After several solo travels around the globe, developing an interest in yoga and surfing, and her passion for writing, she decided it was time to say goodbye to everything she once considered hers. After sleeping under the stars, camping, wandering around empty beaches, learning to surf, traveling the globe, teaching yoga and coaching teenagers and students, House of A was born.
House of A is the result and the beginning of a journey into the unknown. The aim to empower students to be who they are. Help them develop to become the most authentic version of themselves. To make the world a better place.
