With All The Blessings This World Has Given Me: 2017 Recap


I can truly say that 2017 is the year that changed me the most. This year, I encountered new people, went out of my comfort zone, explored, and tried out new things -- things that I surely won't forget.

December & Blooming


It's December and blooming, and my year is what it is in its time of indelible memories. Recounting my encounters over the past ten months, I can truly say that I have been shaped into a better person that I am today. Through the multitude of responsibilities I've handled, I am more than grateful for the new relationships I've created, the friends I've met, the challenges I overcame, and the people I had the pleasure to meet.
