I can easily say everything I learned I learned from London.  This city opened my eyes and broadened my way of thinking.  During university days, I saw two men kissing in Earl’s Court Road outside the Underground Station.   I had never seen this before in public.  You can imagine my fascination with this public display. Multiple languages, different dress styles and a freedom of expression far surpassed anything I’d experienced elsewhere.

Museums, theatre and even store windows inspired me to learn more and explore creativity beyond what I thought I was capable of achieving.  London taught me to push myself further, test my limits and stretch them to new heights.

The American in me says I can be anything I want to be.  London taught me I will be anything I want and not care what others think.  London touched me at an early age and continues to do so today.
