Updated: Oct 28
On this episode we talk with Yana Kirakovskaya, a Russian Kiwi who isn't a stranger to various themes such as escapism as the way to find your self-identity, the battle between fear and love, interconnection between mental and spiritual health. She brings joy, inspiration, meaning and fulfilment into people’s lives. She works on building strong relationships within communities and helps individuals to unlock their potential to bring more happiness into their lives.
We explore her entrepreneurial spirit, even from an early age, following ones path, different cultures and ways of beings, the importance of being oneself and not please others to fit in, mental and general wellbeing.
Yana talks about her mission of bringing joy and fun into everyday life, rediscovering spaces in the city and bringing people together, her work with Papaya Stories and co-creations like the Silent disco city walks.
