In the episode Eulanda shares her story of how she went from studying medicine, to teaching dance and owning a dance studio, to being a photographer, and through to her current calling, proving a space for storytellers. She shares how figuring out your purpose is part of the your life journey and how important it is to trust the experiences you have
Eulanda is a true storyteller, she answers every question with stories and examples. She has a wonderful way with words.
We talk about how identities are fluid, and Eulanda shares a life-changing moment in Spain recently that inspired her to reevaluate how she perceived travel.
Eulanda talks about her work as the BAME Executive Officer for the Women In Travel organisation and how that came about. We discuss why diversity and inclusion is necessary in the travel industry. We also talk about intersectionality and intersectional feminism and how we can only move forward with feminism if it is intersectional.
Finally Eulanda shares her perspective on what a good life means, and what her self-care routines include.
