"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

I'm Thea, a 20 year old Bay Area native, with a current mission of creating art daily, traveling LA, soaking up the beach, saving $, and meeting as many interesting and artistic people as possible!
I study World Arts and Cultures at UCLA.
Just returned from an inspiring 6 month term in India, where I studied Hindi, Urdu, and sustainable agriculture and traveled the country by motorcycle and train.
I like to grow food, make food for everyone, read novels, take photographs of people, ask questions, drink tea while watching the sunrise, write floetry in my journal, color with pens on the floor, hike and run around, speak Spanish and Hindi, learn marginalized histories, laugh, and run into the ocean...
