Since this is JDate, I will say that I am the product of a Jewish father and a Catholic mother, but I have been rasied in both traditions and I feel a very deep connection to my Jewish heritage. I am an intelligent, compassionate, and motivated woman who will take any opportunity to learn or experience something new. I have great concern for other people and believe in focusing on the good in humanity and living that belief everyday of my life. I think that we all have the power to make ourselves who we want to be, as Ghandi said, "live the change you want to see." I am not self-centered but I know that I am the only one who is going to live my life so I do my best to make choices that will realize all the great potential that I have. I am looking for someone who is thoughtful and intelligent and capable of good discussion, I want them to have compassion for others as well as a true passion for something. I really want somebody that considers me to be their friend. I want a kind, considerate person who really wants to get to know me. I am looking for someone who will think that I am wonderful and will inspire me to think the same about them.
