to meet new people...to learn from others...to expand my horizons...cultivate long lasting freindships across the globe
simply put, i am one of a kind...take me as i am, and i will do the same. i am a free spirit and like to live my life like it's my last day...i am really frightened by the fact that i will die and not get to explore many parts of this world. i like learning about other cultures, people, languages, etc. i am very down-to-earth, spontaneous, adventurous, and like to party...a lot! i also know when to take care of business...i know that in order to get to where i want to be in life, i need to work hard for it...i know this first handedly...i am the product of immigrant parents who fled their native country for a better life for their children. i have seen them struggle day in and day out...taking menial jobs and working 14-hour shifts to put a roof over our heads...this has taught me to work hard for what i want and to not complain along the road. at the moment i am repaying them by working towards my bachelor's at the university of california, berkeley...after that i plan to work in the consulting field and later work towards my mba...be on the look out for me, i'm planning on opening a night club...premier, top-of-the-line, multiple floors, fully stocked bars, dancers, VIP rooms, the whole nine yards! need to know more? ask...i'm an open book.
i know i'm here for a reason...i haven't found it yet, but i am learning great things along the way. lately i've been doing a lot of soul searching and i feel like the pieces to the puzzle are coming together...however, the picture is still small and can't wait to see the final product..been through a lot in life to look back in the past...i just look at what's ahead...sure, i learn from my past, but i don't hold on to it.
