My friend Carolina is a badass. I know no other single word that can encompass the amazingness that is Carolina. In her work, she advocates for immigrant rights. She is currently in doing a fellowship to better the world through art. She works her magic on words and turn them into poetry. With her friendship, she has inspired me to become a better person and lifts me up when I lack confidence in myself (as well as many others, I’m sure!). As a person, she is continually challenging herself to do things that scare her, make bold decisions, to make sure she continues to grow. Without a doubt, she is one of the most lovely, creative, kind, and bold people I know – and am lucky enough to call a close friend!

On one of our adventures together, she suggested that we check out Los Angeles Mural Mile. This is one of my favorite finds from it.

In honour of Maya Angelou today, I will leave you with one of her inspirational quotes to go with this mural. “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”


#The100DayProject: Day 1


While going on an ice cream adventure with my roommate in Austin, we came across this mural. We were both mesmerized by it. It looks so wise, like it has seen many things, many stories to tell.

#The100DayProject: Introduction

I feel like words are stuck inside of me. I want to write but have no idea where to start. I recently saw this article on Lifehacker and decided to participate in #The100DayProject to jumpstart my creative juices. For the next 100 days, I commit to post a photo and a short blurb. Sometimes they may go together like peanut butter and chocolate (arguably much better than PB&J); sometimes it may be cacophonous. The point is I get something out there. Wish me luck!
