transcriptionist or at a nonprofit. As noted above, my identity as
a disabled person is very important to me. I am interested in
getting a PhD in Sociology or another social scientific discipline.

drawing, being a student, being indecisive, being generally

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
