Why did I become a journalist?
I’ve always loved getting to know people and listen their stories. Long before I could read or write, I was doing little “projects” for my siblings teachers. When I started to going to school myself, assignments that involved making news articles and editing layouts were always the assignments I chose.
Networking and building relationships is an amazing part of it as well. Learning how the people are connected in this world is a mind boggling and fascinating thing, especially when you get to see it first hand. Whenever I’m not working on articles or doing interviews, I really miss that world.

Favourite things:
Reading
I prefer real books to electronic books but in this modern day, I own more ebooks than real ones.
Travel
Many things in this world fascinate me and I want to discover them all. Different foods, different places, different cultures. Don’t give me the everyday, give me something new to experience and you won’t be able to stop me.
People
I wave, smile, chat and like strangers. The best conversations I’ve had have been with people I just met. I think the worst thing people can do is fear the person walking down the street. A stranger is just a friend you haven’t made yet.
