“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” ― Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

Interesting personal fact

When I go to the theater and a trailer for a scary movie comes on I have a mini heart attack. However, I love scary rides, I could ride any roller coaster, go skydiving or bungee jumping at any time.

“At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint, or even remember it. It is enough.” -Toni Morrison

Interesting personal fact

I love whales. Rain makes me happy. I'm addicted to Scrabble. I have oddly small feet and have to wear child-size shoes. I also have many strange and annoying allergies, including a mild allergy to pineapple and a very extreme allergy to Sun Triple Clean laundry detergent. I'm really bad at understanding references to pop culture.

“The hardest thing to do is to act according to your thinking." Growth takes time and is a process in which you have to first learn to know, love and accept yourself. Know that your identity and personality will change consequentially, but that the most important key is to remember not to backtrack. Academically, do not settle on a major as fast explore for a bit

Interesting personal fact

For some reason I learned the Greek alphabet very, very young and until this day I can still remember it. I have no idea why did I picked up the Greek alphabet.

"My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success." - Helen Hayes

Interesting personal fact

I love the culture of Hawaii and like to teach anyone pidgin (Hawaiian Creole English)! I've been hit by and rode a turtle. My lucky number is 13, I am a total goober, enjoy a good joke or pun and I like to tell lame dad jokes. Lastly, I'm really excited to meet you :)!!!

Interesting personal fact

I listen to the 2000's R & B and Hip Hop Pandora station every morning. Mangoes are my favorite fruit. When I was younger my cousins and I would climb mango trees. I am listening to Tupac's "Still I Rise" at the moment.
