My name is Aoki and I was born in Portugal. I've always been keen in learning about different cultures so I decided to move to London, the most diverse city in the whole world! Travelling is one of my biggest passions, I speak 5 languages, hence I do it quite often. My goal for this year is to do so at least once in a month! And you will be coming along as I will be documenting all my trips.
One of my life goals is to become a buyer for H&M, for that reason, I’m studying fashion marketing and representing my class as student rep. My favourite designer is Chanel, however, I’m in love with Gucci at the moment :) Although I study fashion, I’m not a fashion freak! I don’t follow trends and pretty much love to wear whatever I feel like. My hair styling is often pretty unusual too.
I also love to dance. Find me a nice club and I will be at the dance floor all night! I’ve learned Bollywood, a traditional Indian dance, and am currently learning burlesque. Not to mention that I’m pretty good in African, (showing off now) Brazilian and Latin dancing as I used to be a performer in a theatre group. We performed all over Portugal.
In my spare time I visit art galleries, museums and fashion shows. I also enjoy documentaries and true life events movie. I’m addicted to sugar so most of the times you will find me in a nice café eating desserts. I'm a philosopher and thinker by nature and I write my own quotes. Helping and inspiring others is my passion. I have two favourites poems which I try to live by: Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson and Invictus by William Ernest Henley.
