We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
2006 was a difficult year for Cristian, he grieved the loss of his mother, due to cancer. A few years later in 2013, at the age of 30, he too was diagnosed with cancer on his thymus gland and had to spent eight arduous months with chemotherapy and radiotherapy

Having said that, during that critical period of his life, he has always kept a positive attitude, healthy habits, vegan, practices meditation and does his daily morning yoga.

Today he is stronger than ever and feels grateful for all the lessons these situations had him exposed him to. He now knows they were a crucial part of his healing journey and his spiritual growth.

What were you like growing up?
I grew up in a family full of love for my parents and my two older sisters. I was a naughty and loving child at the same time. I was sympathetic and I like to be in the middle of adult conversations and I dreamed of traveling around the world.
