Rinella Rioda

Hi!  

I am Rinella Rioda and I am living in Malmö, Sweden.


The year was 1967 when my parents told me that we would move home to Sweden.  Yes, home for my parents but not for me.  I was born in Stockholm , my mother was Italian and my father Swedish.  When I was one year old, we moved to Japan and lived there for seven years.  Japan was like a beloved mother to me who lovingly embraced me.  So, the message that i Would be forced to abandon my beloved Japan was very painful for me.  


Despite this and the difficulties I had due to the fact that I could speak Italian, Japanese and English but not Swedish, I was able to integrate into Swedish society, understanding in my adulthood how difficult it is for immigrants to settle in another country, with another culture and another language, I dedicated myself to work as an educator for immigrant women and parents in Eslöv City, Sweden. 


Another of my great passions is working as an inspirer for elderly women.  My mission is to inspire  women 50+ to see the greatness of all life experience they have so she can take advantage of it and fully enjoy her life and be, in the same time, a source of inspiration to her surroundings.  Through workshops and study circles I inspires elderly women to own their self-worth and vitality.  As a mature women, she gives the permission to put herself in the center and passionately enjoy the third act in life and flourish for herself and the world.  


My premise is "If I Can Inspire a Woman to see the greatness of owning their age then I have succeeded".

Welcome to my social media

Eira Malmros Manfrinato

My name is Eira Malmros Manfrinato.


 I was born and raised in Malmö, a city I really love and always miss if I am away for too long. I grew up in a loving household with two languages and cultures; Swedish and Italian. I am currently working at (the?) International Women’s Association in Malmö, with various projects that support foreign born women in Sweden in different capacities.


Growing up in the multicultural city of Malmö and being mixed myself, I developed a fascination for diversity and the relations between cultures. This lead me to study International Migration & Ethnic Relations at Malmö University and later Social Pedagogy, to be able to further develop my skills in Social Work. I worked with unaccompanied minors during my years in university, and now I feel very lucky to work with women’s rights, as well as their inclusion and participation in society. My mother and grandmother have always been inspirations of mine regarding female empowerment and independence. They are the proof of how strong, wise and capable women are.


I have been competing in gymnastics and vaulting for many years. As an adult, dance came into my life, I love to dance both salsa and bachata. Dance for me is a way to express emotions, share joy with others, and to heal and grow. I also love to teach others how to dance, so we can all share that joy together.


I believe in the importance of loving ourselves, both the body and soul, finding acceptance, listening to and learning from each other, cooperating and daring to fight for what is right; both the big and the small things in life.​


Regards, Eira!

Sandra Opazo

Hi!


 My name is Sandra opazo, originally from Chile. I came to Sweden 34 years ago. Has worked in the school world for about 16 years, of which recent years in adult education. 


 Through those years I’ve met women and men from different cultures and ethnicities with dreams and visions. To accompany them on their journey, listen, help, guide and educate has been an incredibly rewarding journey and development for myself as a woman. 


Giving back what my mother and I once got back in time when we came to Sweden helping others to find a place in society.  I see as overthrowing the profit I made in my new homeland.


Big regards!  Sandra.

Get to know  Susanne Jarlskog

Hi! I am Susanne Jarlskog!


I am a trained coach (ICF certified) and through coaching and conversation counseling I often help people who are stuck in life. It can be about being stuck in a bad relationship, losing motivation at work, or lacking energy and stamina with everyday life. Others feel bad because of stress, that they have a bad self-esteem or self-confidence, or they have simply lost faith in themselves. We have many fears that prevent us from letting go, from moving on, from feeling good. Our self-image and attitude are related to our inner voice, how we talk to ourselves and others.


What prevents you from reaching your goals, getting where you want to go? Is it your old habitual patterns that set the hook? Unfortunately, we are all programmed from childhood, for better or worse.

Ä Since my childhood I have supported and helped my friends. It has always been natural for me to listen, encourage, coach. During my professional career, I have worked with advice in health, wellness and interior design, both privately and in companies. Fifteen years ago, it felt natural for me to train as a coach.


From my own experience, I know that when we follow our heart and listen inward, magical things happen. It is in the power within us that we find the ability, strength and courage to live the life we ​​desire and feel the best of. I help people with that! I am passionate about inspiring and supporting people in daring to live their lives to the fullest.

Get to know  Carina Notivoli

Hi! 

I am Carina Notivoli. Mother of three sons, nurse and artist.  My life, as I suppose everyone elses too, has been an adventure.  


I was born with father unknown and a story that involved trauma, addiction and mystery.

All I knew as a child was that my father was called Jesus, and already as a small girl I decided I was going to find him, which I did.


In search for truth and life I ended up in Malaga, Spain as a young woman studying at a private language school and at the University for foreign exchange.


I took my exam as a nurse 1996, and have been working as a nurse in different departments ever since.

In search for meaning, purpose and truth I have searched in many different forums and traditions. I tried politics through a feminist political party and was a member of a orthodox christian church for two years just to illustrate my broad search.


I also survived an emotionally abusive relationship.

Just to find out that truth is mainly found within, but is accessed easier in relation to outside, and that my expression has to be mainly an artistic one.


I have been writing all my life as a way to put my thoughts down and a form of self therapy.  Many notebooks and diarys has been thrown at the dump through the years. It was first last year I realised I wanted to be a storyteller.  A writer.


I am publishing my first novel in june through ”Lassbo förlag” . It is the first in a series of three books called ”Alma Mater”, where the first book is called ”Dad where are you?”.

I am also writing a screenplay. I dare dream that my story will become a movie one day.


I believe that we need to be our own heroes in life. To take our stories at hand and create our own myths. The world is made through stories, and as long as we live from the old ones we can not create what is needed for a new world to unfold.


My vision and dream is that every human being, especially women (since I know something about how hard it can be to be a woman in this world) is brought to a safe place, where their basic needs are met and for everybodys right to be free and express themselves, and Love whoever one wants. And from that place I want every woman to go wild and create their story just the way of their dreams. That is the kind of empowerment I want to see. And it will benefit all. As a mother of three sons that is really important to me. I do not want to see my sons suffer from our old stories about the world.


I also write poetry and paint, which is an area I hope to explore more.

Get to know  Louise Hävre

Louise Hävre.  Born 1962 in Risinge in northern Östergötland, grew up outside Falkenberg.


When my brother died ten years ago, he left a brush and the gift to paint for me. He was not a famous artist but had talent. I began to paint myself out of grief and I clearly felt that I wanted, and hopefully could, share with people who are having a hard time.


I mostly paint in oil and acrylic in my studio on northern Öland. I work a lot with the feeling and let the image grow by painting layer upon layer and take advantage of the image that fades in the painting. The purpose of my art is to reach out and convey above all harmony and joy. My hope is that the viewer will be able to make a journey into the image and be able to see through their own imagination what is happening in the image. I also want the viewer to experience a tension such as a secret in reality.


From those who have looked at my paintings, it has been expressed that they move between the small world of quantum physics and the large universe.


I focus on parts that highlight the message and tone down the other. My art is more abstract expressionist, more imaginative than abstract art usually is. It is difficult to find artists who paint in this genre. Today I also added painting on leaves from banana trees that Tibetan monks have trampled on for three years to get a papyrus leaf. There is a lot of life in these paintings as the structure is a bit uneven.

Get to know  Raquel Papalardo

My name is Raquel Papalardo. I was born and live in Argentina, in Buenos Aires. Since I was little I dreamed of being a teacher, finally I decided to be a Geography Teacher, specialist in Environment and Sustainable Development.

After 20 years as a teacher in different institutions and different educational levels: initial (3-6 years), primary (6-12 years), middle (13-18 years) tertiary (adults), and at the University.


Then I ventured into school conduction for another 20 years and directed a shift at the middle level of the Mariano Acosta school founded in 1874, at the beginning of the Argentine National Organization, a leading institution in the training of male teachers, with which its mark it was the patriarchy.  At the end of my teaching career I culminated in it as Rector.


I have always been committed to defending the rights of education workers and the rights of children and adolescents. I had to fight a lot together with the community and the Union of Education Workers' union, a member of CTERA, against the neoliberal government of the City of Buenos Aires that ruled from 2007 to the present, however the National and Popular Government From that moment, it allowed the school to advance in numerous projects and rights.


Difficult to explain in a few lines what was done together with a community committed to the public. With my direction we built the 19th century school, which due to malpractice was uninhabitable because a ceiling had fallen. With the struggle of all of us, we set up this palace school: student teachers, families and the union.


The fight was constant for scholarships, for resources for school operations, for restoration, for the opening of other spaces. All efforts were made for the benefit of the community in the face of the inaction of a government of the City of Buenos Aires responsible for our school.


With the community we started hugs the school, the students took “shots” of the institution, with the legal consequences towards me and persecution, community marches with the UTE Union. We finally managed to open the Julio Cortázar theater, the initial level and the school radio, always with the support of the National Government.


We also develop the plans and curriculum established by the National and jurisdictional Government and we also carry out 25 projects at all educational levels. The school was transformed into a space that spread education and culture: night of museums, opera, theater, choral events, visit of personalities among them the President of Mothers of Plaza de Mayo Estela de Carlotto, Professor Nita Freire wife of Paulo Freire , the Brother of Che Guevara and many others.


With a lot of effort we arrived with cultural activities to the neighborhood and the country. We continue and start solidarity, pedagogical and cultural trips to the border with Chile and to the north of the country. We also started the opening with our brother country Brazil pedagogical exchanges.


Unfortunately after everything done with the community, the Government of the City of Buenos Aires stopped me from my duties because of my age. They argued that I should withdraw, without prior report, on Friday, June 30, 2017.

It was the moment of my retirement, with a lot of pain, with everything to give and with a lot of desire to do.


Today from different parts of society the fight continues, for the rights of the most humble, for the inclusion in education of the weakest and for respect for the environment.

Best regards

Raquel.

Get to know  Annica Sörén

Hi!


My name is Annica Sörén and I’m an amateur photographer. I’ve been interested in pictures as long as I can remember and I got my first small camera when I was ten years old. Over the years I’ve had a few cameras, but nothing fancy or really good.


But when I signed up for a course at Biskops Arnö in 2016, learning the basics in photography, I bought a system camera, a Canon. And that was a like opening a new door.


I began to use my camera in a new way and I brought it with me everywhere. Soon after that I invested in a new lens, a macro. And that opened another door. Suddenly I could go really really close and shoot details in a completely new way.


My photos mainly consist of nature; water, sky, greenery and animals/insects. The light is a major part in photography and quite often I just grab my camera, jump into my boots and run out to catch the light after a heavy rain or a sudden change of weather. My camera is my passion and it makes me feel both free and happy.


I would be honored if you would like to follow me on Instagram.  My account is annicasoren.

Welcome!

Best regards

Annica

Get to know  Klara Leger

Hi!

 my name is Klara Leger and I am a trained behavioral scientist with a bachelor's degree in psychology. 


I run the Youtube channel "Klara Leger" where I make videos that focus on destructive relationships and narcissism. I started my channel after I myself came out of a destructive relationship. I felt alone in my experiences, feelings and thoughts and finally decided to use my knowledge and my experiences to help others in similar situations.


The goal of my channel is that others should not feel alone like I did. Also that more people should find easily accessible information about early warning signs, mental abuse and about narcissism. 

I hope that my work can inspire more people to dare to take power over their history, to dare to share their experiences and that more people dare to talk about what counts as something taboo in society.


Warm greetings,  Klara.

Get to know  Paulina Rosson

Hi!

I am a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer with extensive experience in various dance styles. I have trained internationally for most of my life.


I also work as a fire artist in the group Pangea Performing Arts, where we use various artistic expressions to create magical performances that touch and inspire.

For me, dance is the best medicine for the whole body and for the soul.


I see a great need in the world to get in touch with our bodies, teach us to love and respect them.


In recent years, I have focused mainly on Oriental Belly Dance and studied more deeply about the culture, history and politics, mainly in the Middle East and North Africa.


Oriental Belly Dance has a strong focus on the feminine power, on the pelvis and the uterus. 

These are 3 points that have an enormous potential of vitality and creativity but have had a shameful weight during a large part of our history. Seeing people become freer in their bodies is one of my biggest driving forces.


Another important inspiration for me to continue my education and work with dance styles from the Middle East and North Africa, is that I want to help spread the rich and diverse culture and history from this large area of ​​the world.


Warm greetings,  Paulina.

Get to know  Katja Munk Brandt

Hi! 


There are a number of things in life I am a little extra passionate about! It is partly to help people

to find their "thing".  So what I want to do with my life is to help people find theirs inner motivation and partly to create sustainable and creative workplaces.


After many years of experience from various leadership positions, I have gained the insight that peoples

psychological security at work is crucial for businesses to achieve their goals. 


When we as employees and managers feel safe in the workplace, when both the physical

and the organizational work environment works, we can be creative, enterprising, innovative

and inspiring in our workplace. That's when we feel best, have fun at work and

creates results. This is where the feeling of flow is made possible.


I am a behavioral scientist with a & quot; Master in Adult Education & amp; HR Development & quot; from

Roskilde University of Denmark, Dipl. Conversation Therapist, Dipl. Stress Coach, Dipl.

Mindfulness instructor, trained in MI (Motivational Conversation) and certified at DiSC

Behavioral Style Analysis and Driving Forces. But above all, I'm curious about you! What can

I help you with?  


If you want to find your "thing" and inner motivation through individual coaching, hear one

lecture on motivation or create a winning team, get in touch with me.


Warm greetings,  Katja.

Hello!


My name is Christina Tånnanders.

I live with my husband in a village called Illstorp, Österlen.

I have 3 grown children and 2 wonderful grandchildren.

I work as a janitor.


My interest in candles began with stumps and milk cartons that my children and I poured in and a little something else we found.


Then I continued to cast a little on a small scale.

Fifteen years ago, my friend lured me to various markets to sell the candles. And it was great fun.


So I continued to cast candles and bought new molds.

Now I have developed a casting and sales room in the basement of our house.


In 2017, I opened up my little hobby. Many have been here, I send packages of candles, and I make candles to the church. I love casting candles.


If anyone has a birthday, baptism, wedding, funeral or other celebration, you can order from me.

I not only make white candles but I love color and make colored candles straight through.


My dream was to do something with my hands something I like and I dreamed of making candles.


The only link to me right now is on Facebook.

There you will find everything I do in light.


Go in there and become one of us...

Get to know Anette Melin

My name is Anette Melin.  I am living in Lund city, Sweden.  I am a preschool teacher and an artist. 

I paint and create images with colors that appeal to and strengthen me. In my life I have always been creative and used different materials ... just like life, the art expression has also changed.

Today, it is collage painting that is mainly acrylic paint that is mixed with clippings and texts ... then the image comes to me and grows with the help of details and shadows. The creative process takes me into a flow ... time disappears ... meditative mindfulness ... amorphous and distinct as in a colorful dance.

You are so welcome to look at my artistic work on my instagram account.  Contact me if you want to know more about it, if you want tips or simply we can to share artistic experiences.  

Good luck on your magical journey to yourself, Anette.
