One of my favorite starters at the freshly redesigned @castawayburbank. This steak tartare wrapped within beef carpaccio is raw beef on raw beef heaven! (Real #foodporn !!! 😂) Such freshness and flavor! Raw meat was never so delicious.

"Throughout my undergrad I found the world of neurodegenerative diseases rather fascinating. Why do these diseases arise? How is age involved? How are they all related? On top of the endless science related questions what else is intriguing is the human component of these diseases. Where does the mind go when someone develops Alzheimer’s? If you subscribe to the idea that your personhood is created from the collection of your memories or experiences, and you start to lose those memories, do you lose the person that you are forever? Can you get it back? In the case of ALS, the human situation is often something that could be written in a horror book, where you lose motor control of your body while your cognition remains unaffected. Effectively, your body can become a prison for your mind to bounce around in until you pass. The field of ALS needs all of the contributions it can get, and through my work for Dr. Janice Robertson at the Tanz Centre for Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases, I hope push the field forward."

Accepting our quiet side is difficult in our modern world, where extroversion is valued over introversion. Definitely a big challenge for many. Over the years I have learnt that my hyper-sensitivity hidden deep down, has led me to have a never-resting-mind. Which can lead to suffering. But I’ve also understood that it does not mean weakness. Being hyper-alert to your environment and to the people that surround you offers many opportunities to connect, feel, create and grow. A life-long journey as far as I am concerned✨
