I've gone through phases
  1. Ages 4-7: The Princess Phase
    Call me Odette
  2. Ages 7-11: The Nickname Phase
    Call me Alex. Alexandra is just too long. Alex obviously stuck but I also considered Alexa, Lexie, Alexis and Sasha, the Russian nickname for Alexandra.
  3. Ages 11-18: The French Phase
    Call me Natalie. I studied French during high school and thought this name was super pretty
  4. Ages 19-22: The Arabic Phase
    Call me Amira. Studied Arabic and loved (still love tbh) this name
  5. Ages 23-24: The Boring Phase
    Call me Alex. I'm pretty fine with my name the way it is
