No, I was born in the USA. But I am not a West Michigan Native - which sometimes makes one feel like they are from a different country around here.
I've only lived in Michigan (all over) and New York (Long Island) - but I've traveled to India, Africa, Europe and parts of Asia with my kids. I've also worked and lived with people from several different countries. I've found that it's actually easier to be yourself when you're not in a place you're expected to "fit in" - and - it seems my favorite people are those not afraid to explore outside their backyard.
I hope to meet some great people who aren't afraid to go on some of the adventures I can't talk other people into exploring.
Usually Green - but I have my Red Days and Black Nights too.
I'm fairly new to Grand Rapids and have moved around a lot (not necessarily to glamorous places). But I learned to love new people, new places and new adventures.
