A Golden Girl; Dafne Schippers
What is female power? What does it look like? We’re already familiar with images of male power; the presidents, the business moguls in their powersuits, the Picassos and the Putins. But what if women ruled the world?
As a matter of fact, women are starting to recreate the world from a feminine point of view. And every now and then, a new ‘pin-up’ of female power will stand up. Today you’ll see Dafne run in the 200m final at the World Athletics Championships in China after already having won the Silver in the 100m sprint; but here is a brief background into her history.
In 2013 Dafne amazed the world by breaking her 800m personal best by 6.9 seconds, to win heptathlon bronze at the World Championships. What did she do next? She became a sprint queen! Yes, this 23 year old Dutch dynamo is the living proof that only if you work hard, with complete dedication, you will find your hidden talents. Yes, she happens to be model-pretty, but it’s her determination that makes her stunning to all who come across her.
We’ll be cheering for Dafne today and into the future! Give her your support and tweet her a positive message via @dafneschippers on Twitter!
Trying to become a Maestro!
For a television program I am competing with 8 other Dutch personalities to become THE “Maestro”. The last few weeks have been nerve wrecking; I found my new passion.
My week; an inside look
I never have a week with a same sort of agenda as the week before, or the week ahead. That’s because I sometimes live the life of four different people.
Funny, Feminist and Fearless Lena Dunham
Writer, director, and feminist Lena Dunham was in town for her book tour. I have been a big Lena fan for quite some time, even before she was the well-known lady she is today.
Sisse Marie wears the Leading Strings
I really wanted to share the pictures of this powerlady with you. Sisse Marie seems to love wearing my designs and we all love to see her wearing it!
