About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I'm 26 years old. I've been traveling since I was 17. I've lived in Canada, England, Wales, Scotland and now in Germany. I love to read historical fiction novels, write in my journal and watch movies. I love to dance, in the past I've done Ballet, Hip Hop and Jazz. Currently I'm learning ballroom, hoopdance, aerial silks and pole fitness.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is what you make of it but everything happens for a reason. Follow your bliss :)
