About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Labelling myself with Love and Gratitude

ABOUT ME

I'm a small girl with big thoughts and feelings. I'm interested in too many things and usually I enjoy it! If there's a chance to experience music, nature, dance, enjoy colours or a good conversation, I will most likely take it. Or if it's just learning something new and interesting. I love to travel, meet and connect with people and places. Some have wondered how I can laugh and talk at the same time, maybe it's just the pleasure and grace I get from being alive.

PHILOSOPHY

Deus est fortuna, for everything is meant to be, no use fighting why and for what cause, it just is so. Life is full of positive surprises, and the so called bad ones only tell you there's so much good on it's way
