I am a 20-something Social Worker from Arizona who utilizes arts and crafts for self expression and for stress relief at the end of a long day of working with teenagers. My dream is to be an art teacher for youth and to empower youth to use art as healing self expression. I love to paint, collage, scrapbook, and send handwritten letters. I LOVE getting mail!
In my spare time I LOVE to bike, take my dog for a walk, Geocache and do yoga. I enjoy getting dressed up and wearing creative outfits. I've been known to write creative stories and poetry.
I have two pet rabbits who are adorable and extremely spoiled. I'm passionate about helping other people learn, grow and heal. I love to learn new things about other people, cultures and religions/spiritualities and will appreciate getting anything that shows and teaches me something new.
I am currently in the process of learning to speak Spanish and would love to receive anything that helps me to learn the language or any materials written in Spanish!
I have a quirky sense of humor...I love sarcasm, irony and puns.
My favorite colors are yellow and blue. I also really enjoy purple and pink.
My favorite holiday is Valentine's Day.
