I am overall very rounded. I'm just as passionate in music as I am in sports and social life and I really enjoy doing many things and not concentrating on just one. For my outlook on life, I try to look at a situation through other perspectives and make judgments based off of a how a situation impacts everyone, not just individuals. I currently study at Allegheny College and plan on majoring in Psychology, which I hope to use in either clinical therapy or research.
An idea worth spreading
People are universally different and everyone together makes up our world. Even on TED, the community formed is brought together by everyone's posts, comments and interactions. To say one way of perceiving something is right or wrong is an impossible idea because everyone perceives things differently. One thing people should stop and consider is how their actions and words affect others. Ignorance is a huge problem and the best way to solve it is to keep an open mind. Next time someone says something you strongly disagree with, stop and consider why they think that. Understanding rationality is a huge part of communication and it is quite often overlooked.
I'm passionate about
Personal rights. Everyone has their opinion and as long as it can be shared respectfully and considerately of others, use your right to free speech!
Talk to me about
Anything really, but my favorite subjects are not dinner table appropriate. Religion, politics, debates on sexuality and social norms, rights and freedoms, etc.
People don't know I'm good at
Understanding. My friends always assume I judge them based off of my reaction and I wish I could change that (New Year's Resolution!). I always hear your point and I will value your opinion.
