In April of 2013 graduated from Booth University College in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with a Bachelors Degree in Behavioural Sciences (Sociology and Psychology). In June of 2013, I traveled to rural Zimbabwe to live and work for a 6 month period. As of September 2014, I will be working towards my Master’s Degree in Sociology with a specialization in Women’s Studies in Northern Ontario.
I like parks, and bengal spice (or peppermint) tea. Teddy Bears make me smile, because they always love you, even when you probably don’t deserve it.
I plan on having an area in the house that I live in, where there will be pillows and blankets and Christmas-y lights, and books and speakers. A “being room”.
I am obsessed with words, and the way that they are used. Maya Angelou, Cornel West, Jamie Tworkowski, Dorothy Day, and Renee Yohe are some favorites.
I dream of a great love. Not a perfect love, but a great love.
Jesus Christ and I are pals. I tend to say that our relationship began in May of 2011, during a trip to Zimbabwe, but I know that 2011 is just when I accepted Him into my life; He wanted to know me all along.
I believe that world would be a better place if women had more power.
I want to spend my life loving everybody I meet. Especially those who society has made feel unworthy of love and of being in the past.
Team building and “get-to-know-you” games make me happy.
“Hope” is one of the most important concepts that I’ve ever come across. “Salvation” is a close second.
