I won't be able to see you smile, hear you laugh, or observe your anxiety and depression melt away, but knowing that simply listening to you rids the world of a tiny bit of sorrow is the best reward. I am a optimistic extrovert with enough energy and self-motivation to conquer my little world... But my best efforts at helping others will help no one if I fail to listen. Listening to your struggles, whether they be day to day challenges or life obstacles helps get me out of my own self-centered little world. I love the concept of this site and I firmly believe I am on this earth to help complete strangers and strangers will help me in ways they will never know.

I am a sociology major hoping to pursue a career as a career resource specialist or recreation therapist. I am from Chicago, but I live in Miami now. I am the eldest of 6 children, two of whom are adopted from Ethiopia. I am passionate about volunteering abroad and recently returned from an orphanage in Ethiopia. I am self-employed as a swim instructor, personal trainer, house cleaner, and children's fitness instructor.

"In the past, it didn't matter that my bottom wasn't living under a bridge, it matters where I was heading and the dark place my head was in. Today It doesn't matter where I've been, it matters where I am going one day at a time. Your bottom is when you stop digging."

I am a recovering alcoholic and addict with a history of eating disorders and depression. I also have severe general anxiety and OCD tendencies. I am serene today knowing that I am gaining self-awareness, selflessness, and gratitude. I am spiritual but not religious. I am a friend of bill W and of myself today. I hope you will feel called to chat with me if my listening to you will help both of us!!
