HobbiesI am a very creative and curious person, and so I'm always willing to try a hobby once - even if it means facing my fear of heights or realizing that I have absolutely no drawing talent whatsoever. During a class on leadership that I took in college, they assessed our top leadership skills, and one of mine was WOO, short for "Winning Others Over." What this means is that I love figuring out what makes people tick, or what we have in common - whether it's something as profound as a deep passion for social justice, or as simple as a mutual appreciation for Captain America.
In my spare time, I love hobbies that allow me to make something creative or learn more about the world and then share that experience with others, such as cooking and DIY projects. I also enjoy writing poetry and essays, traveling, interior decorating, and the occasional Netflix binge.
