Some random things about me:
I have a darling hamster named Gatsby (she is a little girl… many of my pets have had gender-confused names)
I just graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. in sociology
I studied abroad in Pune, India during the summer of 2011 and loved it! Here is the most cliche picture I could find to symbolize this experience.
I love to bake, especially cupcakes. One of my nicknames is Babycakes.
I have been in marching band for the past 8 years! I play the tenor saxophone and I rock that polyester uniform.
I am a part of a local food collective, which I love! I support eating fresh and eating local food. It is possible even with a college student budget!
I love costumes, and I tend to go all out for them. Pictured here is me as Katy Perry this past Halloween, a costume for which I dyed my red hair black (it’s still dark, two months later). Past costumes include: Barbie from Toy Story 3, Annie from the Parent Trap, Eve (yes, of Adam and Eve… my nude-colored unitard has proved very useful), a flapper, 80’s aerobic instructor… you get the picture.
I am a Christian and have been a part of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for the past four years. I have grown a tremendous amount in my faith during college thanks to wonderful friends and mentors, all thanks to the grace of God.
