I was born in California and grew up in Kansas. My mom is a little Filipino lady, and my dad is a big Jew from New York. Sometimes I still look at them and wonder how they got married, but they seem to make it work! I graduated from KU last year. Now I work a desk job during the day and go to graduate school for a masters in education at night. I have three younger sisters who really sparked my passion for education and mentoring. I like to think deep and complexly about things, but i still am easy going on the surface.
