I have an endless desire to create. It’s something I (almost) never tire of. But I struggled to find the place that felt “right” for me to create and share my thoughts, content, and ideas on. This is when the idea of creating my own space came to mind. The creating of Leona, this online space completely my own, will be my outlet to write about my curiosity about life, people, and travel. I’ll share insights and stories about my international life and the way I see the world.
I hope you enjoy reading, as much as I enjoyed creating.

My three favourite things to write about, which are three pretty grand categories: travel, life, and being human. On my platform here, my goal is to share stories, experiences, and happenings, both big and small, relating to the people I meet, the places I see, the way life happens on a day-to-day basis and the logistics behind it all: being human – talking about things that make us connected, the things that make us feel 100% alive.

I hope to both inspire and connect others through the topics I write about and the stories I share, while simultaneously working hard to establish my own creative, online space where I feel comfortable to exist as myself.
