KristenMee about

Hello,

Welcome to my blog! My name is Kristen and I’m 28 years old.
Let me start by giving you some background history. I was born is Philadephia, USA but my family moved to Portugal, Europe when I was 6 years old. Yes, I’m proudly Portuguese. I lived most of my life in Portugal but grew up bilingual. When I graduated high school, I decided to move back to the U.S to attend University. I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Science in Nutrition & Dietetics in 2012, and I now work as a full-time Registered Dietitian. But life wasn’t always easy, in 2009 I was diagnosed with Stage III Thyroid cancer (you can hear more about it in an interview here). Life gave me a second chance and I ran with it.
I started blogging and my Youtube channel  because I wanted to share with the world my passions, my hobbies, the little girl inside me. I missed talking about girly things with my best friend, so opening my own little corner in social media only made sense.
You will find posts about beauty, fashion, and lifestyle.  In addition, Nutrition is a big part of my life, and therefore very present in this blog.
Thanks for stopping by and being part of this project, which I’m truly passionate about.
