How did you feel when you were first invited to share your story?
I was honoured and excited.
Describe any personal benefits sharing your story has brought you:
Clarity that I should inspire people to open up to the inner artist inside of them and reconnect with their creativity. That would give people the freedom to create their dream-jobs, charities, feel worthy, share with others, connect to themselves.
Were you helped by the process to develop your story?
Yes, we did, thank you. We were highly motivated with the coverage.
Did sharing help you understand yourself more deeply?
It helped me to see that I am awesome and that I do allow myself to be vulnerable. And that I am very good at accepting help!
Did you enjoy the response you received from others in relation to your story? How So?
Yes very much. It's great to see that others allow themselves to feel beautiful and dance on the beach. It makes me imagine a world filled with colourful art and artistic people! Everybody very happy and confident.
Did sharing your story have an impact on others in anyway?
I hope it gives them the courage to aim for the stars. It worked for me - It will work for them as well! I want them to see that they need to stick with it for years and not give up after 3 months of trying. Keep walking toward your goal like a stubborn mule!
Would you recommend others share their story?
Yes I definitely would, it's a great experience. It's enriching!
Anything else you'd like to say?
Thank you for trusting me and working with me!
