i'm in love with earth and its beauty. i've never been good at hiding my emotions, they always get so loud and overwhelming so i clumsily embrace them and accept how passionate i am about every human being in this world. i fall in love daily and get moved by strangers' kindness. going back to paris, my hometown, was deeply refreshing. at first i honestly thought there was no way i could attend this huge photographers' meetup because of how pressuring and nerve-wracking my internship at the hospital was but somehow, i just let go of everything that was holding me back. responsibilities, false excuses, doubts. i packed my things and recklessly left. the urge to live is so deep-rooted it takes me to such bizarre yet wild adventures. i find myself exploring new countries and being stronger than i thought i'd be. braver than what people used to think of me. probably a bit crazier too. going to germany and austria last summer was a real eye-opener for me. backpacking across italy in late february was so spontaneous and i absolutely adored the thrill of not knowing what would happen. i'm looking forward to my next trip in a few weeks. heading to paris is not so wild but it's definitely a unique experience. last year i was lucky enough to get to know incredible people and we became such good friends. they taught me so much about myself and they truly changed my life for the better. coming back to them was surreal. i could feel the intense, beautiful growing connection between us all. it's really magical how photography brings us closer. we spent four days together, taking endless photographs of each other, smiling, daydreaming, laughing until we couldn't breathe. every single person i got to meet in paris truly warmed my heart and this is why i meant to create this video. it's my silly way of thanking you all for making me feel so genuinely happy. for being the best friends i could ever ask for. for being magicians and allowing my low self-esteem a much-needed break. for being extraordinary. i love you and miss you all dearly.
