I have a bachelors degree in art therapy, with a women’s studies minor. I work as a caregiver. I love curiosity. I often enjoy solitude. I feel most drawn to other outsiders and artists.
Nothing is as exciting as mail love. I’ve been writing letters to pen pals since I was 15, and I can’t imagine it not being a part of my life. I’d love to hear from you!
I’d love to find people working in Human Resources to become my pen pals. I will be starting a job as the assistant to a restaurant owner soon and will work my way up to an HR credential. It’d be fantastic to write to people who’re already in the field.
