4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?

2. Passion for arts in general.
3. Multimedia&Broadcast Undergraduation.

6. Many late hours experimenting, learning, failing.
7. Some opportunities taken, leading to the right path.

5. Where do you see yourself next?
I haven’t been always like this but I try to keep an open mind about where I will be next. I am learning on how to be more in the present and enjoying it ( without forgetting the big picture ). I am currently transitioning from the need of feeling safe ( a secure salary at the end of the month ) to a state of being available and open to the opportunities that come up even if that means not knowing what my bank statement will be at the end of the month. It’s scary but quite liberating!
