How self-portraits empower us!

How self-portraits empower us!



For many years, operating behind the scenes and being the strong woman behind someone else’s success was my most comfortable space, away from the limelight, not being as fully visible as I was.


This is why I was astonished when I realized that doing glamorous self-portraits truly changed my inner world.


In 2019, I participated in “21 Days of Real Women”, a project by Zornitsa (Zori) Ivanova. She worked with 21 “everyday women” to be glamour photographed. She intends to celebrate women through photographs.


I was intrigued yet triggered. The word “glamour” triggered me.

While there was a pull to join, there was a lot of hesitation. Partly because I didn’t believe in the power of a photo, nor did I feel comfortable being photographed. On a deeper level, there was a discomfort to be visible. It felt too exposing.

At the same time, however, I am very committed to my life mission, and this mission needs me to be visible and visible in an authentic way! There was a large and scary bridge to cross, and I better get going with it.


The conversation in the video podcast episode is light but profound as it discusses how self-portrait helps me cross the bridge from success into fulfilment.


And, for the first time – I hosted the conversation as a video podcast.
