What is your passion? Every achievement starts with a decision to try, and along the way, with the perseverance to keep going

Thanks to speaking to a lot of people, I am now fluent in French, English, Spanish and Italian and I even learned some Turkish words during a life-changing exchange in Istanbul. However it can still be a challenge to talk to a stranger.

Wherever I am, I go out with my camera and notebook and just wander around. Often I end up sitting in a park or on the stairs of a square, overlooking a city and I wonder about the lives of the people all around me. What life stories could they have?

For me, every achievement starts with a decision to try, and along the way, with the perseverance to keep going. That’s how I challenged myself to start asking what I find one of the most interesting questions to people I meet on the street: “What is your passion?”

This is the beginning of a story of connecting with people in a world we all share. It’s magic when you can to someone and learn something new. So what are you waiting for? Follow your passion, go out and explore!
