    I'm a small town, Midwestern, white girl of German, Irish, American Indian, French, English ...etc? heritage. American. I moved to St. Paul/Minneapolis when I was 18, craving to broaden my understanding of both Minnesota and the world by forming bonds with all different kinds of Minnesotans.

    My father's family came to the US from the Netherlands in the 1850s, seeking a place to farm because the family farm there would not support so many adult children and their families.
