Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I was born in the community of Harlem, New York in 1954. I am a product of private school education from the elementary school to the college level. I possess B.A. Degrees in Sociology and History in addition to a Certification in Business Administration.

I worked for the State of New York for twenty-six years. My last position before my retirement was that of a Human Rights Specialist, a job that I thoroughly and immensely enjoyed. I am happily single. I am an unabashedly unapolegetic only child who is very liberal and humanistic in my outlook.

Being an only child has made me extremely univeralistic in outlook and perspective as I had non-related friends from various backgrounds. The latter are still friends with me to this day, one can say that they are less like friends and more like family. Furthermore, being an only child has made me think outside the box and to be highly selective to people who elect to go on the road less traveled.

As a result of being an only child, I am a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood and a woman's right to choose and control her reproductive destiny. I strongly support keeping abortion legal. I am a passionate advocate for the small family of 1-2 children in order for children not to endure their formative years in socioeconomic impoverishment and want which is highly prevalent in large/very large families(6 or more children). In fact, I am extremely pro-small family. I am also a very fervent advocate for childfree and 1-child families as there is still residual prejudice against such families.

I am a staunch feminist who believes that there are myriad avenues for women to express themselves in terms of their human development. I am a believer that women should use all of their facets in order to achieve the very best life possible. I have been a feminist since I was sixteen years, being exposed to my first book on feminism, Born Female by Caroline Bird.

My sociological background enables me to understand the underlying societal underpinnings as to the reason why many individuals, social groups, and institutions function the way they do. Sociology asists one in understanding both individual and group social dynamics. I am very interested in family dynamics and the paramount importance of family planning and contraceptive education have in the advancement of family and society.

Through the judicious use of family planning and contraception, every family can have a high quality of life, living instead of barely existing at a rudimentary level. That is why the large/very large family is wrong. Large/very large families are detrimental to the family, especially to children, emotionally, mentally, psychologically, and socioeconomically. I am also interested in socioeconomic class issues and other measurable factors such as academic achievement, career aspirations, and attitude towards life.

My favorite subject to write about is the family- childfree, small and large. I also love to write social commentary. Another one of my favorite subjects to write about is astrology. I am vastly interested in the spiritual side of things. I am quite fascinated with the dark and the concept of darkness physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. Psychodynamics interest me very much. I also love to write fiction, especiallly horror and supernatural fiction.

Writing is a spiritual experience to me. It is nourishing to my soul. Writing helps my mind to become more acute and satisfies my creative being. My other hobbies include reading, sketching, and shopping, especially for shoes. In addition to the aforementioned hobbies, I love history and watching History Channel programs on my portable dvd player. I believe that having myriad hobbies makes one a better person and it keeps one's mind alert into old age. I also love perfume whether it is designer perfumes or perfume oils.

My motto is education, self-actualization, an appreciation of beauty and the finer things of life. I strongly believe that children should be exposed to cultural activities and the arts from an early age. This makes them more empathetic and have an appreciation for finer things.

I do not believe in societal conventions but in following my own drummer so to speak. My tastes in food are eclectic ranging from soul food to sushi. I am in love with all types of Asian cuisine. My main standby is Chinese and Japanese cuisine. I am now curious about Thai cuisine and shall sample it. I love to write very much.
