A Southern California native, first and foremost. I'm a rabid sports fan (soccer, hockey, football, basketball, and baseball), a TV and movie fanatic, and an undergraduate student majoring in history and sociology (or women's studies) with designs of becoming a teacher. I was raised by a family of history buffs and I found my true passion for history during a trip to Italy when I was thirteen. I fell in love with sociology more recently. I've been in love with politics since fifth grade, when the 2000 elections were in full swing and my classmates and I spent minutes of precious instruction time every day, debating issues we really knew nothing about. My politics are left, but with wisdom to understand that the left is not perfect. I like to talk about the racism, antisemitism, and misogyny that creep quietly throughout the liberal side, in particular.
