❤ Hello, I'm Nadège~! :'D I'm Eurasian, which means I'm half European and half Asian. To be specific, I'm half French and half Chinese because my mom is French and my dad is Chinese. I was born and am living in France, but I lived years in the USA and received all of my education in America. I have a Slavic given name, Chinese given name, and Vietnamese surname. My Chinese name is 婷婷 and is pronounced Tingting. Even though I'm not Vietnamese, the reason I have a Vietnamese surname is because my Chinese father was born in Vietnam, so his family's surname was written in the Vietnamese way. However, if he had been born in China, then his surname would've been written in Chinese hanzi (symbols). I won't mention my surname because I don't want to give out my full name, though. My Chinese relatives speak Cantonese, which is one of the many dialects of Chinese. Unfortunately, I don't speak Chinese, but I'm bilingual and can speak French and American English. I'm also learning Japanese.
I've been at deviantART since October 9, 2006 when I joined as Mokubaluver. Later on I moved to BrotherlyFluff, which became my main account. I've been a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan since 2002, so I've loved it for over a decade.
I love expanding my knowledge, so I often research all sorts of subjects. My favorites include the origins of life, atheism and religions, debates on controversial topics, LGBT rights, criminal justice and exonerating innocent people who are wrongfully accused, rare diseases, jewelry making, gemology, Japan, geography, astronomy, culinary arts and recipes, designing with HTML and CSS, music, psychology, zoology, and more.
I used to be a deep Christian, but I let go of it in late 2009 and became an agnostic. I enjoy listening to atheists and skeptics such as Richard Dawkins, Bill Nye, Christopher Hitchens, Dan Barker, James Randi, Lawrence Krauss, Matt Dillahunty and The Atheist Experience, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, Michel Onfray, Thomas James (TJ) Kirk (The Amazing Atheist), Daniel Sulzbach (MrRepzion), Jaclyn Glenn, Hemant Mehta, Erik (Zaunstar), and more.
