My name is Kristina, and I joined postcrossing while I was living in Uganda in 2009. Now, I'm back in the USA and still enjoy getting cards from around the globe. I'm pretty creative, and (when I have time) I love making my own cards from random scraps: old calendars, artwork, that kind of thing.
I'm an English teacher working with international students from around the globe; I also train other English teachers in a master's program; and now I'm working on my doctorate in Educational Linguistics, focusing mainly on how languages are learnt and taught. Things I like: learning new languages, learning about and experiencing other cultures, meeting people and hearing their stories, laughing, writing, reading, dancing in the moonlight, and drinking tea.
I'd love to get any kind of card, especially anything random, eclectic, or home-made. Draw me a picture, take a photograph, paste a piece of your hometown newspaper to a card. Or just send me a regular postcard: I like those too. (I'm not really into religious holidays, especially christian ones -- why not send those cards to someone else who will actually enjoy them?)
Tell me something interesting about yourself: your favourite childhood book, your dream job, a little known secret, your favourite word, anything. US postcrossers, I'd love to hear about actions you're involved in to resist intolerance, bigotry, and discrimination (including that perpetrated by our current regime)!
I look forward to receiving your postcard and learning a bit about your corner of this vast and interesting world!
