I asked some friends 9 questions about how they were making the best out of this current situation we find ourselves in, and here’s their answers. Now we have super-talented Jasmine…
I love life! I love that I have been given a gift that I am fortunate to enjoy doing.
I design and make products of my choice and I’m in a position to share those gifts with others.
My current role is a designer-maker for a company I set up called Kin and Cloth. I also run creative after school workshops for primary school children.
Please complete the sentence. This is a challenging situation that we’re facing right now, but one positive I’m taking out of it is…
…that I have been given the time to make stock, find new ways to build the business by moving the workshops online and above all that I have that quiet time to ask God what he wants me to do.
Please complete the sentence. One thing I’d like to do/ learn during this season is…
…strengthen my relationship with my father and hear his words so clearly.
Also I want to build up a good foundation for the business, so that I am ready for when this season will pass and beyond.
What’s your happy song that always lifts your mood?
Too many to mention, but here are some:
Siriusmo – Liu
Chris Malinchak -Stranger
Chaka Khan – I know You, I live You
Mona Vale- Not Given Up
Friendly Fire – Live Those Days Tonight
What’s a movie/ TV series or podcast that you recommend people watch or listen to?
Again, too many to mention, however a more recent one was Harriet – she stood firm and listened to the most important voice that we could ever hear.
What’s one book you recommend people read?
Ooh, again too many to choose from, but here are two:
Sharon Prentis – Every Tribe
Ben Lindsay – We need to talk about race
What’s your favourite inspirational quote?
By my grandfather – Even if you see someone doing you wrong, always do good (always show them kindness).
Let’s give a shout out to local businesses. When this is all over, what’s a local business you’d recommend people check out and why?
