My self-summary
I need a tennis partner!!!

If I had to choose one word to describe me, I'd go with PASSION. Of all my interests, the biggest one is my friends and family, because no matter what else you have, life is empty without love. Beyond that, I love music (I play the piano and compose), I love acting (I was a theatre major), and I love playing tennis. Other interests include drawing, reading, good movies, good food, fitness, and just about anything to do with being outdoors. And travel! Also... I had time for some volunteering and such when I was in school, but I want to do more of that. I feel very lucky with all the opportunities I've had, and giving back to the world is very important to me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'll be starting grad school in August (2013) to earn my MSW (Master of Social Work). I'm interested in mental health counseling, especially in under-served communities, and working with social justice oriented organizations in the future. Currently I work in the service industry to pay the bills, and intern with a research project that studies PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).

The six things I could never do without
Family. Music. Physical activity. Sunlight on the trees. Laughter. Your mom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can leave the world better than I found it.

How do I find people to play tennis with me?
