I am a Southern Baptist/ Messianic Jew ( i'm a converted Jew, but still attend synagogue occassionally to keep up with my Jewish heritage).
Over 1/2 of my dad's family died during the Holocaust...so i am very into studying the Holocaust, and researching everything i can find on it.
I'm a bit of a mutt puppy- Russian ,Irish, Danish, Cherokee, Polish- but when it comes down to it, I'm an American, and i'm feel proud and blessed to be one
My parents have been divorced since i was little- my father and stepmother were very abusive towards me- so i've lived permanently with my mom since i was 11.
I was raped when i was 17 by my "boyfriend" at the time- since then, i've learned how to deal with it and discuss it open and honestly with others. I've been a mentor at some of the local rape crisis centers around my city and i really enjoy helping women in their times of need.
I grew up on a farm right outside of memphis when i was little- i had goats, chickens, roosters, ducks....everything ...I really miss it- if i'm ever fortunate enough to have a choice of buying land and owning my own place- i would want a farm
