It's complicated

MSU News - November 15, 2017 - 1:05pm
I am a complicated woman. There's no easy box or category that I fit into. My interests, likes, dislikes, skills, personality traits and activities are all over the place. I love Broadway shows and also gritty hockey games. I'm a confident extrovert who sometimes feels absolutely shy and insecure. I'm outgoing and self-assured but oh-so-sensitive. I enjoy baking but was also happy laying tile in my bathroom and replacing my car's headlight. I simply don't adhere to traditional roles for tradition's sake.
