|About Me||I hate "About Me" sections. Describing yourself in the context of a small box is difficult. Um, I guess for the basics – I'm a college student majoring in Elementary Education, minoring in Women's Studies, and doing a concentration in Sociology. I feel like everything in my life is complicated including that last sentence. Basically, I want to change the lives of the kids I teach, and I also want to wreak havoc on society via social activism. Now, I just have to consolidate those two images. I have a beautiful, 3-year-old goddaughter. My life is oriented around my family & friends. I love, laugh, cry, sing, write, speak, scream, dream, hope, pray, work, play, & ultimately live. I'm quickly gaining a stronger sense of self. I have a lot to say whether you want to hear it or not. I am here to figure out my place in this crazy world and am determined make changes for the better as I move along.|

"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."
