About Anouka:

Wonderfully weird in everyway, but loving that. I'm excited to come here and join this community. 


I live and work in Ireland and like everyone one else here am just trying to figure things out.

What brings you to Death Cafe?

Hoping to have chats with you all about this in this community.
