About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be the change you want to see in the world!

ABOUT ME

I want to experience as many different cultures as possible...and if possible, discover my life calling. I love spontaneous...I love meeting new people and being out of my comfort zone...I love good food..I love good wine... I'm happiest outdoors...I love a new challenge. I want to experience all the magic this world has to offer! I believe that a good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge!

"I was born with an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give" -Audrey Hepburn-

PHILOSOPHY

"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson -
