Some words and phrases I would use to describe myself, or what I try to be, include: INFJ, open-minded, inquisitive, playful, organized, affectionate, creative, respectful, logical, outdoorsy, and overall a strange and intricate variety of paradoxes.
Working in development was amazing! I really enjoyed the purpose of the work, the challenges, and a lot of the people involved. Which is why I am chasing my dream of working full-time for a NGO/non-profit that respectfully gives disadvantaged individuals opportunities to build better lives.

Food: Italian food is probably my favorite (Bruschetta, Risotto, Gnocchi, Pesto, Frittata, mmm.). I also really enjoy certain types of Thai, Mexican, Chinese, and Indian foods. Throw in some fresh fruit, breakfast foods, any form of chocolate for dessert, and that pretty much covers all my favorites.

The little dreams that keep me motivated (traveling to Italy, going on a road trip along the coast, kayaking, adopting a dog, etc)
Why my love for dogs continues to grow as my faith in humanity slowly diminishes.
