'When Phoebe asked me to join Girl Planet Earth Voices, at first I was reluctant, since I thought I don’t have one major success story on how I fought overconsumption or how I saved nature and our planet. Then, it occurred to me that indeed, neither I, nor we, do not have to do it all by ourselves. I live my life every day, as intentionally as I can, making it as meaningful as I can - by choosing minimalism, fighting overconsumption and protecting our nature. Every morning I wake up at my own pace and make favorable choices for sustainability, economic health and well-being.
I am fulfilled knowing that there are many women out there just like me… doing everything in our paces and then together joining the global discussion for these challenges affecting women.'
