I am a woman of many roles: wife, daughter,sister, stepmother, aunt, nurse, homemaker, christian, feminist. I am 40 years old and was raised in "the South." I love being a Southerner and embrace the hospitality that we are famous for, and dislike how we are portrayed in most movies. Speaking of movies...I am an american cinemophile. I love movies, especially from the 40;s, 50's, and 60's. I am also a poet. I have a degree in English literature, but I am a practicing nurse. Life takes you down strange paths, and mine has had a few twists and turns. I have been a feminist since taking my first "Women's Studies" class in college....and it rang true and strong to me. I am part of a wonderful team of ladies and gentleman on a webpage called World Wide Women, with our aim to help women be protected from domestic violence and advance the cause of equality for women around the world. I lost my sister to domestic violence 3 years ago, and it was the defining point of my adulthood. My love for her is always and I carry on for her and her child, whom I take care of, only. Movies, Poetry, Feminism Being assertive and facing conflict, not avoiding it. Caring, loving, trusting, praying
My Vision for the Future
To see my sister's child succeed and thrive.
