Hi, I’m Lola!

First Dutch LEGO MASTER, Ghana enthusiast, writer.

Cancer, divorce, and traveling as a teenager helped me discover and embrace who I am. I now write about moving forward and finding your identity after life-changing events.

I long for a world in which we accept each other, for who we are. With all of our flaws and imperfections, focusing on all of our talents, traits, and potential. Where we listen, instead of judge. Help, instead of watch. Ask, instead of giving unsolicited advice. I see a world full of people who know who they are. Why they are here. How they can contribute to the earth and every soul on it. Live and let live, without compromising on compassion.

My name is Lola – and who are you?

Love, Lola
