Adventures and Creative Content
Little ol' me
Hi there! I'm Maggie, a 25 year old from New Zealand, continuing to discover her place in the world. I'm a creator - I love film, music, reading, writing, photography, dance, food, travel and experiencing new things.
My goal here is to track my experiences, as well as share what interesting things I might be up to (and maybe create a bit of opportunity for myself along the way). I'm hoping you'll see what I'm up to and get a bit of insight into the things I'm passionate about.
I'm half Peruvian, half Kiwi
I can never say no to dark chocolate
I'm a fan of musicals, sports and many, many films
I'm a twin!
