I'm a Women's and Gender Studies major and radical feminist. I'm currently trying to finish school without completely compromising my principles; a task easier said than done. I had to leave school for medical reasons, and now I'm stuck in an unfamiliar state living with my mother and stepfather, with one year left of college to complete. A situation I never would have pictured myself in. Now, I'm just trying, like anyone else in their early twenties, to figure out who I am, where I want to go/be, and how to get there. My hope is that I will use my life as a means to inspire and change the world, whether it's via social justice work, the environment, or anything else I'm passionate about. Thomas Paine said, "We have it in our power to begin the world over again." I believe that. The tasks ahead may be daunting, but it must begin somewhere, and I want to be a part of it.
