Hello people of Earth and beyond! My name is Amy, and I am a student at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. I am originally from Wisconsin (Go Pack), I moved to Maryland almost 6 years ago.

I am a Feminist Activist in training. Yet, I have anxiety and depression- mix that with ultimate shyness, it is hard for me to express my values (activism) or even speak out. Currently, I am a double major in Gender + Women’s Studies and Anthropology and a minor in Sociology and Critical Sexuality Studies.

I took the wonderful class, Feminist Activism, with the super cool Dr. Kate last year, because I want to become more outspoken, and more involved. This blog is my way to tell my story and adventures of trying to do that, while having a mental illness. It is so hard for me to speak up and speak out, but even if I don’t, I have opinions, basically the simple right to speak my opinion.

The original plan was to post a few times a week, which did not happen. However, I will try to post as often as I can.
