“If I were to give my younger me some advice, I would tell her to worry less. I was like a train wreck. I used to overthink all the time, and I think it came from the pressure of studying and everything.

I would probably tell myself to follow my heart more, rather than choosing things because everybody else chose the same.
I had to learn to listen to myself, and not anybody else because nobody knows as much about myself as me. In the end it’s me who needs to make the choices in my life, and it will be me who is disappointed by the choices that I made which weren’t even me.

Everybody around us wants to help, but they don’t realise that sometimes they are just surrounding you with information and barriers that you don’t need.”

About 500 Coffees ☕️

I'm on a mission to get coffee with 500 strangers from all over the world. I want to speak to humans everywhere about their lives and how they experience the world. And cafes are the perfect place for this. Comfortable, cosy, illuminated with a cacophony of other human voices.
