Ana Ferariu, "Catch waves or do your homework"
Remote learning gave me the opportunity to live in Tenerife, Spain, for 2 months and that's where I discovered my passion for surf and all the feelings and emotions that came with it. On the days I wasn't doing my homework, I was catching waves. Can't wait to do it again!
