Stay Humble, Stay Hopeful | Lokai

American actress Ashley Greene was one of the first people I followed on Instagram when I signed up to the social media platform many years ago. If you’re not sure who she is, you might recognise her as Alice in The Twilight Saga (yes, I’ll proudly admit that I was a Twi-hard back in the day #TeamJacob)….

Introverts > Extroverts

Tuesday afternoon, 2013. I was sat in my A-Level Psychology class where we were discussing a new topic: introversion and extroversion.

Change

My Dad always tells me that change is good.
