About Me


to be a local of the world

I love photography! More specifically portraits and travel photography:) Here is a link to my travel blog where I share my traveling stories through visual storytelling:

You are also welcome to watch some of my Youtube videos: (ATTENTION: these videos are old)

I have a passion for language and I enjoy immersing myself in cultures that every country has to offer.

Love taking risks and always up for anything!

I just love to meet people from all around the world!:D

And that has made all the difference." - William Wordsworth
