Who is Mrs-Durden?
You can call me Mrs-Durden or Nina, either one is fine. I am your Art Nude, Fashion, and Chat & Forums Community Volunteer.
I'm 20 years old, I'm from France yet was born in Athens, Greece, and am currently residing in the United States to attend University. I'm most often described as a sassy angry French woman, which may not transpire through DeviantART that often, but is actually quite accurate.
I have a short temper, I don't like dealing with people's crap. I'm a very honest and straightforward person, I may seem harsh at times, but really. I'm nice.
I love portrait photography, art (esp. neoclassicism or baroque), cinematography, music, traveling, writing, a lot of things really. I'm a history, international relations, and political science major...if that can tell you anything about myself and my interests. And that's all I can think of saying, so here, look at my face!

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and why it mattersMany of you might have seen your friends dump buckets of ice on themselves in the past few weeks, for what is called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Many of you probably wondered what on earth ALS is, and perhaps assumed it was some sorority thing, or maybe just another silly challenge like the cinammon challenge. But no, this is something very different than what many of us might have thought at first.
Mental Illness Awareness
Addiction is a Mental IllnessOnce an addict, always an addict
