Yellow Star by Jennifer Roy

favourite activities

Hiking! I grew up on a mountain, so whenever I have a free moment you will most likely find me outside. Being with friends, and cooking, or trying new types of food. Reading, writing in her journal, or playing around on my ukulele and writing new songs. 

One fun item on my bucket list

Hopefully in the next few years I will run a half marathon (I just need that little extra time to train a little more).
