Chapter 1: My Childhood.... (oh, wait, wrong bio)
I'm originally from the East Coast, but find myself truly loving the California lifestyle the longer I'm here.
Not too long ago I spent a year volunteering as a teacher abroad in Tanzania, and from that amazing experience the biggest lesson I've learned is that if you really want to be the best version of yourself and be happy, you have to have the courage to always be true to your individuality and not settle for anything less than what you truly want. Always face your fears and challenge yourself as much as possible.
I'm a person who enjoys a positive outlook on life and is always looking to challenge myself no matter where I am and what situation I find myself in. It's taken some time, but I've come to a point in life where I feel very confident about who I am and what I'm looking for. I would love to find someone who feels the same way, and has the same attitude in life. Someone willing to challenge themselves on a daily basis, and appreciates the journey as much as the destination. I love working with students and other young people to help them become the best individuals they can be, even as I work to do that myself every day.
As a pretty active runner, I'd also love to meet someone who likes being active and enjoys exploring the outdoors, as well. Oh, and a great sense of humor wouldn't hurt!
I could easily talk a lot more about what I'm looking for and who I am, but isn't that what's exciting about actually getting to know someone outside of a profile?
