Amsterdam

Amsterdam. I love you. Especially, when spring is around the corner.

I was born and raised in this amazing city. For 23 years I dreamt away most of my nights in the exact room where my mommy gave birth to me. In a beautiful house, shared with one of my besties as my neighbor, was the most free and happy youth that I could have wished for. Yes, there were concerns. Like when my face got burnt through laser treatment, a terrible medical mistake, or when we found out my right eye had no sight. My youth has definitely been marked by endless hospital visits. But growing up in a warm home, a beautiful house, with loving parents, fun friends, in a city that is accepting of different looking people, has been the soil I grew on and has let me to flourish as the person I am today
