This is hard and it will be very difficult to adequately describe myself in a few paragraphs. Some words that would describe me - Truthful, honest, smart, friendly, down to earth, easy going and shy at first. I like to travel and meet new people. I am deeply moved by the needs of others - thoughtful compassion, fair, and sensible. My sense of who I am and what my place is here on earth rests on solid values and principles on the ground I walk upon. I hold both solid beliefs and am open to new ideas, accepting of other people and other ways of thinking and believing. I know who I am: neither closed-minded nor wildly open-minded, but walk somewhere near the middle of the intellectual road. Many find me loyal, honest, trustworthy, dedicated friend and an attractive companion on the intellectual journey. Others see me as just the person they need in tumultuous times - steady companion. I love to learn, always teachable, absorb new information, educated in things that matter. I was born Africa and raised in US.. arrived in the United States at age of 9 and have lived here since.
