creative expression & inspirational content
I am many things. I think some call it multipotentiality these days some attention deficit disorder. Let me tell you I've learned to use it to my advantage and combine my passions.
This page presents my main interests. Chronologically photography was first. I have exercised my visual literacy and attention to detail since I can remember. This ties in with my visual identity aka style. My mum tells me that as a little girl I would get changed several times in a day. What an annoying child I must have been.
I dreamt of becoming many things and was never that person who had a dream job. There are just so many fascinating things out there! Ok, not entirely - whilst doing my MA in Sociolinguistics, I did dream of being a linguist but then despite getting a distinction for my final dissertation, I decided not to have an academic career (just yet?) mainly because it seemed too limiting in some important to me areas. I also suffered from anxiety during that time which is a story for another day. It's fascinating how much we learn about ourselves through shit storms!
Now, the largest orbits in the Le Béret universe are photography, style, travel and PINK. Le Béret curiously explores the corners of planet Earth and presents outfits in the context of societal changes and history. Here a gentle reminder that fashion and society go hand in hand. Just think about 80s power jackets or berets. I would like to add that I do have some strong principles - I choose style over fashion and quality over quantity. I see no feminine or masculine but fluidity, supplementing each other.
Personal growth is crucial to me. As Anais Nin said, we don't see the world as it is, we see it as we are. And I do believe that you are your own limit. Also that to unleash our potential we need each other. This is why I decided to run PINK, which is a recently lanuched talk-show where you can hear the stories of inspiring personalities. The show focuses on female leaders, activists, entrepreneurs and game changers. Let's get inspired and motivated together - visit my PINK channel.

Lastly, I'm also an Ambassador for 22 STARS Foundation, an amazing charity that empowers children and women in Uganda. Check it out!
