I express myself best through writing. INFJ & Virgo. Introverted & kind of awkward. Empowered. Altruistic. Advocate. I have Thoracic Endometriosis, which will require multiple surgeries a year, but through lots of research I found the best specialist in the world, Camran Nezhat in Palo Alto. He has relieved me of misery I’ve experienced since my teenage years. I came from a very physical, sexual, & mentally abusive childhood, so I am very much a mental health activist. I live a somewhat off the grid sustainable & minimalistic lifestyle. Proud vegan! Can’t be a non-vegan environmentalist & I could talk for hours about why lol. I write articles, poetry, play piano, read, practice yin yoga, & hike with my dog when my body let’s me. I study Integrative Healing Arts, Justice Studies, & Advocacy. I am heading to law school in three years to get my LL.M Master of Law in International & US Human Rights and aim to work with the refugee population.
