Hobbies: Reading, swimming, social activism

Hidden talent: Baking! I don't do it often unfortunately, but I'm pretty good at it when I get inspired.

Mantra: Keep your heart and your mind wide open.

Anything else you might want the Tribe members to know about you: I love encouraging people to feel more comfortable and bolder in their bodies.
