First I was born. Then I discovered how much happiness a splash and slip through the water can give so by the time I was 8, I had already fallen in love with swimming. At sixteen, I ascertained that exploring and caring for the human body was pretty interesting and I thought to myself why not become a Doctor. I casually sauntered through the following years and at 21, came across “The Office”: a show so hilarious I’d ache from laughter. Wine also became a little too sweet and vacations severely alluring. I’m currently 23 and all I can think about is taking a stroll through the gorgeous streets in Rome as I soak up the atmosphere and admire the elegance.
