I am genuine, first and foremost. My friends would say I am trustworthy, a bit alternative, playful, socially conscious, and funny. I tend to go for depth over breadth, and can be opinionated-but always open-minded. I am strong, perceptive, and very independent. I have experienced some challenging things in my life, but I always come up shining, stronger. I'm a survivor. I"m a woman with more than a little bit of child left in me---capable, strong, honest, and serious with a huge dash of mischievous-making and play stirred in.
