My self-summary
I am originally from Washington, D.C. Hence, I am one of those rare native Washingtonians. I wrote rare because not many people are from the District of Columbia. People do live in D.C., not just nearby Maryland and Virginia. I went to college and graduate school in New York. I am especially interested in American politics, cities, and diversity. I used to work/intern for the U.S. Congress on Capitol Hill.

In my free time, I help with community events (such as festivals), take photographs, watch movies, listen to music, write trivia questions about U.S. politics and other topics, go to museums, help immigrants, and do other activities. I also like to sing. I have sung in multiple languages, including English, Hebrew, Turkish, Greek, Arabic, Latin, German, Bulgarian, Japanese, and others. I have sung in multiple music groups at a variety of venues, including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in the District of Columbia. I enjoy meeting people. I also like traveling around the United States and the world. It is always wonderful to learn about different cultures.

In addition, I like to keep up with current events, especially about American politics.

I am doing work relating to politics/policy. I am in school for my second graduate degree.

Sometimes, people notice my blue eyes.

Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How to get people more interested in American politics (I think that the government could function better if Americans were more familiar with the U.S. government.)
- How to get a movie made
- Why experience sometimes is not valued much
- What will happen in the future
- Why people don't seem to care about certain rules
- Why people do/have certain things
