The story behind my blog
My name is Lea and let me tell you my story because behind every blog is life story and creator with the heart of the writer.
Everything started 28 years ago when I was born in a small industrial town called Ostrava. It wasn’t the most beautiful place to enjoy childhood, but at some point, this city is still deeply in my heart. I remember to be struggling with my health lot as a child and probably because of that my parents decided to move away from that city. They wanted to create a peaceful and healthy life for me and my older sister and moved away to a small village called Nejdek. You wouldn’t believe how small this village is. SO SMALL!
During my last years, I created so many blogs and digital self-projects that I don’t remember them all. I think my first blog was about Emo style and I was 13 years old. (Yes, also I was emo teenager). After secondary school, I started Uni and moved back to my favourite Ostrava. I have to say I loved a student life! I was so productive and lucky. I studied, worked, managed to live in my lovely city and my life was so independent. I worked in PR and digital agency, this was my first profit job in SEO field, copywriting and digital propagation.
Maybe because I am a Londoner ….
Even when I loved my student life when we believe that we belong somewhere else life will give us away. I lost a job in PR, I started to be upset and hate everything about studying, I couldn’t to find a job and was struggling with money. I was feeling like a need to escape from everything and learn something new outside of my comfort zone. I had never travelled before, but I remember the gossip girl era and me to be dreaming about life in New York and feeling jealousy every time my friends travelled away from the Czech republic.
This broken moment was the moment for me to book my first flight to London and try to be an Aupair. I was 20 and so excited! My first experience was a total disaster and I ended back at home with my parents after 2 months. Life wasn’t easy at all in London and I did so many mistakes.
Well, lesson learnt and I gave myself second chance. I missed London so much and I wanted to go back immediately and that’s exactly what I did!
I took my second chance, I knew that I need to be calmer, more clever and careful… It’s been almost 9 years and I slowly build everything that I dreamed about. I finished my economy degree with a red diploma while I worked as a cleaner. (a beautiful life experience), I travelled, learned different cultures, created a nice life in London and find a flat in Archway, where I can have my space and quiet time, I have a decent job as family PA and starting to make another life stories.
