Background of TELL YOUR STORY:
The purpose of my Tell Your Story series is to foster a sense of community with people from all around the world. It’s a space where guests on my site can share their answers and unique perspectives to a couple of life’s important questions. By doing so, they share a piece of their personal story. My hope is that you, the reader, will find value in this community. Whatever stage of life you’re passing through, whatever is on your mind, whatever you may be stuck on, I hope you find some inspiration from the TELL YOUR STORY series. Happy reading!
Introducing today’s guest: Freddy
What inspires you?
Life inspires me, everyday we get to be alive is a gift. Even “bad days” bring experiences you might use in the future.
What excites you?
Lots of things really, but I guess what excites me the most would be reading about people achieving their goals.
What’s your personal philosophy?
I believe we should always be trying to become a better version of ourselves. We can improve by taking small steps everyday.
What advice would you give someone who is currently feeling lost or purposeless in life? What helps you or has helped you before in these situations?
It helps me to keep in mind that i have survived tough situations and they have always taught me something AND after everything that has happened, I’m still here.
Have any specific books/podcasts/videos/social media accounts/people had a significant impact on you and your outlook on life? If so, what would you share with others?
There are way too many people that has caused an impact on me but if I had to pick something it would be Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories on Sherlock Holmes
Tell me a bit about your story– what is a part of your story (or your identity) that has most shaped you as a person?
I feel being from Venezuela and experiencing being an immigrant have shaped who I am.
What are you hoping readers will take away from what you have to share?
I hope that when they finish reading my stories, they start viewing things with a different perspective.
