I'm twenty-two, female, and live in St. Louis, MO. I live with my parents, my sister, and my dog, though I have several other half-siblings that live all over the United States and in Israel. I recently graduated from Washington University (in St. Louis, not Washington,) with a major in Spanish. I'm pre-med and possibly an aspiring fantasy author. I'm a vegetarian and agnostic. I volunteer at a stable for disabled horseback riders and do other community service. I've also started practicing aikido recently. I've traveled to a lot of different countries, and have dual citizenship in the US and Israel (though I've never lived in the latter). I spent five months living in Spain and it was, in many ways, a life-changing experience.
