“Who I am today will be different than who I was yesterday and who I choose to be tomorrow. I am designing myself, endlessly. I am the master of my life and all of my disasters.” – Samantha Moss
I’m one of those people who doesn’t know what to say when asked to talk about themselves. My introverted side has a hard time speaking openly about how I see myself. And in the context of this project, I feel like my bio about myself is very closely tied with what I am trying to accomplish with this blog. So, for a brief explanation about my intentions for this project and my reasoning behind all of this, please click here.
As for me, I’m a 21-year-old learner and lover of life. I’m currently setting down what will be a long road of finding myself and growing into who I’m meant to be. I struggle between my notions of who I am now, who I want to be, how I’m going to find my way there, and how to exist in the space in between. I’m constantly questioning myself and finding new passions that further ignite the flames that are growing inside me. I am a trauma survivor, and have come out of my experiences with personal lessons and knowledge that I am itching to share with the world. I have a natural drive to help and heal, which is why I have found myself studying International Development and Journalism at Dalhousie University in Halifax. I have growing passions for feminism, human rights, sustainable development, global health, empowerment, and equality. I try to keep my opinions on human rights equal and intersectional, and I strive to foster existence in a safe space. More than anything, I love to write.
I’m intensely curious on how others perceive me, as I’m not quite sure yet how I perceive myself. I like to believe that I have a kind soul, which has come out of the beautiful relationships in my life and constantly striving to grow. I love spoken word and written poetry, visual art, music, and anything that makes me feel connected with something bigger than myself. I intend to use this project in the same way that I use my daily journal- to map my growth and look back on my progress in times where I feel I haven’t made any.
I learn best through talking and listening, so I’m always open to have conversations on any topic. Feel free to shoot me a message on my contact page or over my social media. If you’d like to meet in person, I love any independent coffee shop that can serve up a bad-ass Americano.
For now, that’s a summed-up version of me. Always changing, always growing.
