About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Im an easy going and optimistic girl. I believe in making the most out of life and I try to have a as much fun as possible. Also I find that you can not judge something, unless you've experienced it. For that I try to keep an open mind and to go to new places, do new things and to meet new people.

Although I like having fun, I also find it important to take responsebility for things I dissagree with in this world. Whenever I can, I want to invest time in trying to change these things.
