About Me

Being grateful is key! It's quite liberating to realize that joy and beauty can be found in the simplest things, like a starry night, a good meal or even the smell of rain. Growing up, seeing the world seemed like a distant dream to me, so now that I actually have the opportunity to do it, I try to treasure every single moment I spend with every new person I meet in each new place I visit. I love losing track of time having meaningful conversations, laughing about random stuff or just discovering and sharing good music.
