I am 24 years old and from Germany. In fact, I'm from the north of Germany and so I have the sea right outside the door :)
I love the Vampire diaries <3 and I think Taylor Swift is amazing <3
I think my life has changed in ways that have surprised me. You know, deciding to spend my time in New York, cutting my hair, becoming all of a sudden surrounded by this great group of strong, beautiful, smart women who challenge me and push me forward.
