About Me


To empower people towards fulifillment.


*I'm living some the most life changing moments of my life, and savoring every min of it. I have some beautiful people supporting me on my life path, and I'm pursuing what means the most to me and resonates with my values. So much growth, learning and experiences happening, it's fantastic!*

I'll update this section very soon. Stay tuned.

I'm a creative, outgoing individual, that lives life to the fullest everyday.
I'm very giving, and don't mind lending a helping hand.
I'm honest and trustworthy.
I'm witty, with a bit of sass on top.
I am a lot of things... but most of all a fun loving traveling fanatic. Who wants to learn as much from the world as possible.


If there is any wisdom running through my life now, in my walking on this earth, it came from listening in the Great Silence to the stones, trees, space, the wild animals, to the pulse of all life as my heartbeat. Vijali Hamilton
I am in love with this world . . . I have climbed its mountains, roamed
its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings. John Burroughs
The indescribable innocence of and beneficence of Nature,--of sun and
wind and rain, of summer and winter,--such health, such cheer, they
afford forever! Henry David Thoreau
We inter-breath with the rain forests, we drink from the oceans. They are part of our own body. Thich Nhat Hanh
One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. William ShakespeareYour deepest roots are in nature. No matter who you are, where you
live, or what kind of life you lead, you remain irrevocably linked with
the rest of creation. Charles CookFor the 99 percent of the time we've been on Earth, we were hunter and
gatherers, our lives dependent on knowing the fine, small details of
our world. Deep inside, we still have a longing to be reconnected with
the nature that shaped our imagination, our language, our song and
dance, our sense of the divine. Janine M. BenyusNature is man's teacher.
She unfolds her treasure to his search,
unseals his eye, illumes his mind,
and purifies his heart;
an influence breathes from all the sights and sounds
of her existence. Alfred Billings Street"Do small things with BIG love."Live life to the fullest, no regrets!Lama Yeshe says "Everything we need is inside us we just need to be able to recognize it."All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives....Dalai LamaIf you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.Dalai LamaOur prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.Dalai LamaLove is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. It is not dependent on some other body, some external form. In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love.Eckhart Tolle"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway." — Mother Teresa
