So, who am I? Oh, the endless, universal question. Let’s start with the practicals. I am a 21-year-old college student. I mostly grew up in Alaska, but now I go to Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. I have travelled a bit around the world during my life, but I always thirst to see more. I major in biology, which I love because I can use the ideas and theories and motivations in the study of biology to explain most things in life. I am a musician (French horn, mostly). I have had type 1 diabetes for 5.5 years and I am a diabetes advocate. I am extremely interested in Egyptology (bordering on obsession). I am a member of the Novo Nordisk International Diabetes Youth Panel. I plan on going into either public health or wildlife conservation as a career. But most of all, I do not really know what I am right now, I suppose I can only hope this writing project will help me to figure that out.
