Experience Is To Be Lived

Reflections on life as a [relatively privileged] minority status collector

About The Collector


That’s me on the right. Hello! I’m not very good when it comes to writing ‘About Me’ things, so take from this what you will.

Ashkenazi Judaism is my ethnicity, race and heritage, charity work is my practice, chocolate is my passion. I’m fortunate enough to work for interfaith charity 3FF, having graduated in 2013 from Heythrop College, University of London with a Study of Religions degree. From a very early stage, I’ve wanted to be involved with interfaith projects and interreligious dialogue, because it annoys me more than almost anything else when people are ignorant about the world around them and the beliefs of the people in it.

My life is a work in progress. When I started this blog, I was religious, although not in the typical sense, and the thing I wanted most from life was to settle down, preferably with a man, and start a family as soon as possible. Now I’m taking time to rediscover who I am, who I want to be, and what I want out of life, and I’m beginning to find out that it’s OK to reject things which don’t work for me anymore and try things that I’ve never thought of doing – or dared to do – before.

This blog is here because of who I am right now in the moment, and who I am is because of where I’ve been, what I’ve experienced, and how I’ve internalised those experiences. I can’t sum myself up on an About Me page. If you want to know about me, read the rest of my blog, because it will give you a much clearer picture.
