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.

Fun Facts

  • 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!
