About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet as many people as possible and have fun in one of the best cities in this world.

ABOUT ME

I'm a social, fun, and chill girl who is currently taking a gap year between undergraduate studies and dental school, which I am attending Fall 2014. Living in San Francisco has provided me with endless opportunities to experience everything from amazing nightlife and restaurants to trips to wine country, the woods, and the beach. Since I will be starting school in a few months, I really want to take advantage of all that this city has to offer while I have the time. I absolutely love meeting new people, so if you're interested in joining me while I explore this grand city called San Francisco, please don't hesitate to shoot me a message.

PHILOSOPHY

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Running my first half marathon has probably been one of the best experiences of my life. My legs became numb by mile 8 as I told myself that all I wanted to do was drop to the floor...but I kept going and I finished in an hour and fifty minutes. I encourage everyone to run a half or whole marathon at some point in your life, even if you're not a runner. There is no better satisfaction than crossing that finish line and reflecting on what you accomplished.

Teach, Learn, Share

There are so many things I could learn about...send the knowledge my way!
