I’m actually finding it hard to write about myself, but that’s fine. Ahah, I’ll get over it. I’m really into all good music and crying during the sad parts of movies. I’ve lived in parts of Africa and the Middle East, but i’ve been going to American and International schools for the entirety of my life.
Right now I’m a sophomore at my high school. All in all, I would say I’m not the most intriguing person. But hey, Future Pen Pal, we could share experiences, maybe be friends, and learn something new from each other.

Preferences: Of course, if you feel like we’d have some top quality banter, don’t hold back, but I’d like to keep it appropriate. Please and thanks

Stop believing everything you see in the media. Some places in Africa are very poor, but some places are not poor at all. Just like there are some places in America that are very poor, but some places that are not poor at all. A few pictures and videos from the media about “how poor Africa is” should not determine how you view that entire continent because if that were the case, many would assume ALL Americans lived in poverty based on the few pictures I’ve shown you. Open your minds.

twhiddleston A deadly famine has put millions of children in danger in South Sudan and across East Africa. But with your help, @Unicef staff can reach children with life-saving food and care, and help prevent more cases of malnutrition. I’ve been to the South Sudan twice to meet children and their families, and I have seen the impact Unicef is making. Please visit the link in my bio to find out more. [link]

When discovering a new city, do you prefer planning the day over breakfast in bed or an early morning explore?
