I have an artistic family so I picked up the hobby of drawing and painting portraits and landscapes. In the summer I enjoy walks and hikes (especially on Vancouver trips) and in the winter I enjoy snowboarding. Whenever I need a break, my dog Milo never fails to give the best cuddles and tug-of-war playtime. To end off a long day, I like to watch TV shows, listen to music and learn about topics on mental health.
