Paralegal Assistant | PHP

 

Born and raised in Ohio so I’ll always be a Midwestern girl at heart. Moved to NYC for the culture, but stayed for the Pizza =). I love hanging with friends, lounging in the grass, swimming in the ocean, and debating the existence of Aliens. I used to love Wine but…..Islam =\. In my free time I like to study human evolution and write.

Me and My “Sisters”

We’ve been friends for nearly 20 years, so we’re basically sisters. This is us at a friend’s wedding last summer. Family is so important, especially the family we choose.

Me and My Brothers

Nothing beats brothers, and I’m lucky enough to have a big and a little =). My brothers are EVERYTHING to me! Here we are last Christmas. They are truly my biggest blessing.

Me at Montserrat in Spain

Climbing down Montserrat (mostly alone) was an amazing experience. I learned so much about the Black Madonna and how much she means to the people of Catalunya. The beauty of God’s creation is indescribable! Here I am standing next to a 1200 year old archway at Santa Maria de Montserrat.

More About Me…

Fun Fact: I’m a pretty good swimmer (swim 3 times a week)

If you were to write a novel, what would you write about?
I’d write a novel about Ardipithecus Ramidus, an early human ancestor that lived 4.4 million years ago. It’s the first hominid that walked upright. The novel would probably be a love story of sorts since those sell the best. It would be about the first individual to walk upright and how he is ostracized by his entire community because he is different. He falls in love with a female who sees him for the Kanye-level genuis that he is. Eventually they procreate and the rest of the community dies off because…..survival of the fittest.
Who in the company would you like to switch jobs with?
Willie.

Not exactly sure what he does, but he always seems to be having a good time!

If you could be an animal what would you be?
A lion.
I value loyalty above all, I enjoy lounging in the sun, and I’m a Leo.
So basically I’m already a Lion on the inside.
What is your favorite quote?
“Broooooo………Listen to the Kids, Bro….” – Kanye West
Do people’s names play a role in the outcome of their lives?
I was actually just researching this the other day (weird). Yes I do think names play a role in who we become. I looked into my name and I see a bit of myself in each meaning. You all should try it. Super interesting.
Chelsa – chalk wharf/harbor
Cheyenne – “speak incoherently” (given to the Cheyenne by the Dakota tribe because although they lived relatively close they spoke a completely different language)
Saaloui – ” what do I care for tomorrow, look at what I have today” (a concept from the Kpelle language in Liberia)
Leiws – inconclusive there are several ideas on its meaning (lion-like, leader, wolf, battle..etc)
Bevel – “having equal alternate angles”, gapping.
If you could witness a historical event, what would you want to see?
I would want to witness Mansa Musa giving out gold on his way to Mecca. They say he gave out so much in Cairo that it bankrupted the economy. I think the image of a Black King with that much wealth and grace would be inspiring.
