my name is kirsten, it's pronounced ker-sten (not kristen or keirsten).
i've had a really amazing life so far that i am so grateful for.
in my almost 20 years around the sun, i've traveled to 13 countries and will travel to probably 3 more this summer.
i've hiked the west cost trail and will be going back for round 2 in june.
i go to ubc and study something i'm genuinely passionate about.
i have 16 piercings and 8 tattoos.
i've worked at some cool places, my favourite of which was the lazy tulip.
i have a really amazing best friend that i refer to as my soul friend because i swear this girl is the best thing that has happened to me (@zoeh.23).
my mother is incredible, she's also my best friend, and she inspires me and believes in me in a way no one else does.
i have some other really great friends like @caraleg my wonderful future roommate, @katelaurae who always brightens my day, @bbabydi who is one of the funniest people i know, @_sjg who always gives the best advice, and @kkenziethomson my lovely sister.
my favourite colour is yellow because it is the happiest colour.
i am an optimist.
i am vegan firstly for the planet, a close second for the animals, and lastly for my health.
i am learning mandarin, and i know some french from high school, so i am working towards being trilingual and hopefully quadrilingual in a few years.
i like to do yoga but sometimes find it hard to fit it into my day.
i have recently fallen in love with the world of climbing, and as someone who has always had little upper body strength, am in love with what it is doing for me physically and mentally.
if you made it this far in my rant, you now know a little bit more about me, thanks for reading. 💛💛💛
