She is a humanitarian at heart who is also a vlogger and YouTube personality that immerses herself into the essence, color and life of each destination she visits, and what makes her travels unique is her emphasis on revealing the oneness of humanity, common hopes and dreams, and that what brings humans together far outweighs differences.
