I grew up in the small town Bend, Oregon... though it's no longer very small but still remains quaint. After graduating from the University of Oregon in journalism, I waited tables so I could travel before "growing up." Now it looks as if it's time to start doing so and thus I just moved to Portland where I could explore more opportunities. I'm looking to volunteer, to get into publishing, to freelance write, to go to concerts, to try a new restaurant as often as I can afford, to go back to school, to network and make new friends, to fall in love and to eventually go on another trip! World Pulse is an incredible outlet for women like me who love reading and writing, international advocacy and women's empowerment and I hope to use it for networking and inspiration.
