Kenia 2014 1134Dear reader,

I could give you words that describe me, but facts don’t tell so much about a person. People call me Janna, though I’ve always felt more connected to my middle name, Sterre. I’m 18 years old, but I’ve always felt like I was far beyond my years, yet I aim to keep the child inside of me always alive. I’m born and raised in the Netherlands, and however I find myself lucky for that, other places are calling me and I know I won’t always live here. According to Jung’s personality test I am INFJ. I’d say I am open-minded. I think a lot about things, yet I’m passionate and I know to follow my heart. I always try to think positive, and to see beauty in small things. Other cultures have always had my interest. I hope to be able to mean something for others, to create and to see a lot of the world in my life.

Last year I had a long needed gap year, in which I unfurled myself creatively and went to volunteer and travel in Kenya. It also made me try to figure out what to do with the rest of my life. Now I am an International Development student at Wageningen University. I’ve also been learning myself a little (Ki)Swahili.

I love traveling,  photographing,  painting and drawing, writing, reading, being in nature, cooking and baking, both listening to and making music, and Africa, and all of that is what this blog is about.

My soul recognizes your soul

I honour the place in you in which the entire universe dwells

I honour the place in you which is of light, love, beauty, truth and kindness

because it is also within me

In sharing those things there is no distance and no difference between us

we are the same, we are one
