I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles. I currently live in Washington DC. In my spare time, I love ballet (both dancing it and watching it), barre class, making my own jewelry, and hanging out with my friends. Right now, I am finishing up my dissertation.
I am generally a neat and easy-going person. I had always thought that I was a light packer (and all of my American friends think that I am), but during my last two trips to Brazil, at least one Brazilian man each time has commented on how much I pack.
