1. What 5 words describe your life?

Unexpected, happy, authentic, full and circular.

I was an under 7 ballroom champion. Cha Cha Cha, tango, you name it, I performed it! 

3. How many 'real' friends do you have VS your likers/followers/FB friends? 

I have maximum ten real friends. Like the ones you call when you’re dead broke or need to be bailed out of prison.

Not knowing. Which means I feel vulnerable every day of my life as you never know the outcome of each day.

I’m a big dreamer, this far all of mine are coming true so there is no point stopping now!

You are the first and last that has to carry the weight of any decision so do not hold the opinions of others in mind when having to make them.
