>> From The Blogger
Heya there, Christy Zakarias here, and thank you for visiting my blog!
A little bit about the girl on the other side of the screen, I am a 19-year-old undergraduate who is currently pursuing a neuroscience degree at University College London. Despite living and studying in London at present, I am an Indonesian born and raised who had been living in the tropical country’s bustling, traffic-decorated capital city of Jakarta up until September 2015.
When I am not tucked away doing lecture notes at a comfortable library corner, attending lectures, participating in student clubs meetings, volunteering locally, travelling, or hanging out with friends, I dedicate some me time by watching TV shows, keeping up with (not the Kardashians) YouTube subscriptions, being an amateur musician, and reading, all in the peaceful isolation of my room.
All throughout high school, I maintained a blog as part of my school’s initiative to embrace technology. The four-year project not only illustrated how constructive and widespread the effects of a blog can be, but it also allowed me to discover my passion for blogging, for designing, and for interacting with people of varying backgrounds. It is because of such experience that I established this blog right here, a platform on which I share my thoughts, ideas, and creations in the hope of engaging with an online community that is supportive and increasingly open-minded.
From diary-like entries to opinions on current affairs, entertainment reviews to artistic manifestations, I aspire to share pieces of myself and connect with you through this blog. The acclaimed writer Austin Kleon once expressed that, in addition to consistently practicing, being unafraid of sharing and receiving feedback is just as important in the process of honing one’s craft – I could not agree more. Ultimately, it is my vision that this blog will facilitate and document my journey – and possibly yours, too – in striving to become a better global citizen, life enthusiast, and lifelong learner: stumble, learn, repeat.
See you around,
