Every person that I have met & interacted with has had impact on my life has made me the person I am today. Consciously or otherwise.
Having lived in several countries around the world has certainly exposed me to a lot of interesting, inspiring and fantastic individuals.
Learning to adapt to a new culture and speaking different languages have helped me see the world with different eyes.
I also believe that the experiences and people that have taught me what I don't like or want are the most valuable (in this context).
You certainly learn a lot from your own and other people's mistakes.
Having children has also opened my eyes. Suddenly I see the world differently. Life as a mother and generally observing and listening to my two kids help me grow every day!
Last but not least, I have had the fortune to grow up in a family that encouraged, accepted and appreciated my creative ways and views. I have never been held back.
I have been and continue to be a keen student of the fantastic world we live in!
