My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Walk as though you were kissing the Earth with your feet."

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

I try to live life with kindness, compassion, honesty, patience, and vulnerability. Having an open heart and an open mind has been a source of great joy and sometimes deep pain. I feel deeply, but also stumble upon beauty along the way.

When I visited Tibet as a youth, I had no idea that the country's spiritual, philosophical, and cultural traditions would soon become a core part of my life. Years later, I visited Japan to study Buddhist and Shinto art history, and found myself in England in 2009 at an international meditation retreat. Since then, I've graduated from UW with a degree in Comparative Religion and am now starting my third year in graduate school to become a social worker.

I love to chat about philosophy, spirituality, art, poetry, or just this odd journey of life... with a cup of tea.

Social work opened my eyes to the hardships many people experience in their lives every day. I admit I'm an idealist, but I'm passionate about creating a just, sustainable, healing, and peaceful world. I consider myself a LGBTQ ally, a feminist, and a champion of human rights.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm now beginning the final year of my Master's in Social Work (MSW). My focus is on mental health and the issues surrounding it. As a student, I do a lot of research and writing.

I enjoy meditation, seeing old friends, reading poetry, and visiting tea houses. I've been going to a Buddhist Temple for over 10 years now, and I'm starting to become more active in social justice, mainly through school for now.

I'm a strict vegetarian for ethical, spiritual, and ecological reasons. I love Thai food when I eat out, yakisoba, pho and Indian food. I aspire to be vegan... it's tough!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The best things in life aren't things... that aside:

1) Supportive friends and family
2) Love & compassion
3) Quiet and stillness
4) Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's books, teachings, and inspiration
5) My two cats, Emory & Sophie
6) My spiritual community
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Busing up to Seattle to see family or out to a nice vegetarian dinner. My Fridays tend to be very quiet; I'm not much of a partying or bar-hopping person.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a competitive radio-controlled car racer. It's my alter-ego (like Batman).

It's a little embarrassing, but I've been competing in this obscure hobby since I was 12. I raced til age 18 when college happened...

At age 24, I started to race again. I never thought I'd get back into the hobby, but I really enjoy it! It's very fast, very competitive, a ton of fun, but also surprisingly expensive and time-consuming. We race at Magnuson Park twice a month during the winter season. I race mostly in Tacoma during the summer.
