Dreams do come true, if you believe in them. 

Dreams do come true, if you believe in them. 


August 31st, 2011, the day that forever altered the course of my professional career. I can't believe it's been 6 years I started MYBELONGING. Having gone full-time only 3 years ago, I am delighted to announce that I will be taking my digital journey to Bali, where I will be co-teaching and co-mentoring with an esteemed group of instructors, digital storytellers and influencers (like my blogger bestie, Stephanie Liu of Honey N Silk!

Before we delve into the specifics, I wanted to take an important moment to thank those who have been with me since Day 1, especially those who’ve taken the time out of their day to pen numerous emails, comment on my stories and dialogue with me. You are the energy and motivation that has sustains me from one blog entry to another. This milestone would not have been achievable without your support and presence. 

That said, I am beyond elated to be sharing my experiences as a digital influencer, content creator and entrepreneur with you at the Institute of Code in Bali! The Blogging Retreat is essentially a 10-day crash course that covers the business of blogging and the fundamental building blocks of becoming an influencer. Each day, we’ll be spending 7-8 hours within the classroom in the wonderful paradise that is Bali. I’ll be fulfilling my role as an Expert Mentor, specifically within the realm of digital storytelling, content photography + multimedia deliverables as well as touch upon the delicate subject of brand partnerships, building a nuanced and authentic online identity. Oh, and you'll also find out how I edit my Instagram photos (IRL). It doesn't get any better than that. Hopefully with plenty of pina coladas and mezcal margaritas in tow.
