My name is Joanne, I am 21 years old, and I live in a Portuguese town near Lisbon. I have already graduated from college in Cultural Sciences and for the next years I will be doing a Master's Degree. I have a vast set of hobbies and passions. The first, and the biggest one, is definitely writing. I remember writing poems since I was six years old. I grew up writing and my writing skills also grew up with me. Photography is another thing I truly love. I have still a long path to go, and a lot to learn, but seeing the world through my lens is one of the most enriching things I could possibly do. Another thing that I love is travelling. I have travelled through most of my country, and I hope to travel abroad in a few years. I love learning about new cultures, and new languages. That’s why I have a few pen pals from around the world. The thought of sharing cultures and building friendships is definitely what challenges me the most.  Last but not least, there is fashion. I think that what most attracts me in fashion is definitely the opportunity to be creative, while expressing ideas, thoughts, and emotions.  And if I had to enumerate my other passions, it had to be music, cinema, and dance.

Pouring Sentiments was born on 8 September 2010. The true is that I have been blogging since 2008. However, 2010 was a year of changes that also affected my blogging life. Therefore, I decided to start off again. That was most certainly the best thing I could do, and that was how Pouring Sentiments was created. I have never come to treasure a blog so much as I treasure this one. And I am definitely thankful for every single one of you who has stayed around. This blog is nothing more than the reflex of my own journey on this world. I am happy that I am able to share this with you.
