Adventuring with pirates, dancing with indians, and petting all the cats along the way.
Howdy doo. I’m Leslie Stewart, a 20 something girl from Northeastern Pennsylvania. My name is Leslie, but I prefer to be called Stewie. I’m the girl behind such silly Internet Projects as AmIAUnicorn.com, and the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club, which I founded with my pal Emily. I co-run the TheLarpettes.com, a Facebook community dedicated to celebrating the female Larper. I am the design pixie for NEPA BlogCon, a local educational conference whose proceeds benefit the Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge.
What do I do besides run this amazing blog?
In my spare time I’m usually watching wilderness survival shows, Pewdiepie videos, rocking out to music, or enjoying some delicious brews. I love wearing costumes …especially to nerd conventions, LARPs or Renaissance Faires. I’m a huge sci-fi geek. I love karaoke. I adore all things Japan. Someday I hope to own a small plot of land so I can have some cute chickens. My newest projects include learning to make soap and wine. I am, at heart, a bohemian free spirit, lover of whimsy, and adventures. My spirit animal is Phoebe Buffay.

A teeny bit of le History
I was born to two amazing people one sunny morning in Texas… which is kind of boring, considering my mom was born in Salem, Massachusetts and my dad was born in Paris, France… both much cooler places to be born. In my youth, I was about as hip as they come. Do not be jealous of my tricycle. From the days of flowered spandex leggings and fanny packs, let’s fast forward a bit.
I traveled a lot. My dad is retired Air Force, and while active duty, we moved and visited some of the coolest places! I lived outside of Tokyo on Yakota AFB in Japan, as well as near the American Embassy in Ethiopia, a country on the continent of Africa. I’ve also visited Germany, England, and many many states here in the USA. My dream is to return to these places as well as travel to many more!
I have my Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Mass Communications, from King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. I focused on web and new media design. I also studied Environmental Science and hope to someday put my skill as a designer to some sort of environmentally beneficial use.
I took an internship in my last year of school at eBay Enterprise where I began to work full time upon graduation.
