Create Personal Freedom


My name is Nina Yau, author of The Radical Minimalist and writer and founder of Castles in the Air. I live my life unabashedly through explorations of the human dynamic and this blog is a platform for such explorations to flourish.

I used to want to be normal and fit in, severely repressed by traditional, cultural, societal and personal inhibitions. That didn’t work out so well so I left my corporate day job in order to change the world through a minimalist revolution, inspire positive change in people’s lives and to live life according to my own terms.

Follow me on Twitter as I make my way across the world, beginning January 2011 in Taipei, Taiwan, and spanning other countries and more. This is going to be one amazing journey. Thanks for joining me.
