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've modeled, but my hunger for food during 'wee' hours of the day strikes often- hence I cannot say no to a meal! I enjoy walking in the park. Sitting in the park is pretty awesome as well and with a book in 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. With that being said, I can appreciate art, history, literature, or pretty much anything from around the globe... Overall, I'm pretty chill. I love learning and adore language. I love proving validity in arguments (the nerd 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 it contains laughter they're my favorite. I also prefer silence at times and appreciate people I can be silent with.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One amazing thing I've done is embedded in a collective of past experience from my travels. The placement of 'self' in a foreign land and to feel the assault of difference is a beautiful encounter. To learn from a peculiar milieu and watch what you've held- with this great conviction- start to fade . The quest for new knowledge and the voyage in discovery. The journey of making mistakes and learning to love them; as you continue to experience the world's reproductive organ called 'life'... And finally, the nostalgia you get when randomly grinning in the now, when imagination is torn asunder by reality. These are the moments I live for...
