25 Feb 9 FACTS ABOUT ME
Hi friends, I’m Joëlle! There are some new faces around here, so I thought I would re-introduce myself!
1.I am a Domestic Violence, and Melanoma survivor.
2.I am 29 and I was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany and then came to New Jersey in August 2010 as an AuPair. I intended to stay for only one year, but 9 and a half years later I’m still here. My parents, brother and best friend still live in Germany.
3.I’m German and French – German is my native language, and I speak some French (it’s hard when you don’t practice!).
4.I have an Associates Degree in Communications, and am currently attending Rutgers part time to finish my Bachelors Degree in Communication, specializing in PR, and doing a minor in Digital Communication, Information and Media.
5.While finishing my Bachelors part time, I’m working full time (48hrs) as a personal assistant / caregiver during the week.
6.My favorite TV show is Friends!
7.My motto is: If you can’t do it with passion, don’t.
8.I have a rescue cat, and his name is Batman, and he’s the coolest.
9.My mission is to inspire self-empowerment and mindfulness through a visual narrative of lifestyle driven content (specifically fashion, beauty and travel). I also want to raise awareness about domestic violence and hope that by sharing my story it can become a page in someone elses’ survival guide.
I would love to learn more about you, comment one thing about yourself 🙂
