About Me I am very dedicated to my causes, to the extent that I tend to get chronically depressed about the state and the fate of the world. For me this acts as more motivation to take action. I do not want to go into politics, but I rather want to make a difference either individually or through art, which I am very interested in.

Wild Fact About Me My headmistress considers me one of the worst pupils the school has ever seen, because of my political activism and ehical convictions.
My Philosophy People need to be moved to care. In many cases people do know about issues, but do not care. Ethics should be stood up for even if you have everything going against you.
What Gives Me Hope The success of previous activists whose case seemed hopeless, like Harvey Milk and Nelson Mandela.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Make animal rights equally important to human rights and eliminate all forms of rule-bound gender stereotyping.
