Every end is a new beginning
“Every story has an end but in life every end is a new beginning”
Today is my final day as an actuary. I am relieved that this day has finally come. 4 years of studying actuarial science and 3 years working as an actuarial consultant is a long time. It used to be my goal to become an actuary. But it was never my dream. My dream was always to explore and create beautiful things. And what better time to start that than now.
I have learned a lot from my time as an actuary. Our profession is all about calculating uncertainty and risk. I have learned how to quantify risk and to reduce risk. But after all that, I am still a risk taker by heart. So I guess I have learned nothing at all.
It is sad to leave that part of my life behind. But every end is a new beginning. Next week is the start of a new path for me. And it starts with a huge collaboration with my brother, The Boy in the Black Bow Tie. We are going all out with a video and editorial shoot. 3 outfits, 3 locations, 3 days. It sounds like we are mad, but we are both just dreamers and creators.
From next week onward, my life will be filled with beautiful fabrics, pretty dresses, lights and cameras. I am setting up a mini office with my sewing machine, my huge collection of bunny ears and high heels, and a calender packed with photoshoots and runway shows. I am so excited and ever so ready for this new beginning and to share it with you all.
