My name is Kate Alexander. I'm 22 and a stay-at-home mom of a 19-month old daughter named Penelope. I'm wrapping up my final semester at Tulsa Community College for my degree in English. I was on the honor roll last semester with a 3.2 GPA. I plan to pursue a bachelors degree in the fall. My biggest passions in life are parenting, writing, and living sustainably.
