Mandalas from dressmaker

14543358_10154115731929542_316999253_nAfter I created a club for talented women in Aarhus, I am blessed with interesting meetings everyday.

This late Friday story is dedicated to an amazing person Catherina. She is one of the loveliest, funniest and kindest people I have met in my life.

Catherina is from Malaysia, but her family originally comes from India.

6 years ago, on the internet, she met a Danish guy, and they started to chat on everyday topics. Half a year later they decided to meet each other in person. Catherina flew to Denmark for the first time to meet her future husband. This couple doesn’t have an easy romantic story. All this time they had to fly thousand of kilometers to see each other. But in the end they decided, that they love each other no matter of distance, languages and cultures. They got married last year.

8grulxxjx1iMany articles I dedicated to other people.

But on this special day I want to write about myself.

Why is it day special? Because today I released my first book on amazon. And I would be very grateful, my dear readers, if you will support my project.

A little bit about me. I am Ukrainian, who is living in Denmark.

All my school years I was dreaming about travelling, and when I was 19, I found aupair job in Belgium. That year changed direction of my life. I understood how I enjoyed working with kids, I met many people from all over the world and they showed me the diversity of this planet.

Lecture about witch children in Nigeria

Latest-About-Anja-Ringgren-Loven-Husband-David-Emmanuel-Uwem-4Today I attended a very interested lecture in Aarhus.

It was hold by Anja Ringgren Loven.

Anja became international known because of her charity organisations ‘Din Nød hjælp‘ and ‘Hope for children of Africa‘.

I saw a documentary about her and read several articles, so when I heard about an opportunity to listen her speech, I was very exited.

Anja was talking about her life story, and I want to share it with you, my readers.

Anja was born in Denmark, her mother was a nurse, and she was brought up with the idea to help others (‘Life is long, so we have to take care of each other’ – often said her mother). Also she remembers, that when she and her sister didn’t want to eat dinner, the mother told, that children in Africa are starving, so they shouldn’t waste food. So the interest to Africa came from childhood.
