Far out in the sea where the water is very deep, the Sea King ruled the undersea world. In the deepest spot of the sea was his castle. The walls were made of blue coral. On the roof there were shells that opened and closed when the water passed by. That's where the Sea King lived with his mother and four daughters, each one born a year apart.

Everyone has a passion for something in their life that motivates or inspires them in some way.

Since I was a little girl I always liked to make drawings, sketching, paintings, and reading books. Apart from this I was passionate about Sport as well. My dad used to bring the best of the books for my summer vacations, in order to sharpen my skills and invest my time in some productive things, rather than just playing video-games.
