About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See difference, accept it, learn from it, and hopefully make a change for the better.

ABOUT ME

create your own visited country map
or write about it on the open travel guide

Essentially, I am a person who loves learning, studying, personal growth in general.
Ive studied in a double diploma in Social Sciences and Arts&Literature.
I am now going to be an undergrad in a double Major: Communication Studies and Religion (specialized in Women Studies in South East Asia) with a minor in Diversity (ethics).... A lot to take in... I know.

Other than my education, I love traveling with a passion, unfortunately I don't always have the opportunity to do so...

Being half Canadian (French-Canadian) and half Filipino, Asia is like a second home to me...even if I have spent my whole life in Canada...
The summer of my 18 years, I backpacked Asia - amazing since I have a passion for Asian Culture!
The summer of my 20 (this summer) I plan on backpacking Europe - August 14th to September 4th -.
Summer of 21 will probably be Africa :) :) :) but who knows..

PHILOSOPHY

Stay positive: see positive, be positive and get positivity in return.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Gazing at the starfilled sky in the middle of a fishfarm... in the middle of rural asia.
- Seeing the smile on an orphans face after playing with them all day... in latin america.
- Having amazing friends & meeting new ones everyday. :) They are without a doubt my extended family.
