7 highlights from 2017

The end of a year offers us an opportunity to reflect fondly on and bid farewell to the past, while confidently looking forward to the future. It is the time to celebrate achievements and set more goals to strive toward. Here were my favourite aspects about this year:

1. A year of firsts
