I am a law school graduate, Presidential Management Fellow, master chef, amateur fashion designer, and sometimes theologian who likes to rant about social issues, watch terrible television by the season (not the episode), and travel to new places.
I moved to D.C. three years ago to start law school, and I loved every minute (except for the first nine months of my first year, but that is complicated). I believe in speaking for the voice-less, and have worked on some really exciting projects like eliminating prison rape and increasing public housing in American cities.
Before D.C., I lived in Nashville, Tennessee, and attended college at Union University. Union is a private Christian school, and while the super conservative mentality of the student body was often a thorn in my side, it also provided the safest, most beautiful four years of undergraduate education that I could have asked for. I found myself while leading my sorority, Kappa Delta (AOT baby!!), through some difficult years and learned that what I want most in life is to give others the tools and confidence they need to change their own worlds.
As I start out with my new job, fresh out of graduate school, I will use this blog to help me maintain perspective and balance in a busy life. Too quickly I lose sight of my personal goals and dreams due to the immediate needs and demands of each day — I pray that this blog will remind me to see the bigger picture each day, and provide an interesting (or semi-interesting!) perspective for its readers while keeping my special long-lost friends in the loop about my not-really-that-exciting life.
