The biggest or most important fight you had in your life?
Standing up for myself, setting boundaries, falling down 99 times, standing up 100 times!
Aren’t we all a mix of shadows and lights? What are yours?

The moment you reveal your strength the more vividly?

Everyone has a conviction, a statement guiding our path, what is yours?
Everything you need is within you.
Mind Upload is the beginning of our heroine’s story. If you could augment yourself, what personal abilities would you expand?

Never renounce to: What would you say to your best friend or child?

My self-development and continuous journey to becoming a better human being.
