Animal I most identify with:
Favorite Collective Retreat's spot:
Collective Retreats Governor’s Island where I equally love the view of the most beautiful city Manhattan and the 8 Minutes Ferry ride to and from the island where I can take and fully appreciate my surroundings.
Favorite Thing to Do When Traveling:
Being an islander, the beach calls to me . The fresh breeze and the hot sand beneath my feet reminds me that this is nature at its best.
