About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see the world and live my life the way I've always dreamt I would. I don't want to just read about all the amazing places on Earth- I want to see them with my own eyes. I want to experience as much as I can because we only have one chance to do so.

ABOUT ME

Ummm... about myself- I'm an undergraduate student gearing up for my year abroad in Europe. I have never traveled to Europe or on my own so I'm excited but nervous as well! I'm an easy going person who is always up for anything fun. I can't wait to see as much as I can in the next 9 months and meet some amazing people!

PHILOSOPHY

Live, love, laugh is tattooed on my foot in french and that really sums up what I strive to do in life. I try to live my life as best I can by attempting to see the good in all situations. I try to love as if I haven't had my heart broken and I try to care for others in a way that I would want to be cared for. And finally laughing- love doing it as much as possible and why not? It's a great ab workout :)

Interests

Obviously traveling!, photography, long walks, smoking the hooka, making jewelry and accessories, volunteering, shopping, sightseeing, flowers, adventures and debauchery!

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: I love foreign films. My favorite movie has to be Schindler's List- very humbling.

Books: Currently reading Sweetness in the Belly which is about a British girl who grows in in Northern Africa- she has the feeling of never really belonging anywhere. Amazing!

Music: I love rock, alternative, reggae. My favorite bands are Sublime, Beduoin Soundclash, 311, Dropkick Murphys, etc...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Although I haven't traveled far and wide (yet), I think people can experience amazing things even at home. I volunteer at Camp Sunshine in Maine- a camp for terminally ill kids (cancer, brain tumors, etc.) and their families. After 9/11, I volunteered for a week that brought together a group of families who lost a family member that day. There was a remembrance ceremony at the lake where the kids and spouses wrote messages to their loved ones who had died on white balloons and all at once they released the balloons in the air. At the same time that the hundreds of balloons were released, a beautiful rainbow appeared over the lake. It was one of the most touching moments of my life because it made me realise how short life can be.
