VIVAMAYR MARIA WÖRTH REVIEW: DESTINATION DETOX & HEALING

July 2, 2020

When the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) became more alarming over time, I found myself wondering how to work on my health and to strengthen my immune system.

WHAT TO READ: ANTI-RACISM BOOKS TO EDUCATE YOURSELF

June 18, 2020

After weeks of overwhelming emotions, I am using my platforms like Instagram as well as my blog to raise awareness, and continue to fight against racism as well as police violence.

As the #BlackLivesMatter trend is slowly vanishing on social media, now it’s time for everyone to understand, that changes won’t happen overnight. Supporting a cause is not about one week of attending protests and sharing content. It’s about continuously spreading awareness against discrimination, fight for human rights, educate ourselves, and our children.
