Hey loves!

When my mother booked my flight to Hong Kong, the extradition bill had not even been put forward and there was no reason to believe that I would end up in Hong Kong while some of its biggest protests would take place. By the time I boarded my flight, the controversial bill had been put forward and people had already started protesting against it. Since I have been here, the amount of protests per week has increased and the police and protestors have clashed more and more often. Yesterday, thousands...

Hey loves!

I was initially planning to publish a blog post about a book I read, but publishing this post now simply did not feel right. My cousin and I travelled to Hong Kong together last week and we are planning to spend a few weeks here as a summer vacation. As many of you know, I went to a boarding school in Hong Kong from 2016 to 2018 and I became very attached to the city. I have made some of the strongest friendships while I lived here, grew up a lot (though unfortunately not in physical size), learned...

Hey loves!

It's been almost two weeks since I left the Li Po Chun United World College for summer break and it feels really weird to be away from it. LPC became my home in the past months and although I am leaving LPC to go back home to Germany, I feel like I am leaving home behind. At the same time, I did not just say goodbye to my school for summer break, but also to my beloved second years. They're all now packing their bags to go to over a hundred different places in the world. And with them, they take our...

 Hey loves!

The past days changed my entire life... literally! I still can't believe that I moved to Hong Kong, to be more precise to the Li Po Chun United World College (LPCUWC) of Hong Kong. When dreaming of something, we tend to tell ourselves that it is impossible anyway. But things aren't always out of reach - you just need to try. I remember being extremely scared of trying to reach my dream of going to LPC. I remember debating with myself about applying at UWC or not. I told myself that it wouldn't work...
