Hey everyone! My name is Andrew, and I just graduated from Dickinson College with a degree in history. I worked for City Year: Washington DC, an education forcued non-profit that also does a lot of large scale service projects in the community, which is part of my job to plan. I just returned about a month or so ago from Kenya, where I was taking part in a two month long social entrepreneurship institute in a rural village. My interest in the field began after studying abroad for five months in Cameroon, Africa, which I consider, thus far, the defining moment of my life. I'm interested in a wide variety of things, and I appreciate a woman who can both shoot the shit and joke around, while also having the capacity to have intellectual conversations as well. I'm a big fan of the outdoors, as well as any chance I get to go out dancing (my friends say I have happy feet, and I'm inclined to agree haha). I am a self-proclaimed feminist, and have a great interest in a broad range of social and humanitarian issues. I'm a pretty easy going guy, and am always interested in meeting new people, so feel free to message me. I'd love to hear from you! =)
