Childhood in a blog post:  tyw’s Tiger Mom

Cream Tea

“A girl living her live to its fullest, as she strives to ‘become the change [she wishes] to see in the world.'”

For as long as I can remember, I have always been a writer. A traveler, an observer, a talker, and a writer. A connoisseur – not of fine wines (although maybe soon) – but of diving into life and indulging in every opportunity I grasp. Perhaps I subconsciously believe I am going to leave a legacy behind one day (hence all the writing I have archived to document my life), but I think it’s simply been the joy of self expression fostered at a young age.

I like to keep a pen and pad with me at all times. Whether it is to exchange contacts or jot down interesting facts and findings. The people I have met, stories I have heard, and places I have seen, have sculpted who I am today. I hope you gain some insight from my travels and enjoy basking in my journeys! Bon voyage!
