Wild Fact About Me I volunteered for Kiva in Bosnia, Kenya and the Philippines. I learned to say "this food is absolutely delicious" in all 3 languages. (Though in the case of Kenya, it was a lie.)

What Gives Me Hope That people living in absolute poverty can still find beauty, happiness and magic in their lives
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would set up programs to empower individuals with tangible ideas for fixing their communities in localized ways.
