finish my classical singing studies so that i can leave my engineer work forever.
Planting my own vegetables in the garden.
hum...to make short.
I have been working as engineer until 2010, then I create in 2011 with friends and family an NGO to help a school in Gossas (Senegal).
Now still working part-time as engineer, working as volunteer for our NGO, and studying classical singing in Trossingen (Germany)
I had a normal life. A good job, a nice flat, a car, friends...And then I notice, that I don't want this life, I just want to realise my dreams, and I only have one life for it...so I left for travelling. first to Canada, USA, and then Senegal.
