What quote inspires you most?
"To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you live life enough that you want to enhance it with beauty." ~ Osho
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
If I could travel anywhere in the world right now I would go to Tulum, Mexico then Bora Bora or Dubai and also the Maldives.... I can't decide but these are my top 3.
What advice would you give to women who are nervous about traveling alone?
If you only focus and do things you're good at, you will never learn; if you never go, you will never know.
The most important thing I would advise is a quote; "If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone." ~Maxwell Maltz
What's your favorite thing about traveling?
My favorite thing about traveling is the opportunity to discover new places and also fulfilling my goals. I love being in new places and also trying new things.
What's something people would be surprised to know about you?
Something people would be surprised to know about me: My main goal in making international friends is to get a chance to visit their countries and stay at their places while I discover their countries
