about the author
(ph by Jimena Gabriella Gauna)
Carolijn Braeken graduated with a degree in corporate law and was on the fast track to become a renowned lawyer. She soon discovered that she was unable to use her creativity and decided a career in law was not meant for her. In search of finding her true passion, she made a name in photography, creative consulting and even branding. Throughout her various career paths she kept thinking back to where it all started: with a small notebook and pen, writing whatever it was she was feeling, thinking, and composing her whole world around her.
From that moment on she made a promise to always stay true to herself and follow her heart — and to keep writing through all the layers of life. Her words are honest, vulnerable and raw. She writes intuitively about her personal life, in order to understand and process her thoughts and feelings. She also writes in the hope that those unable to find the words themselves, will find comfort, recognition and acceptance in her words.
