Ambitions She has always wanted to 'see what's out there' ... see it closer than from a telescope in some observatory. When that was combined with her love of computers, she thought she had found a way to see the universe. But then the Borg came to her home world and how she saw things began to change. She still wants to see what's out there but coupled with that is a desire to help protect those who can't protect themselves - which is why she chose service on a starship.
Hobbies & Interests Interests
- Interest in astrophysics primarily with some minor focus on stellar physics and cosmology
- Practices Yoga (finds it calming, helps her relax when she can't sleep)
- Reading - eclectic tastes
- Holodeck adventures (its a new thing)
- Dancing - all kinds
- Drawing - she keeps sketchbooks full of people and places she's seen
- Cooking - a skill she picked up as a means of paying her way when traveling. She thinks it sad that accommodations aboard Starfleet vessels don't have kitchens included
- Learning ... very curious

Personal History She was born on Ramatis III, a distant cousin of minor nobility, which is why she's partially deaf on one side. Her family believed in a life of service, specifically diplomatic service; she couldn't see herself either as a diplomat or as a member of a chorus. Neither suited her. As diplomats, her parents traveled extensively. She was tutored until it became clear to everyone that she needed more than basic studies. For the sake of their only child, her parents returned to Ramatis III and settled permanently in the capital city.

School opened her mind to many possibilities; so much so, that it was hard for her to settle into one discipline. Mathematics and a mind that was good at order and logic and problem solving, led to a strong interest in computers and it was in that field that she focused her studies. However, while others went to dances and parties, she began studying the stars. It was her hobby and her dream to one day see it all up close.
