About Me


I'm in Europe for a Semester Abroad. My University allowed me to generate my own research project and execute my research in Europe in a country of my choosing. For my project, I am studying Czech Literature, traveling through the Czech Republic.


Currently I am studying at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, aiming to obtain a degree in Broad-Area English Education (6-12 grades) and Communicative Disorders (non-Certified).

I am an avid reader, occasional writer, a Past Honored Queen of Job's Daughters International Bethel #53, St. Paul Park, MN, I adore Legos, creative toys, and theater. I am very shy at first but become talkative once I know you. I actually enjoy long talks (about nothing or everything). I collect pins and sew, as well as make trinkets/jewelry. I like laughing, smiling and hugs, and my sense of humor borders on the highly sarcastic.


I believe in Angels, Wishes, Mother Earth & Father Time, Destiny & Free Choice, Karma & Taoism, Coffee and Optimism.

I think we're only here on this earth for a fraction of a second in the grand scheme of things. Our lives will not make an impact on the grand scheme unless we make them have an impact. However, to one person you may be the world, and we cannot neglect or forget that.

It was said that those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it, but those who live in the past will only live in the past and miss out on the present.
