My perfect day is ideally a sunny summer day spent by the beach until the sun goes down, spent with my loved ones and enjoying life as it is at the moment.

Visiting my grandparents abroad in the summer.

I’m mostly proud of managing to do what I love for a living and for the people I choose to have around me.

What movie scene has really stayed with you? And why
The ending scene of the Shutter Island’. I love the fact that there are more than one sides to the story and it allows you to put the pieces together to decide what makes more sense. It’s a movie that you should see more than once in your life.

That would be my loving grandfather who passed away a few years ago.

My loved ones not being healthy or the loss of them.

Narcissism and endless talking about themselves.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would hang out with my friends and family and tell them how grateful I am for each and every one of them.
