"Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white." Mark Jenkins

About Stella

My freelancing journey started in 2014, when I decided to quit my corporate job for a life of more freedom. I have been working as a Virtual Assistant focusing on digital marketing since. One of the perks of freelancing is that I get to travel the world whenever I want to. I can fully enjoy living a nomad life and earn an income at the same time. So can you. Join me and let me show you the ropes!
