  • Cross roads. We're presented with these all the time; whilst some forks present more life-changing decisions others could be a daily occurrence; coffee or tea for example.

    I feel like i've reach an important point in my life and I can see the divide approaching. Change is near.

    I've never been afraid of change, personally and in my work, I learn by adapting to change in my surroundings. I guess it's something my parents taught me when my sisters and I were growing up.

    I love my life in Melbourne but for a while there's been this nagging weight on my mind, a weight that reminds me of all the things I want to do with my life, a weight that pokes me to say 'you're not getting any younger Aylin', a weight that screams, do something different and surprise more.

    My decision is becoming clearer. I am ready.
