Daniela, an inconsolable yet seemingly tranquil 21-year-old quaintrelle attempting to express herself through photographs and soliloquies currently on a one year study program in China. 

I guess I can say this isn’t / won’t be your conventional blog, for you see, in everything I do pieces of me can be found, slowly exposing my essence wherever I go. This is the blog of a passionate girl that feels deeply and sees the world differently, full of hope and wander.


29/08/2016 I embarked on a new adventure, China – at the time I simply hoped this new journey would bring with it, great lessons and memories. I hoped to grow, become more certain of who I am and the life I want to lead. Five months have flown by and I am ready to begin sharing my findings with you, so stick around.


Hold on! Let me quickly explain what brought me here in the first place, although my modesty levels may be a little higher than some (gravitating towards becoming a weakness!) it is definitely a trait that holds me back when it’s time to share; with a tongue sprinkled with knowledge, modesty holds me hostage, I cringe and squeal at the thought of speaking about myself and my experiences. I hold this idea that my stories/experiences are not worth sharing, as if I shouldn’t dare to congratulate myself for my mere accomplishments when there are humans saving lives!

Contradiction, habitual amongst us all, and I am no exception. Constantly addressing the principle of sharing, yet I cannot practice what I preach. In summation, what brought me here is simple.. story telling and a step towards truly understanding that self-validation should not be suppressed.

Join me on this journey of self-discoverance, let’s travel together and share stories.
