About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meeting new people in new places

ABOUT ME

A social worker & International Development enthusiast.
I'm all-purpose flour with heightened curiosity who loves so much humanitarian works, traveling, learning languages, photography, and adventures. I'm soft as cotton, pure like holy water hihi.. :)

I pursue knowledge and dreams as my goals of life.

Virtue: Compassion

Passion: Helping people

Subjects: environmental issues, gender, education, and human rights

Favorite Quote: A life is never useless. Each soul that came down to Earth is here for a reason. People who really help others are not trying to be useful but simply leading a useful life. They don't give advice but serve as an example. Do one thing: live the life you always wanted to life, avoid criticizing others and concentrate on fulfilling your dreams. This may not seem very important to you, but God, who sees all, knows that the example you give is helping Him to improve the world. And each day he will bestow more blessings upon it. -Paulo Coelho

See only Love. When I trust in a higher power & behave in line with universal laws, my life flows with more ease, grace & joy.
Namaste!

PHILOSOPHY

You dont have to like everything but at least try it.My reiki philosophy:Just for today don't get angry (be mindful, search where the anger comes from).Just for today don't worry (big waste of time and energy).Just for today be grateful.Just for today be kind to yourself and others.Namaste!Love is not to be searched, but to be shared..

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hiking in the middle of the night with rain pouring down. Bathing in a cold river till I felt numb haha with friends while screaming out loud.
When things done together with friends and people we love everything can be amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

We have strengths and weaknesses.I have what you don't have,You have what I don't have.Please teach me things that I don't have to improve myself.I want to learn the native culture, and how I get along with the natives since we have huge differences in certain aspects like language, culture, even jokes. Help me with this Guru!I share the love I have and what I can do for others.If they're happy, it will be my happiness too.
