I was first interested in philosophy,
both occidental and oriental. I wanted to know what I and the world were, why I was here. I became especially interested in Yoga and Buddhism. I remember one of the sentences that hit me the most at the time:
"Most people know more about anything else than about themselves"
However, given my deep interest in the human mind and behaviour, I also read about psychology. Considering the fact that I could help other people with it, I ended up studying and then practising psychology.

I believe by pursuing your dreams you'll bring meaning to your life and, ultimately, to yourself! As someone once said: "Our dreams define us."
