Hello, readers! My name is Ruth (she/her/hers) and I’m a first-year here at Oberlin College. I hail from the home of the largest hot air balloon festival in the world. If you don’t know where that is, it’s Albuquerque, New Mexico, a truly wonderful place. Ohio is a lot… flatter than New Mexico, and I’m still adjusting.

As I am interested in ~all of the things~ I don’t have any majors right now, so stay tuned for a healthy dose of angst regarding that decision. In addition to spending time in the science library or 2nd floor of Mudd doing copious amounts of homework, I take the beginning Swing Dance Exco and am involved in a community service group called Girls in Motion. The group provides an after-school program in Langston Middle School for girls, with the mission of fostering trust, communication, and body-positivity through dance. It’s rad! I also enjoy attending as many concerts as is physically possible. If anyone has contacts in the Ministry of Magic, please put in a good word for me. I would love a time turner.

I am absolutely thrilled to be a blogger for the college! I hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to ask me any questions. I can’t guarantee I’ll know the answer, but I’ll give it my best shot. Happy reading!
