ABOUT ME

Mission 2: leave a mark small or big ...a smile at least...on as many peoples lives as i can as i discover the world!

i come from a diverse cultural background and am well traveled and have an affinity for traveling and meeting people from different cultures having Lived in Africa, America, and most recently Australia, been to Peru and Thailand as well, and have a few more countries on my list, such as brazil, turkey and india for now!

I am Indian by race, Born and Raised in Kenya, Did University in Edmonton, Canada, Worked in Brisbane Australia and now in Montreal, Canada!

I do try and lead an active healthy lifestyle, i enjoy working out, going for a run when the weather is great, wall climbing, hiking, pilates, yoga etc. i practice what i preach being as it makes me a more effective health professional and person

I am up for meeting new people in new and exciting ways and seeing where it takes us, we have nothing to lose.

I enjoy decent conversations and laughter, be it talking about politics to crazy things we have done life, to travel, to learning new things about different cultures and meeting people from all walks of life, to dreams and aspirations in our lives.

PHILOSOPHY

if you put positive energy out there, it will eventually make it way back to you! - Altaf Mapara

Sweat is weakness leaving the body! The smallest drop in the ocean Can start a wave of emotion Genetics may hold the gun, but its Lifestyle that pulls the trigger!

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!

If you’re absent during my struggle, don’t expect to be present during my success - Will Smith

How you treat me is your karma, how I react is mine “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style” ― Maya Angelou

Wellness: The degree to which an individual experiences health and vitality in the three dimensions of their life - physical, bio-chemical and psychological.

Live for what tomorrow has to offer, and not what yesterday has taken away. There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...!

"Your heart is your paintbrush. The entire universe is your canvas. Your life is your art. Dare to make it a masterpiece." -
