Profile > About Me


This section is all about, who else, you! Use it to create a Profile about yourself for people to learn more about you. You may set ANY of these items as either Public or Private. Public means that anyone reading your Profile can see this item; Private means that only you and your Guardian can see this data. You do NOT have to fill out any fields here; you may leave them all blank if you choose. You may fill them out and hide some and publish others. It’s completely up to you!
