Who I am at my core
Over-analyzer. Big dreamer. Loud with the right crowd and quiet with the rest. Paper & pen journaler. MacBook & iPhone everything else. Jalen Rose agreed I should call myself the female version of him. I’m either laughing, sneezing, or whistling at any given moment. 90s baby raised on 70s soul. California bred, Texas fed. Grilled ham and cheese Stan. Advocate for pickles’ rights to be eaten. Book collector and an unusual emotional investment in fictional characters.
I dream of a world with no traffic, where Sprite Remix is resurrected (*update, this dream has come true), and people know the difference between “your” and “you’re”. But alas, I live in a world where there’s the 405 freeway, ginger-ale, and people who ignore that red squiggly line.
I am a young woman who enjoys a good burger, a good book, and a good beat. I write how I think and how I talk. Some people seem to love that about me. Thanks! Because I can’t turn it off. I am very much energy driven and observant. As much as people think that being an introvert is a trend, that’s really who I am. If you’re into personality types, I’m a blend of INFJ and ISFJ.
I’m someone who absolutely needs to feel like what I’m doing is meaningful work. All I want to do is write and teach, write and teach. I mean, sprinkle some other things in there too, like read, speak, create, etc. But when it comes down to it, my purpose is to relate to you. So I am constantly thinking of ways that I can connect with people where they are, and help them rise from there.
