I would describe myself as a simple gal. It's the little things in life that make me happy! I have a serious side, but most of the time I am a complete goof ball.
Music is a deep passion of mine. I love discovering new bands/artists and writing music as well; I can't think of a better form of self-expression. My other favorite hobby would have to be baking -- I have a little sweet tooth!
I also love to write, and have a deep obsession with social media and everything digital.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Seek and I shall find.
What inspires or excites you?
In a word: People. What has been inspiring me a lot lately is our global society. People all around the world are sticking up for human rights and pushing their governments for social and political change. Sometimes we don't realize how lucky we have it; our problems often seem huge, when in reality they are minuscule.
The Egyptian revolution really opened my eyes to the world of journalism, and allowed me to develop a deep appreciation for journalists who put their lives on the line, to make other people's voices heard. A story is a powerful thing. It can make you laugh, cry, or anger you, but in every story there is a lesson to be learned.
Social media has allowed anyone to have a voice. It has empowered a global community of citizens to hear one another, and learn from one another as well.
In essence, people inspire me! From the activist, to the painter, to the plumber, we all make the world what it is.
