About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Visiting at least one new country every year !

ABOUT ME

I'm a dreamer, an optimistic, open minded and terribly curious person. My friends call me yaya ! I like to talk, but I listen as well. I'm a happy-go-lucky kind of girl with a big imagination. Wherever I go, I always carry a book, pen and paper with me. I write letters. They are too long. Sometimes I don't send them. I'm an eager reader and I pay attention to details. I also collect spoons, write lists all the time and I like cooking, mostly for others. I wander and get lost around cities I don't know. It's liberating. Being away, discovering new cultures and places has been the highlight of my past few years. It's fun, life changing and exciting !

I guess I'm just happy to learn from others, experiment, have great encounters and explore as many of the world's possibilities as I can.

PHILOSOPHY

Dare to live.

'A vida so se da para quem se deu', Vinicius de Moraes.
