What do you do and why do you do it?
Making live videos is my way of communicating with whom I like to call ‘my online family’. With time, I’ve also learned that these walks help people that feel lonely or homesick (including myself), people who cannot leave their home due to medical issues, who suffer from social or travel anxiety and stress, or desire to see the world but at the moment cannot fulfill their dreams. These live videos are the closest thing to exploring the world in real life.
