My hobbies are reading, writing, playing the piano, running, walking, and biking. I enjoy learning about other cultures and languages. I can speak several languages including Spanish, Japanese, a bit of Romanian, a bit of Hungarian, and Hebrew. Broadening my horizons in any way I can is something I take seriously. Meeting new people and establishing connections with them, if possible, is of great importance to me. I am a person who is perseverant, determined, honest, and who makes the best of what life has to offer.
