Astrid van Woerkom

I am in my mid-twenties and live in the Netherlands. My hobbies include writing, surfing the Internet, and reading non-fiction. My main interests are psychology, social justice activism, particularly disability rights, politics, and a bit of health and medicine and anything allied. I have multiple disabilities and reside in an institution. My taste in music is not suited to my age, as I like mostly The Dubliners, The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and Tom Lehrer. I like green apples, red peppers and anything toxic. ;)
