About Me

Hi! Nice to meet you.

 

I am an aspiring marketing specialist student at the University of Toronto. Throughout my post-secondary experience, I have had the opportunity to work and study abroad in Asia, where it continuously sparked my interests for learning about the world because I enjoy of the exploring the culture, food and capturing the rawest moments of every day life. 

 

Goal for this blog: I want this to be an unconventional blog offering anything and everything, from food hunting destinations to fashion and beauty inspiration, from travelling archives to rants on millennial life struggles, and so much more. 

Why I started it: I strongly believe in finding a comfortable space to share our intellectual and creative content, whether it be using social media, videos, blog posts or a good old pen and paper, because life is too short to dwell over past and future failure when all we really need to do is just start somewhere.

 

I hope that my readers enjoy my style of writing and appreciate my life shared in the most authentic, honest and captivating way as possible.

About Me

I was born in Asia, and my family and I immigrated to Canada over 15 years ago. I am the youngest of three siblings and I was raised in the West coast (Vancouver) and moved across the country to pursue my business degree (Toronto). I have worked and studied abroad in Hong Kong and Singapore during the four years of my university degree because I am a travel bug. Learning, exploring and absorbing the different countries and their culture and environment has pushed me to become more self-reflective and appreciative to the world and embrace my love for learning.

Why did I started this blog?

I have always wanted to start my own blog/website because I used to journal almost everyday in high school and a bit in university about my emotions, my worries, interesting thing that happened that day and everything I was afraid to let other people know, I put them all down on paper. I was convinced that what I had to say and what I was feeling was unimportant, invalid so journalling kept me grounded. 

My goal for this website is for it to be an unconventional blog that contains anything and everything, from food destinations to fashion inspiration, and from travel reels to millennial life struggles, and so much more. I know, I'm really trying to be everywhere and talk about everything right from the get-go, but I believe that life is so ambiguous and exciting, even if at times, it may feel very mundane, you can always find a spark that makes life great.

I had an overwhelming number of goals I wanted to achieve, one of them was to start my own website. This has been on my mind for over 3 years now and it was constantly being put off. I also had this confidence-lacking mentality believing that "If I never start, I won't have to accept failure," because I wasn't confident in what I had to offer and I kept overthinking about how if I tried to do something different for myself creatively, I would seem like a narcissist or that I would be judged for what I published. But the truth is, whatever I do, people will talk and make their own judgements. This was a hard pill I had to accept and is still trying to accept, but I realized that having that mindset didn't benefit me but instead held me back a lot because I end up giving myself so many imagined scenarios and reasons to forfeit opportunities that I could have achieved, all because of the fear of taking that one step - to just start and do it.

 

We all need to start somewhere, anywhere. Your determination will drive results and that is really the objective of my website - proving to myself that as long as I start living intentionally and giving myself a little more credit to what I can offer, I can build my own empire, big or small.
