I love to travel, I've been to 8 different countries and I lived in England for 4 months. I have a double major in drama and communication studies.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I can walk on my hands :)
How do you define cool?
Something cool has to be unique. If it's not unique it's not cool anymore.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Trend Hunter gives me endless hours of exploring my favourite things!
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Don't think too hard!
How do you reset to be creative?
I lack creativity in the wee hours of the morning. Get some sleep and your brain works much better!

I predict that I will have visited 8 more countries by 2020!
