Fun Facts

I vividly remember begging my parents to play basketball as a kid. Well, after years of playing basketball, I realized that I hate participating in team sports! I now have a new found love for my peloton, playing tennis, running and snowboarding. Also, I absolutely love traveling solo and look forward to getting back to exploring more European and Caribbean countries in the future.
