IN TERESTS
I like to read, write poetry, and draw in my free time. I love learning new things everyday,
whether it be related to my current passions or just something completely random. I
aspire to be as inspiring as I am inspired, and I hope to one day be a role model for
others. I also love animals, but sadly am allergic to dogs and cats. My dream job would be
playing a concert at a charity event for animals.
