"I think it's so important to be open to new experiences and embrace unfamiliarity. I love learning new things, trying new foods, and being in new places! One of the reasons I made the decision to move to the Bay Area even though I had never visited before was because I was so curious about this place I'd heard so much about and wanted to try a new way of life. In my view, curiosity is the initial spark that starts your learning and growing as a person."
