I define roots as the values, principles and core spirituality that makes me who I am.

I am sure that when you know your roots, you feel a sense of identity that gives you strength to go through life, which is never an easy thing. It helps me feel grounded, having a feeling of meaning. 

My Moluccan roots made me what I am today. It gave me a warriors mentality and my self-believe that anything is possible in life with the right intentions.

How you spend your time says a lot about your intentions. 

As a creator I spend time on traveling and going back to my roots where I create the space to focus on what matters.

Giving back to the community.

My bags aren’t just bags, it’s a statement with grounded roots.
