Left six year career in insurance, started a nomadic job as a translator for Tzu Chi foundation, and worked at the best Coworking space in the world - www.worq.space in Malaysia for seven months as a community builder.

Living simply, building relationships and experiences.
Avid minimalist, vegan, volunteer seeking to change her world and herself for the better. I am vegan, I love cooking, reading, traveling, sharing stories, singing and regularly host movie nights/book club discussions.
I judge, and I am learning to not judge as much.
I am optimistic and trusting.
Note: If you are into veganism, buddhism, or volunteering and wants to have a community experience and haven't heard back from other hosts that you like and are in a pinch, you can message me privately.
Come talk to me about how you want to change the world and your world.
“If you have time to chatter,
If you have time to read,
Walk into mountain, desert and ocean.
If you have time to walk,
Sing songs and dance.
If you have time to dance,
Sit quietly, you happy, lucky idiot.”
― Nanao Sakaki
Life's purpose is to find your gift and give it away.
