About Me: 

I live in Portland, OR and am a senior at Portland State University. I am a Woman's Studies major, and I volunteer at a domestic violence shelter. I'm not sure yet what I want to do with my degree once I graduate, but I am interested in finding solutions to end domestic violence, creating freedom of sexual identity and practices, and finding a holistic approach to ending the sexism, racism, homophobia and all the other phobias and isms that intersect with each other and support the systems of oppression, privilege and power that cause so much devastation and harm to people everywhere. In addition to my education, I live with my partner and our two dogs, study astrology and belly dancing, and have a strong spiritual practice and involvement with Reclaiming (reclaiming.org). I'm grateful and overjoyed to find this community and hope to learn from it further and be a part of it. Blessed be!
