I grew up in the Down East community of North Carolina. Like so many others from Down East, saltwater–not blood– runs in my veins.
I attend Western Carolina University and will graduate in 2014. My college years have been amazing; this truly is a wonderful period of adventure and self-discovery. I hope to always retain the “full of life” attitude I came to know in myself while an undergraduate.
I wouldn’t use any conventional words to describe myself. I’m a fan of tattoos (I currently have 3), and I only got a second hold pierced in one ear (too many people get a second piercing in each ear).
I’m a strong believer in taking chances and living in accordance with my dreams. I believe in God and carry Him with me always. I believe in my own capabilities and the joy that can be found in abandoning expectations. I believe that the world, much like myself, is at a crossroads and that we the people can determine our direction.
