I love to travel and meet people from different cultures, which has lead me to study anthropology in college. I love to learn and speak different languages and understand the culture of a place through its people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I conducted anthropological field work in Roraima, Brazil (the savannah area of the Amazon). I visited and stayed in various indigenous communities and learned about their way of life. I eventually wrote my thesis on the indigenous movement of Roraima. I consider this an amazing accomplishment because I don't know many people who have had the opportunity to get to know indigenous people and their culture the way I have.
