About Me


Be adventurous, be curious, and creative


I am a grad school student at upenn, just moved here from nyc in August.
I have been a back packer traveled around 60 countries in the world, and I love adventures, exploration, something to fill my curiosity, and excitement.


Truly enjoying life will make people around you happy!
