About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Dream of be a part of United Nations team (financing the developing businesses)

ABOUT ME

I am passionate about spanish language and dream to live in the spanish-speaking country. I started latin standard choreography and slowly moved from samba and cha-cha-cha to salsa, reggie, bachata.. I've done my first internship to the US when I was 18.I spent time in girlscouts' camp in California.I am in love with New York, since certain time ago it changed my life. I got chance to travel with work and met many nice people on my way. I love changing the people's lives and encourage them to live big.

PHILOSOPHY

I lost my parents when I was a child because of cancer. I still don't follow diets or extra healthy life style but I know always the value of every day spent with the people you love.

The bravest person will take people around them as they are. And make them respect you with a genuine care.

Give out some love and care to those less fortunate not to have a little love from the social environment.
