Born and raised within the wonderful state of Illinois to a loving family. Raised a Roman Catholic, now a Buddhist/atheist. Lived in Georgia for 6 years of my life. Currently going to school for English with a concentration in writing and religious studies. Eagle Scout.
Religion, learning new things, teaching others, and finding peace in all aspects of the human existence.
My dream is to find a way for all of the world's religions to coexist in harmony with one another. We are too intertwined across the globe to allow our social structures to continue to divide us. In order to achieve world peace, we need to start with the most important facet of humanity. In order to love our neighbors across this vast planet, we need to learn about their beliefs and why they believe the way they do.
Anything, I'm always open to learning new things and considering viewpoints from different perspectives.
Cooking and gardening.
I want to change the world. That simple phrase gives my life a purpose and meaning that's unique to me. I want to leave this existence knowing that I made a positive impact, starting from something as small as my family, and going up to impacting every human on this planet. I don't know how I will accomplish it. It is a one day, one step at a time, lifetime goal for me. I welcome anyone and everyone I meet to help me with this goal. We are all interconnected. One's failures fail us all, and one's success makes us all successful.
