Two weeks ago I had the privilege to be interviewed by the wonderful Katie Wren from The Connection Club.
41min full of truth, honesty and real talk. I share 100% honestly how my childhood shaped me, how it has fucked me up in some ways and how I then eventually used it to create the best possible version of myself.

Katie: "Have you ever tried to run away from home?
It’s not just kids that try to run away – adults do it, too. We run away from ourselves, our problems, and our inner world. Eventually, we block enough out, we shut down, and we lose touch with ourselves.
Done the right away, however, “running away” from home can actually provide a platform to reconnect with yourself. In this episode, my beautiful social media friend Danielle shares her experiences of running away to India and finding her true calling as a yoga teacher. Danielle is 24, lives in Zurich, and is a self-employed yoga teacher, health coach, and content creator.
Danielle’s story is an emotional one. She shares her stories about the toxic patterns she noticed in her life, how she felt like she didn’t have any connection with herself or anyone around her, and how she finally found her true self once again. She found ways to empower herself, climb out of a pit of depression, and move forward from really painful situations.
Danielle’s story is a powerful one, and she articulates every bit of her experience with wisdom beyond her years.
