Wild Fact About Me I was born in Woluwe St. Lambert, Brabant, Belgium. I also used to make "whale noises" in the bathtub as a baby and earned the nickname "Baby Whale" from my family, which is rather unfortunate, but also cute
My Philosophy I hate political parties
What Gives Me Hope That so many have done this thing called life before me and survived, hearing the cicadas in the trees during a Virginia summer and seeing the fireflies beneath them, fresh flowers
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would make certain that every homeless person has sufficient psychological/psychiatric care
What/who changed my life and why A biography about Jane Goodall - since then I have been obsessed with Africa and will do anything to get there. Also Sylvia Plath's book the Bell Jar - so raw and beautiful, and it gave me insight into my own mind

Quotation I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited. (Sylvia Plath)

And still I rise. (Maya Angelou)
