About me

I was a nerd...

In fourth grade, I gave a 4-H speech on feminism and secretly wished for my eighteen birthday so I could vote. I was already a black belt in a Korean martial art and had read every book I could find on cats in my elementary school library. 

...and I still am. 
My closet has the same button-down long sleeve shirt in four different colors, I read hard copy newspapers at every meal and spend ours listening to spoken word poetry online (Andrea Gibson is my personal favorite.). Most amusing to my friends and family, I play roller derby under the alias Josie PulHitsHer. I am currently studying journalism at the University of Missouri and hope to work at a major daily news organization in the future. Old school, I know.
