American, Millenial, Whovian, art historian (kinda). I love Jesus, YouTube, and you. I enjoy me some music, culture, laughter, and linguistics among lots of other random stuff.

I like learning about different kinds of music and discovering artists and bands that would be impossible to hear without the magic of the Internet. It helps me see and hear the world in a new way, and it makes the world seem smaller (in a good way).

Idk if that counts as a hobby though. I just really like learning and experiencing culture.

Yes. My mother is of mainly Scotch-Irish/Scots-Irish descent with a bit of English and German, and my dad is mainly of African descent. However, both sides of my family have had members in the United States for hundreds of years.

Screencap of Juubei from Ninja ScrollA common misconception about anime cartoons amongst uninitiated audiences in majority-English-speaking countries is that anime characters are drawn to look ‘White’ rather than ‘Asian’. First of all, neither of terms are factual fixed categories -…

I cannot fully express how much I love this. This reminds me of the struggles I had coloring a family portrait growing up and constantly having the feeling that my pictures received extra scrutiny because of how I colored everyone’s skin. Being the only mixed kid for 9 years made my parents really curious as to how I saw myself.

Seven Day Culture Challenge

Day 6: What countries did your ancestors come from/what is your nationality?

My ancestors come from Scotland, Ireland (Scotts Irish), England, Germany, Africa, and the Cherokee Nation and Blackfoot Tribe in the United States. My nationality is American/Usonian. Basically, I’m part of the great American melting pot.

Day 5: If you could speak every known language, how would you use your ability?
Easy. Missions. I would work with international students on campus, and build relationships and world mission opportunities.

Day 4: If you were given a year to travel the world where would you go?

Uh, pretty much everywhere! I would do a quick road trip to Austin for Austin City Limits, maybe check out Providence, Rhode Island aka “The Renaissance City,” Then I would go on a 5.5 month tour of Europe, taking my time to absorb like 50 cultures, take a couple weeks across Africa, and then go across Asia for the remainder of the year.

Day 3: If you could speak another language, what would it be?

한국어, obvi. I can already speak it a bit and read it, but if I could be completely fluent in just one language other than English, Korean would be my first choice. Not just because of music or television over there, but the language itself is intrinsically beautiful in my opinion - even down to the way the syllabic blocks function.

I know, I’m a language nerd…okay maybe just a straight up nerd nerd.

Seven Day Culture Challenge - Day 2: What is your favorite type of cuisine?
As long as chicken and/or rice is involved, I’m happy. When you stick the together - fuhgeddaboudit.

Day 1: If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

If not in the US, I would live in East Asia somewhere. Japan or Korea preferably.
