My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well hey there, if you're profile surfing, welcome. I hope your stop over can be fun.

Little bit about me: I don't see the world as good guys and bad guys, just a bunch of people trying to do their best with what they got. Doesn't sound like a big woop but actually ends up being really important in the scheme of things.

Fairly self-aware (INFJ - if that means anything to you) and actively work on being the best version of myself. I have a lot of drive not just in my professional life but in my own development. Usually pretty helpful if the person I'm dating has a passion, if only for the empathy that creates for another person with a passion. EQ is a big deal. I think a pretty big defining part of whomever I spend time with is whether or not they are strong enough to be vulnerable.

Just an fyi, my name isn't Nina but you can't get the ñ in a screen name, so my non-ethnic brethren often launch right in and I figured I'd help you out.

Also fellas, probably not your girl if you have a shirtless picture or take an obscene amount of selfies. Do you. Just not the bait for this fishy, lot's of fishy's out there though, so go forth and flirt. Oh and the "Hey sexy" "Hi Baby" thing at the first go, also not a good starting ground. Just giving you the tips here. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Grew up poor, first in my fam to go to college, be a professional, etc.; had amazing people in my life, got out of the hood. Learned that out wasn't enough and proceeded to learn how to do happy. Forever tangling joyously and gratefully with the concept of thriving.

And since I'm guessing this question was asking me the career thing. Love growing small non-profits into industry contenders. It's my favorite way to change the world. Well, that and growing people who are contenders into being comfortable with being a contender. I love young people, most of my work focuses on helping them get better access and be better leaders.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Talking. Laughing. Cooking. Relaxing. Enjoying people. Being a nerd. Singing karaoke. Reading the emotional climate of a room. Being infinitely grateful for all my damn privilege and freedom. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I laugh pretty loud and love laughter. No really. I love, love, love, love laughter.

That and I currently have little blue streaks in my very curly short hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm definitely a creature of habit. So I like what I like and I delve often.

I do like me some good (and at times bad) tv. I crave specific episodes of The West Wing. The Women of Qumar, Noel, The Supremes, and Celestial Navigation are my favorite episodes (yes, it's that serious).

I have a soft spot for The Mindy Project. Yay for women of color actually being on TV and bless Shonda Rhimes and all the things that come from Shondaland.

Movies are good, but I find most tv writing can be much better with a greater diversity of characters. I'm a sucker for a comic book, sports, or sci fi movie. It's a terrible affliction really.

I absolutely love music. All genres - for the most part. I have a particular soft spot for RnB, Hip-Hop, Rock, Salsa and Bachata. (I guess I have many soft spots)

My favorite book is "Eleven Minutes" by Paulo Coelho. It's a fairytale about the intersection of your spirit, heart, and body told through the eyes of a prostitute. Ta-nehisi Coates is one of my favorite writers. I'm a reformed journalism student. I'm sad that journalism is what it is and think magazine writing does a better job of creating a accurate snapshot of events.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family (my brother and cousins rock, growing up around a lot of dudes makes you a different girl)
My friends (I'm blessed to have really amazing people in my world - this is not an exaggeration, kind of mind blowingly great people)
My culture/history/family story (we carry it with us)
My Droid (more for the music on it, but gotta love having a mini computer)
My career
A good laugh

So I'm sneaking #7 here, I'm grateful for the existence of Big Sur. It's breathtaking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People and how they work. How blessed I am. What comes next. How to change the world. Why does bacon taste so good?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I love a good dinner party. I'm often having friends over for a meal, a drink, and a laugh. Nothing makes me happier than creating a warm/fun night. And now that I'm living in the land of eternal warmth and sunshine, I throw a mean backyard party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be a major navel gazer. I can lay in a park or on the beach and think and contemplate for marathon amounts of time. In fact, I just did that on a mountain top overlooking the ocean. Truly magical time on my own. I might be just a liiiiittle too happy with my independence but am genuinely working on it.
