About Me

Hello! I'm Vanessa, aka Lefan (樂凡), welcome to my blog!

I am a musician/ artist/ Holistic Wellness Counselor and Life Coach travelling and exploring the world, while sharing the journey and lessons I am learning through my YouTube, Blog, and social media.

I believe that my purpose here is to live a life of wonder and awe, experience the the beauty and joy in ordinary moments, and allowing them to be expressed through music, art, and movement.

My hope is that by allowing the fire inside my heart to burn brightly and sharing the process, I can pass the torch onto you,

so that you can also go and find what lights the spark in you, find joy in the ordinary, and let that be your medicine.

Learning how to sail and going on a multi-day sailing adventure has been a dream/life goal of mine since I first stepped foot on a sailboat. I love the idea of being out on the water, swaying with the ocean, far away from city lights, and exploring new place...
