About Me

I moved to Seattle

I am a Masters student at Harvard Graduate School of Education (so we could talk up a storm about education... or not) and live on campus. I am inquisitive and love to learn new things. I am usually calm, non-argumentative, and in my own ways quiet yet bold. I love art, history, languages, being engulfed in a new culture/society. I like and am really good with sports (volleyball, basketball, swimming, ultimate frisbee, frisbee golf), but on the otherhand, I can be maladroit at times and not the best dance partner. I love meeting and getting to know people and enjoy one-to-one conversations.

I was lucky enough to study abroad in the south of France for one year. And the experience opened my eyes. It has changed the way I think, live, make decisions in my life and I am forever grateful for this.
