Nakate + @urcoffeebreak = a Story of Social Entrepreneurship in NYC
November 19, 2012 § 2 Comments
If you have read anything about our story at Nakate, you know that I began my own journey mapping out stories and spots on the globe at the age of 18. This came after a childhood full of stories my father fascinated me with about his travels since he had been little like me.
Now, as an adult running my an accessories line that allows me to share those stories, my office and room are full of gifts from my father – things he picked up in the Philippines and Okinawa, Hawaii and Brazil. Together with the carvings and pieces I’ve bought in Uganda, they tell me the stories of our lives and travels as I go about my day.
I am reminded, as I do this, that it is the stories in our lives that change us and create our paths. The stories we’re told, the stories we tell to others – the stories we read and write and stumble across as we go about our daily lives - all come together as a life tapestry, creating the one, giant story that is our life’s journey.
In effort to better tell the story of Nakate, and our journey as a social enterprise, we have teamed up with Your Coffee Break - a women’s lifestyle magazine bringing you the latest on Fashion, Career Management, Celebrity News, Dating and Relationships, Beauty and Travel from across the world. From New York to London and from Barcelona to LA, I am joining other fabulous contributing writers come from all around the globe to give you insight into what it is to live out the journey that is Nakate.
You can follow my weekly column here.
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
