I’m answering the most-asked question about my life: How did I become the person I am today? Buckle up and join me on a rollercoaster ride through my journey of transformation, gratitude, and self-belief.
1.WHERE DID I COME FROM?
My background is a beautiful mix of experiences and locations. I was born in the picturesque region of Asturias in Spain, but my parents decided to move us to the Mediterranean coast when I was 10. Growing up by the seaside shaped my love for the ocean and outdoor adventures. However, at the age of 21, I made a life-altering decision and ventured out of Spain. Since then, I’ve lived in various places, but the UK has become my true home.
2.WHAT SPARKED MY PATH?
My path to self-discovery started with a personal battle. At 17, I was morbidly obese, which led me to explore the world of nutrition and fitness. This exploration eventually steered me towards studying photography at university and later pursuing a career in nutrition at the College of Medicine in London. As my skills developed, I began capturing moments for brands, creating mouthwatering recipes, and immersing myself in a boho and minimalist photography style.
3.WHAT ARE MY FAVOURITE HOBBIES /LIFESTYLE?
When I’m not behind the camera, you’ll find me indulging in my favorite hobbies. I believe in dating myself, spending quality time with friends outdoors, savoring delicious food and drinks, and pushing myself at the gym. HIIT workouts at Trufusion in Dubai and the local running club, Jumeirah Johns Running Club, have become my go-to for staying active. Additionally, I have a deep appreciation for literature, the nomadic lifestyle, and Buddhist teachings.
4.WHAT DO I LOVE MOST ABOUT LIFE?
Gratitude flows through every fiber of my being. I sincerely cherish the connections I’ve made and the souls I’ve crossed paths with. One of the highlights in my life was the opportunity to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama, an experience that left an indelible mark on my heart.
5.WHAT HAS BEEN MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
While I embrace life wholeheartedly, my journey hasn’t been without challenges. One hurdle that I continue to face is my ongoing struggle with a eating disorder. However, I’ve managed to defy the odds, losing 42 kilograms along the way. Living with this constant battle has taught me that I am resilient, adaptable, and that life is a beautiful journey of ups and downs.
6.WHO HAS INFLUENCED MY LIFE?
Influences come in various forms, and mine have come from friends, family, and even podcasts. These podcasts, which I consider my true expanders and personal mentors, have significantly impacted my growth. click here to see my favourite thing.

8.WHAT HAS BEEN MY STRUGGLE WITH BALANCE?
Finding a harmonious balance between my professional and personal life is something I strive for. Although I adore my work and life’s adventures, I’m currently navigating the healing process from a previous relationship. I believe that sharing life’s beauty with a partner could offer a sense of balance and fulfillment.
As I reflect on my journey, I’ve learned some invaluable life lessons. First and foremost, believe in yourself and have faith in your abilities. Treat yourself as if you were dating yourself, embracing self-love and self-care on this incredible journey.
