I am a passionate person who wants to leave the world better than I found it. I love talking about ideas. In a group, I try to make everyone feel involved and welcome. I'm active, and I enjoy learning and trying new things. I love to travel and want to return to Africa soon. I like trivia and share it generously. I appreciate sarcasm, but not when it's mean. My family is very close, and they are the most important thing in the world to me. At heart, I'm a teacher and will encourage you to do that thing that you really want to do but maybe don't think you can. I have embraced the fact that I am not perfect and have learned I can't expect perfection from anyone else, either. I've got a solid foundation, yet I'm still growing and learning every day. Despite how that sounds, I try not to take myself too seriously. I'm looking for an active, interesting, supportive partner who shares some of my interests and is excited about sharing new things with me.
