Tell us about yourself in 50 words or less. We want to know one or two things that you'd want someone to know about you?

I am extremely outgoing and energetic. I love being around positive people and like minded individuals. I spend most of my downtime with my cat and my boyfriend. I like non-fiction novels, the Radiolab podcast and anything that has to do with Amy Schumer.

What are you most grateful for in life?

I am most grateful for my family and friends... and my cat. I am grateful for being at a point in my life where I can love myself for who I am, and it's been a long and weird path to get here. I'm grateful for my ability to accept things I can't change about myself, and the ability to grow from my mistakes.

Was there ever a time that you felt ugly? What happened and how did you react?

There's been plenty of times when I have felt ugly. Mainly when I was a teenager. I always felt different growing up, and some of my lowest moments were when I had acne ridden skin and was desperate for attention from boys. Any boy really. Looking back I'm like, "Ew, what was I thinking!" but at the time it seemed so important. I was riddled with confidence issues and was seeking reassurance in all the wrong places. I learned to attract the right people by doing my own thing, being my quirky self and listening to "really alternative music." :)

What makes you beautiful?

I think my personality is what makes me beautiful. I like to think I have the ability to make people happy. I want to be the friend that people turn to and the one that gives really bomb hugs. I think that's working for me.

How has your idea of beauty changed over the years?

I have become a lot less judgemental of other women in the past few years, so in turn my idea of beauty has changed a lot. I give people a chance before I decide who I think they are. And in turn I can see people's true beauty. I think what's beautiful now is who I want to be, rather than who I think other people want me to be.

If you could go back in time and give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?

I would tell myself to chill out and put things into perspective. No, it doesn't matter how short your skirt is. No, it doesn't matter if you don't have a life plan right away. No, it doesn't matter if you want to wear all black every day. Just relax, and live life one day at a time.
