Blogging has always been something I wanted to do ever since high school. It took me years to gain the courage to start a blog. I knew I was not the best writer and the fear of people judging me and no one reading my posts was the reasons why I always put it off. It wasn’t until May of 2017 that I realized it shouldn’t matter what other people think. Blogging was something I wanted to do for myself. As a current nursing student, there are times when I want a break from the books. Read more>>

I learned early on that pictures were more than just a frozen moment in time. As a kid, my parents used to share their photo albums with my brothers and me. Their explanations went beyond storytelling. For a split second with every description, I could tell they were reliving the special moment that each photo showed. I was amazed by the power of a single photo and knew that I wanted to capture moments in a way that would bring back such vivid memories. Read more>>

I kept the idea of writing in the back of my mind for a long time because even if writing was something I decided I truly wanted to do. Read more>>

There is a lot of fear surrounding the practice of yoga, most of it is born of ignorance, but it is deep-seated. I found myself having to defend the philosophy on many occasions. I grew up in a very spiritual household, with no particular religion at its center. The idea that there are several paths to God was an accepted part of my ideology. I saw no reason for anyone to be afraid or intimidated by yoga, especially after having such a profound impact on my life. Read more>>
