• Why did you start blogging?
I reached a point there was so much to say and share. We don’t always get the chance of being heard in today’s society or to help others. I had faced adverse times and challenges that I know others are faced with as well. I wanted to be a voice, an inspiration, showing that there is life beyond the troubles. I have always been in leadership roles, empowering others that I came across, but the four walls of working in a store became too confined and I wanted to reach out on a bigger scale. It’s a huge task, but given the opportunity to make a difference, even if it is with one person, I couldn’t ask for more and it is for that one person that I got to touch in a positive way..
• Where is your dream vacation?
Wow, either you got tough questions or I’m overthinking things. I can’t name “A” dream vacation and there are many places to see, but Norway definitely comes to mind and Japan.
• What advice would you tell your 13 year old self?
Stay positive throughout the challenges and always search for the silver lining. Some lessons might be tough and are hard to understand, but they will stretch you and mold you into your higher self.
• How many pets do you have?
1-A guinea pig
• Who inspires you?
People who see the big picture and who are selfless in their pursuit of life.
• What is your favorite color?
Mmh, People say that I wear red very well and I take it as compliment. Not everyone can pull off red.
• If a genie gave you only 3 wishes, what would you ask for?
This is the toughest yet, as I can’t think of anything materialistic. In no particular order, I guess I would ask for TIME to pursue all my hobbies and creative avenues. I asked for WORLD PEACE and that we all get along and slow down a bit. To remember kindness towards each other and that itself would make life a lot more peaceful. I would ask to END POVERTY and all SUFFERING, no matter what form.
And here are my questions.
What was your biggest accomplishment in life?
What would you do different if you had to do it again?
What is your favorite past time?
