Hello, all! I absolutely LOVE to write, and am always on the lookout for more places to do so. A bit about me: I am an 18-year-old Christian young woman, and a freshman in college majoring in International Studies. I was born 4 months premature, weighing 1 pound and 12 ounces at birth, and I have a ton of health issues. My medical file resembles Webster's Dictionary. If you ever need medical advice for a story, ask away - chances are I'll be able to answer! When I'm not in the hospital (or visiting it for checkups), I enjoy reading, writing stories, playing computer games, and hanging out with friends. I speak passable Spanish, really bad French, and decent Arabic. My dad is a former police officer, and has taught me to handle pistols and rifles. We compete in IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) target shooting matches together.

I spend more time flat on my back than on my feet when I'm on the ice.)
