My self-summary
My life is wonderful and I'd love to find the right person to share it with. I'm romantic and thoughtful. I'm not lacking in suitors I'm just not currently enthralled by the options that have presented themselves in everyday life, so I thought I'd increase my odds.

I go out of my way to help people. I'm the person that offers my arm to blind people, helps elderly people down stairs or across the street, I hug people who are crying in public (if the situation is safe). Overall my big heart leads me and I'm thankful for that gift.
What I’m doing with my life
Changing lives for the better daily. I work as a School Nurse at a high school that serves pregnant and parenting teens. I wake up excited to go to work everyday (even if I'm forced to wake up a bit earlier than I'd like). With all honesty I can say that I would be happy to retire from my current job, and I know just how lucky I am to be able to make such a statement.

I've been involved in creating and organizing positive actions to draw attention to inequality and injustice. The most recent of which involved singing songs for social justice with a group of vocalists while riding the peace train (otherwise known as the BART train). It was a really powerful event honoring the lives lost in South Carolina.

I'm also planning trips around the world. One perk of my job is that I get 2 1/2 months off every summer. I spent the summer in Brazil and fell in love with Rio de Janeiro, the rest of the country was pretty great as well. Winter in Europe etc.
I’m really good at
Showing up when people need me and showing empathy and compassion for people when they need it.

On a superficial level I have great rhythm I love to dance, and sing. I enjoy cooking for my loved ones and have received many compliments. I'm also quite fashionable.

I'm also a really good advocate and try to be the best ally that I can be. I'm politically active and an outspoken ally for all underrepresented and oppressed people. I work to constantly examine and evolve my world view. Because my family is multicultural and multiethnic these are very personal and important issues and I use my privilege as a white woman to address them. I'm an intersectional feminist and very active with the following movements #BlackLivesMatter #NoDAPL #LGBTQQIA.

Some of my favorite books are Jitterbug Perfume, The Mists of Avalon, I Put a Spell on You (the Nina Simone autobiography), Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Written by Herself (which should be required reading in HS or college at the very least), Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers, World War Z, The Lorax, etc.

I like real food, grown from the earth, not produced in a lab. Ethnic cuisine from all over the world, preferably spicy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Currently I spend a lot of time thinking about how to protect our Muslim community, our immigrants and refugees. I work with wonderful young women who are immigrants and refugees and I feel fiercely protective of them and their babies. I'm sickened by the white supremacy that has been emboldened by this nonsensical mess of an "election" and the blatant bigotry that is spewing out of the White House. I worry about our youth normalizing this nightmare and internalizing it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think shopping for a significant other on this here internet is strange, but am still intrigued. And hopeful? Go figure.
You should message me if
You know how to dance and want to go dancing with me. I love a good lead or someone who just wants to have fun on the dance floor.
The two of us
