About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live my life to the fullest, to meet new friends and keep in touch with old buddies, and to travel around the world to learn about different cultures

ABOUT ME

I love traveling and making new friends!
I have embarrassed myself a few times when I was not accustomed to the new culture but everyone just laughed it off.
I was born in Germany, raised in China, and grew up in Canada.
I was studying biotechnology and had a masters in Experimental Medicine. I now currently work in the research department of a pharmaceutical company.

I love music and I play the piano. My favorite composer is Chopin. I also enjoy Rock, Jazz, Indie and classical.

I love skiing and my favorite sport is tennis. I also enjoy hiking and camping with my boyfriend.

My friends think that I am easy-going and caring.

I smile a lot.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is the greatest gift. Live it full with no regrets.

Four random Ecuadorian people came over with their guitars and took turn serenading for me.
