About Me



A world citizen who is willing to dovote herself in environmental protection and cultural communication. It's me.

2 sides of myself:

1. quiet and peaceful, perfering staying at home reading books, watching movies, writing articles. My interior world is myself, my soul.

2. dynamic and adventurous, backpacking, hitchhiking, couchsurfing around the world. My exterior world is the Earth, the whole planet.

Age 24-26: moved to South America, made new home in Peru, learned Spanish, did the "environmental science" master study at the oldest university in America (found in 1551): UNMSM. Visited Latin America and almost all Caribbean islands.

Age 28-30: going to realize all my goals on the list of "before 30", eg. drive a motorbike and travel along the "silk road" in Central Asia...

Age 31-100: going to be a global citizen, to build my own career on international relations or environmental protection, to establish a happy family with my Mr. Right (if I could find), to live an enriched life, to go vacations sometimes...

Age 100-...: if I find the Earth is nothing new for me... so... move to the Mars...
