I was born in Kentucky in the United States. Growing up was great there. I think it’s one of the best places to raise a family. I have really good memories from home.
I thought the key to happiness was to work your butt off academically and just study. In my society I was told to work hard and you will be successful. I took that too seriously and by the time I graduated with my bachelor I burned out and needed a break. So I decided to live the US to seek something new.
I went to spain and lived ther for two years. I loved being outside my comfort zone and just experiencing a new culture. Just being in Spain I could not just walk to Walmart and buy easy mac, ramen noodles or the instant processed food. That’s when I started to cook more and discovered food.
During my travel, I met people who influenced me to eat healthier food. I was more aware of plant-based and Bali is such a hub of vegan food. That’s one of the reason why I came here.

Our commitment to run this community is simple, that is to provide tools for each member to be able to promote their Bali stories to others. Uploading to their social media and link to their personal website so others can follow the full story. Please see here to view the benefits of membership.
This community has a sole purpose - to promote Bali, more than just a holiday island, but memorable place to live in. From the members' real stories, people can follow and witness how their life improves because of Bali. There is saying either "Bali kicks you out or she sucks you in.
This community was initially prepared for the portal for couples who looked for wedding information in Bali. However amid the pandemic, the website is then transformed into the community of online business in Bali. The goal is to assist whatever it takes for giving opportunity for every people in Bali to sell online. Besides setting up an e-commerce platform, they benefit with our video-making experience
This community is created with one mission - to promote a different value to what most people know about Bali already as a holiday island. But instead, this community empowers the stories of how people chose Bali and how they wish to inspire others to live for a better future. Thus, it invites local people or people internationally who were touched by Bali
