Welcome to my world. My name is Ariela. I am full-time grant writer, a novice genealogy researcher, and an occasional volunteer for a publishing company that uses oral history to promote human rights and dignity by amplifying the voices of people who have faced injustice. Basically, I love stories and people and voices.

In my spare time, write the occasional blog post about anything that piques my interest, take classes through my local library, and if I have time, I say hello to my full-time workin’, full-time schoolin’ husband.
