Where I’m from
I’ve spent three plus decades of my life in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It can be cold. It’s rather flat. For some weird reason it’s a thing here to eat horrifically unhealthy foods served on wooden popsicle-like sticks (such as butter). All those things aside, there are many enjoyable aspects of life in Minnesnowta; a strong biking, music and arts scene. We take relatively good care of our outdoor spaces and have many state parks and a few nationally protected lands within our border. Minneapolis ranks high in all things health, fitness and literacy. This has impacted my lifestyle and hobbies with many of my favorite activities rooted in Minnesota life: urban bike rides, trail runs, forest hikes, watching and playing football (soccer), drinking beer, reading and cooking. While traveling and at home I love searching for vintage travel ads and scavenging flea markets an bookshops for old postcards. Professionally I’ve bounced around various organizations dedicated to public health, public access to green space and women’s empowerment. Currently, I’m looking for work abroad and studying to become an ESL teacher.
