About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore Hong Kong as much as I can

ABOUT ME

I'm at my happiest when I'm exploring a new place and making discoveries. I'm a very spontaneous person and laugh a lot, and yet I also spend a lot of time thinking and gazing off into the middle distance.

I recently moved to Hong Kong and am really excited to be here. It's probably my favourite city in the world and I'm really looking forward to what the future holds.
