I've been very fortunate to travel my entire life and find that there is no way to replicate the entirely awesome feeling of being in a new country or situation or town, simply enjoying the atmosphere.

Currently, I am studying history in Atlanta with a focus on American women in the era of the World Wars. I love this field of study in particular because I find that it is not memorizing hard facts to use against history channel fanatics later in life. Rather, my passion for history is driven by my passion for understanding people's lives, making my academic discipline one of historical exploration and anthropology over textbook recitation. I enjoy verbally sparring with closed-minded individuals about the importance and necessity of training individuals to understand history. I'm not at all as cantankerous as I seem.

After undergrad, I plan to earn advanced degrees in library studies and archival management. If there is one thing to which I am truly passionate, it is the importance of the protection and cultivation of the world's historical remembrances, be they oral, literary, or artifact.

I aspire to continue travelling, as my next trip is to Guadalajara, Mexico this summer to stay with a friend's family for several weeks. I look forward to defying all of my cultural expectations. In the distant future I hope to travel Central and Eastern Europe to understand their culture and make sense of the few fragments of their history taught in Western schooling.

I am inspired by the world and the people that shape the intricacies of contemporary civilization.
