Joleen is a senior graphic designer at a digital ad agency, she took up pole dancing a little over a year ago and it changed her life. Through pole dancing she truly learned to love her body and appreciate how capable, strong and sexy it is.

What do you wake up thinking about?

Usually about how I wish I could sleep for another 30min.

What's your morning ritual?

Lay in bed with my cats for 15min, wash my face, make warm lemon ginger water, do my makeup, get dressed and leave for work. I stop & get a coffee at Bang Bang pie on my way to the train. 

How does social media play into your daily life?

Pretty much in every aspect. I share things with my friends, write tweets for my yoga studio & design & concept social media campaigns at work. 

Are we more connected or disconnected than before?

I think it's different for everyone. I feel more connected because I'm very open about myself on social media & open to cultivating new in person friendships with my online friends.

What is most important to you in life?

Loving myself so that I can fully give my all to my family & friends. And my cats, my cats are everything.
