About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Finish PhD and get to Antarctica. Vlog and blog about stories and the lessons I've learnt in life so far.

ABOUT ME

If someone asked me what takes up the most of my time, it would be my PhD. But I'm conscious not to make PhD my life. I'm also an active student of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I play Ultimate frisbee, I'm a truth seeker, and ultimate a learner working to become the best version of myself.

My PhD is about fur seals in South Australia. I'll tell you more about it if you're interested :)

I also graduated with an Honours in Marine Science in the University of Tasmania. My honours thesis was on the foraging behaviour of Australian fur seals. AM I BECOMING THE SEAL GIRL? I love the natural environment. I wish to protect and conserve the environment. That is part of my life's purpose. I want to stop the destruction, and help people reconnect with their roots, i.e. nature. Though I grew up a city girl, I think I prefer to live closer to the wilderness. But I'm also interested in cities, the tech world and urban farming.

I love listening to podcasts. Particularly Tim ferriss, Joe Rogan and Rich Roll.

I'm also a vegan/plant-based athlete. I can cook pretty good vegan meals.

I enjoy sharing and discussing ideas and learning from others. I'm naturally introverted but I can open up pretty quickly too.

PHILOSOPHY
To live in the moment, and to live every day with my life purpose in mind.

Attitude of gratitude

The obstacle is the way.

Be open and tolerant. Always put yourself in the other person's shoes first.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
