more fun stuff! I have been very lucky to travel all over the world, India, Africa, Europe, Australia, Thailand, and the list goes on. I mention the travelling only because my experiences abroad have had an enormous impact on who I am today. One of my favorite jaunts was living in France for a summer as a teenager, growing into my teenage legs in the cafes and discoteques in the small city of Tours, right outside of Paris. More recently, Africa has pulled me in. I stayed in Ghana and Tanzania for 2 months each, volunteering in pediatric hospitals and exploring the sights, smells, and sounds of a culture so far removed from my own. A perfect vacation to me could include anything from bumming around a beach to backpacking through Europe to going on a renegade Safari in the Serengheti.
So I'm giving this a go, against all of my reservations and hesitations...as I said before, I love to try new things!
