About Me

CURRENT MISSION

East Coast USA atm, West coast from May. Central/South America in June-July. Back to Hong Kong in July/August.

ABOUT ME

Hey guys It's Sean! ATM i'm still at uni. 1 years to go but I've been on travels as much as possible!
- I'm an outgoing person trying different things wanting to meet different people. At the same time i also enjoy spending time by myself :)
- I'm probs a sarcastic person so if you like jokes make sure you're not joked hehe.
- I like photography but not very good at it. It allows me to capture and understand things at many angles.
- I'm kinda a coffee/beer person
- I believe every person, every country, or even every corner of every city has its story. I'd keep exploring them, by myself or by locals taking me to go around.
- It's easy to fall in the mainstream. I always avoid that, and ask to myself what i really want, even i have to beg to differ not to follow. I believe everyone has his own dream. stick to it no matter what.

PHILOSOPHY

Every decision comes with problems. But you can't let them stop you.

Most of the time we screw things up because in our minds there is always a picture telling us what it is supposed to be.

Don't stop doing things you like just because they tell you to. Follow your heart. I always do to myself. Stick to your plan. Dreams are not dreams if you start planning. Knowing there's gonna be that one voice telling you not to do all the time lets you see more clearly.
