So, who’s writing here?
To give you a little idea of myself:
My name is Alexandra, I was born in ’88 and grew up in a small town in Germany.
After graduating from highschool, I went through a business management training and worked in that field for one more year. I decided to leave my company after that year to study health promotion. As I couldn’t find a job in that field after graduating, I went back to working in my old job, for another company though. Actually, I even wasn’t really interested in the jobs that fit what I studied as they were mostly about implementing and evaluating health programs for companies which is not what I want to do. I chose my field of study as I had always been interested in health and nutrition and my dream has always been to help others with my knowledge and experiences.
What is this website all about?
Health & Food
I’ve been interested in living a healthy lifestyle for years and in 2012 at the age of 23 I quit my office job to go and study something I’m truly passionate about. 3 years later I finished my studies with a bachelor degree in health promotion.
Since then I’ve come a long way. I’ve learned a lot about different diets and made my own experiences with different ways of eating, working out and just living in general. I’d been a vegan for almost 4 years, even wrote my bachelor thesis on this topic, but in the end came to the conclusion that I need to go into another direction for different reasons, my health being just one of them. So if you think about starting a vegan or plant-based diet, leaving the plant-based diet,.. I’m more than happy to share my experiences on the topic.
I’ve done my fair share of travelling, a lot of it being solo travelling, and through this learnt a lot about myself , other countries, cultures and people. I’m so grateful for having made all these amazing experiences and human connections and hold all of these memories dear to my heart. I wouldn’t be who I am today without travelling.
I want to be open with you and to share personal thoughts about whatever comes to my mind. I know a lot of people struggle with the same things in life or have the same ideas and just don’t know that there is someone who feels exactly the same. When I read about the life and thoughts of other people and about their everyday struggles, I’m often so grateful to see I’m not alone in this. We are all on our own yourney. We all want to grow, live a happy life and become the best version of ourselves. It’s so inspiring to read about other people’s stories and to see what they do to get where they want to be in life. I hope that the stories and tips I share, are inspiring and helpful for others as well.
