I'm an optimistic twenty-something-year-old with an endless well of wanderlust. I'm in love with my pet dachshund/beagle. I was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles and studied environmental science and Spanish in college. I'm currently doing a teaching fellowship in Oakland, a neat city which has become sort of a hub for social justice, education reform, art, and real food movements. I love music, animals, hiking, running, reading, swimming, music, and so soso many more things. That is all for now!
