About Me

FST! me

We avoid eye contact with each other. All of us. Like we’re in a video game where everyone else is a non-playing character in our personal storyline. But not you. You just clicked on my About Me page. Great job! You just recognized that I am a person and maybe you want to know more. Just remember, it’s okay if we disagree on things – that’s what leads to the progression of ideas.

As for my story, I am an optimistic, adventure-seeking, feminist, activist, anti-racist, liberal, music-loving, yoga-centered, outdoorsy, educator and writer. I write about all of the aforementioned topics, but with a focus on educational issues. I’m a former high school special education teacher and have a Master of Science in neuroscience and education from Columbia University.

  1. Hey, Trynia. (I’m assuming that’s your name by your email)

    I love what you’re doing. What you said really stuck out to me: “because each of them is the main character in his or her own storyline, and you have the opportunity to play a part.” That way of looking at social interaction is fantastic and makes me want to become a part of more stories.

    1. You just made my day by commenting! Thank you. I think we can all be more compassionate and cognizant of the fact that people all have their own problems and lives. We can either be a positive influence or a negative. So thank you for the positivity!
