I'm Clara, and my passion is finding words to make things simpler and lighter.
Words are natural to me. I twist them, change them, invent new ones. They make me laugh, cry, think, move forward or back. I guess I'm not the only one. Words are worlds unto themsleves.
As a kid, I spent hours writing and translating. Just to understand, have fun, spend time or find myself.
I explored studying psychology and law, but I finally went back to a love for words that never left me.
I studied translation and then, teaching. It taught me a lot about language structure and how ideas can mutate. I learned to question the words I choose even more carefully.
Then, my curiosity for self-expression lead me to nonviolent communication and public speaking. I took singing lessons and tried improvisation theater with its "yes, and..." I went on stage a lot, sometimes to show up, sometimes to hide. Because you can also hide behind your words.
I've also loved sharing my path with secondary school students and adults. I've learned that letting ourselves be seen through our words means being brave and honest. It is such an inspiration. Show up! There is space for your voice!
