24 year-old Canadian living in Washington D.C. currently working while saving money to attend Graduate School. I'd like to become a librarian / archivist, we shall see!
As my seventh grade history teacher best put it, "history is one big soap opera". History has always been my favorite subject, and Tudor England will always hold a special place in my heart. Besides the Tudor Era and the Reformation, I'm also interested in American history, early Canadian, women's history, World War I, history of science, art history, the list kind of goes on and on really! I also enjoy literature (my double major in college with history), love reading books, watching plays, films, movies, etc. And art, I love art, mostly for aesthetics rather than trying to make it myself. I admire people who make art, especially under extraordinary circumstances or time periods. Definitely admire women artists.
She was the highest paid painter in the Tudor Court at her time (she earned more than Holbein or Horenbout)
Portrait of her three sisters (Lucia, Minerva, and Europa) playing chess, reminds me of my sisters and I growing up (only we didn't live in Italy wearing such awesome threads! :P)
Of course, Boudica!
Kristina Vasa, Queen of Sweden,
if I had a hero it would be her!
Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz, awesome poetess, before becoming a nun
