How do you feel about it? Amplifying (female) voices and telling your story with Marlou Vriens
In episode #2 of the Conscious Creators series, we talk to songwriter, music teacher and choir conductor Marlou Vriens. As a talented artist and a kind human, Marlou teaches valuable life lessons through the power of music. She shows how we can model social justice in our immediate environment, and reminds us that we can both find our own voice and amplify others in the process. Her own songs had always been a refuge, but one day the expectations of others leaked into the bubble she had created for herself, and Marlou stopped writing. It took a few years of empowering other women before she found her spark back, and she promised she’d never let it go again. She recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in Aalborg, and released her album Vəʊkəˈliːz. She’s ready to share her own voice with the world, and now there is just one question left: “How do you feel about it?” Love, Flora In this episode: Go to www.changeyourmindwithflora.com/cc-marlou-vriens for the full list of time stamps and links :-) More about Marlou: Website Instagram Spotify Connect with me here: Website: www.changeyourmindwithflora.com Instagram: @changeyourmindwithflora Inner Circle (free private facebook group)
