I am a 17 year old who loves to cook and bake (and actually understands the differences between the two!) I have a passion for food that sometimes baffles my friends, but they're always appreciative of my desire to try new and interesting recipes. A junior in high school, I fill my time outside of school with the National Honor Society, German club, the school's literary magazine, band/symphony orchestra (I play the oboe), and the color/winter guard (see wgi.org or tcgc.org for info). I love reading, writing, drawing, and Monopoly and am also a firm liberal in a land rank with conservative Republicans. As a result, I eagerly await my 18th birthday, when my voice will finally be heard. In the meantime, I satisfy my political urges through MoveOn.org, a movement whose main focus is to persuade the Congress to formally censure President Bush for his mistakes in misleading the public in certain areas regarding terrorism and Iraq.
