I was born in Latvia. I moved to North Carolina in 2013. I like sunshine, listening to cicadas, art and design, and true-life stories. I spend a lot of time hiking alone, but I also love to listen to folks telling me their stories in the local grocery store. I laugh at hurdles and look at the humorous side of life.
My mother's words that I constantly hear in my head:
"It's not our destiny. We put ourselves in the place we deserve to be."
