Journey of a Lifetime

This is my journey, a journey of a lifetime. Here you can witness the most significant events that have shaped my life (listed below in chronological order). From the first split to the first competition, from school to university and beyond, from being a student to becoming a teacher and researcher, from the past to the present... The bottom line is this, life flies, so take your chances, follow your heart and passions, make the most of it while concentrating on the things you love, and enjoy every moment! Above all, do not give up on your dreams!
