There's still a lot to learn and grow and different challenges all the time that keeps me awake at night. I do want to spend more time in my hobbies, my family and also to help the community. I dream of owning a cafe that is also a creative space. Working full time now doesn't allow me to do that, so maybe when I retire from corporate life.

I love to cook and bake, and my family are my testers and when they enjoy the food, that's most rewarding. I love making crafts and anything beautiful and enjoy doing them with my children. Michi my husky is the love of my life! I recently started a garden, so love to cook with my own vegetables and fruits. Couch surfing!!
