ABOUT ME

If Julia de Burgos and Bob Marley moved to Cuba to reproduce, I would most likely be their offspring!
I'm tall, but not uber tall. I'm 5'9, which is pretty tall for womyn I guess. I could have modeled, but my hunger for food during 'wee' hours of the night strikes often. Moreover, I cannot say no to a meal!
Out of the many things I enjoy doing, I have to say strolling through the park is an absolute favorite; sitting in the park is pretty awesome as well and with a book in my hand I am complete...
Reading is something I cannot live without. I enjoy a diverse selection of literature. Preferably, authors who write in respects to the African diaspora, however, I am always accepting of what the world has to offer, so- with that being said- I can appreciate art, history, literature, or pretty much anything from around the globe!
Overall, I'm pretty chilled. I love learning and adore language. I also love to sleep (the laziness in me). I consider myself filled with a subtle curiosity. I'm always wondering and always questioning, but not in a creepy nosy way, more like a child who's aware of their limits. 'Question Mightily' is a motto I abide by and I'm always inclined to satisfy this curious appetite of mine...
Conversation is something I value. A good discussion is always acceptable and when they contain laughter they're my favorite. I also prefer silence at times and appreciate people I can be silent with.

PHILOSOPHY

" You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star" -Nietzsche

Interests

Always engaged in the political struggle for equal rights. Whether it be through art, conversation, social action, my writings, or academia. Justice and Equality are two ideas that mean more to me than most things, and I'd die for 'em.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One amazing thing I've done... is embedded in experiences from past travels. The placement of 'self' in a foreign land and to feel the assault of difference is a beautiful encounter... To learn from a foreign milieu and watch what you've believed- which you've held with great conviction- start to fade... The quest for new knowledge and the voyage in discovery... The journey in making mistakes and learning to love them, as you continue to experience the world's reproductive organ called 'life'... And finally [in the future] the nostalgia you feel when you are randomly grinning in the 'now' as your mind starts to reflect on those past discoveries... These are the moments that give life.
