Maris Pedaja is a dreamer, adventure seeker and climate activist. She is curious about the world and her heart belongs to the wilderness – her close ones suspect that she has a bit of Robinson Crusoe in her blood. She loves autumn, peppermint tea and fresh raspberries. Playing with words helps her to milden the reality and float in between the daily life and magical realism.
