My self-summary
What there is to know about me: I'm a living breathing specimen existing in this weird universe. Ok now on a less existential level- I currently run a community center for children in families living in Anaheim in an impoverished neighborhood in Anaheim California Providing services and resources for families who are disenfranchised or marginalized in some way is one of my truest passions. As human beings it is vital that we all receive opportunities that will propel forward in our in whatever trajectory our life takes. If we are not given these opportunities it is truly an injustice. This alone is a driving factor as to why I do what I do. My work is important to me- not solely because of what I do, but because of the encompassing philosophy with in which it follows.

On a lighter note: I'm silly, love to talk, talk, talk, sing, laugh, and if music comes on- you bet I'm going to dance. Some other things I enjoy: cooking- sure I'm not the greatest cook, but I can move around a kitchen okay. Plus it such a relaxing and soothing experience. I love listening to podcasts (podcasts and baths are one of my most favorite after-work activity). I also really enjoy exercising. I was really into running for a minute, but my knee decided to hate me. I still run, but it's not my main mode of exercise. I like weightlifting, cardio kickboxing, and recently tried bouldering. I'm thinking I might want to do it more often.
What I’m doing with my life
Being human.

Okay now really, I feel like I already answered that. I'm working for a non-profit and enjoying being a young person.
I’m really good at
Being present for other people.

Watching a movie, or out with friends.

You want to have a good time- and honestly the definition of that it is totally at your discretion. I however love seeing movies, doing physical activity, seeing a show, anything where we're doing something.
