My name is Faye Martinez, I’m a 21-year-old passionate story teller with a drive for spontaneous adventures and a gung-ho wanderer living in the Philippines. I love discovering new things and meeting people with different passions that inspire me to learn more about what else is out there.
Growing up I always admired people who were courageous enough to go after their dream and break the stigmas surrounding society, I never once thought that I could be one of them. I was the crybaby shy kid that ran with the crowd, but as I got older and bolder in discovering the world around me my sense of adventure and curiosity brought out a new person that’s committed to helping others be more motivated in breaking out of their shell.
Through my wandering, my once sedentary lifestyle gradually progressed into a proactive one that involved rock climbing, boxing, and a love for running. Being active is a blessing that helps me be motivated every day and push through my hectic workload with positivity.
I strongly believe that anything is possible if you have the will to do it, I love storytelling and my once hidden dream to write and manage a blog became a reality called wanderingfayemnl.com. Along with blogging, I also balance a full-time job with freelancing assignments on the side, it’s a lot of work but nothing worth having comes easy.
For me, life is too short to live with any regrets. I’m done suppressing my childlike wonder to explore and motivate others to pursue their dreams despite what society says is practical and what’s not.
I’m an avid wanderer that lives a proactive life with the purpose of building the courage to inspire a change. I encourage everyone to follow their heart and do what you want now and figure out the rest later, there’s no perfect time to pursue your passion- there’s just a beginning.
I’m Faye Martinez, the wandering game changer of the Philippines.
