Hi! My name is Erika.
I am a student at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. I am majoring in Women's Studies and Political Science, and also minoring in Law & Legal Studies.
I was born in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan and moved to Portland when I was 5.
I have a wonderful partner whom I live with. Not married...yet. One cat...a fluffy black cat named C.C. No kids...yet. Getting to know people, traveling, empowering women, education, photography Feeling overwhelmed, lack of sleep, a sensitive stomach (really, my tummy is sensitive), patience ...can we ever really be experts?? I'm not even an expert on myself!
My Vision for the Future
I would like it if people tried to listen to each other more; have some more compassion...for everyone to practice love, including myself.
