I knew what it felt like to not be wanted, to not have a dream, to not know what inspiration was, to not know what hope was, to not know if I was going to be alive the next day. I thought it was finally my turn to do what I wanted and what makes me happy ~ Michaela DePrince

Michaela DePrince was born in war-torn Sierra Leone during the country’s decade long civil war. A series of events lead to her living in an orphanage with fond hopes to one day become a ballerina. “I wanted to be happy,” recalls DePrince; she drew inspiration from a magazine featuring a ballerina not simply because she was dancing, but because, “she looked happy.”

We all have a passion. We all have a dream. For some, it’s about adventure. For others, it’s about tranquility. Our dreams are as vast and varied as the world is wide, but they all start with inspiration and inspiration starts with our surroundings. That’s what home is – what you choose to surround yourself with. Home is where you truly LIVE.
