Show Notes

What does it take to really stand in your power? Having a voice means 'speaking up and speaking out.' Carl's guest today shares her story, her journey, and how she's empowering others to change their lives through speaking up, and speaking out!

Marieke van Asten,  is the founder of the Breadfruit House of Dominica.  She's a published author,  passionate blogger, proud Rotarian, and a former executive assistant.  

Her upcoming book, Unboxable”, will be published in 2022. 

At age 55, she uprooted a comfortable life in her native country of the Netherlands to move to the small Caribbean Island of Dominica.

In the aftermath of a major hurricane, she uncovered her purpose in life, which resulted in her non-profit, called the Breadfruit House Dominica Foundation. Marieke uses her love of art and creativity to help young children be empowered and heal from their traumatic experiences by letting them tell their stories without words with the help of creativity.
