The Power of Dreaming

by | 2 November 2018

What would you do with your life if money was no object?

What would you do if you could not fail?

What would you do if you had all the skills you needed?

When was the last time you allowed yourself to dream?

I recently joined our Co-Founder & Director, Reika, at an EO event where we had the privilege of hearing Kristina Karlsson and Dr. Tererai Trent talk about how dreaming shaped their lives.

Kristina is the Founder and Creative Director of coveted stationary brand, kikki.K, which all started with a dream. Kristina has no idea what she wanted to do with her life when she relocated to Australia at 22, but by imagining what her dream life looked like, she started taking steps towards creating that life for herself and is now passionate about helping others to do the same.



Dr. Tererai Trent is an advocate for quality education and women’s empowerment, a scholar, humanitarian, motivational speaker, educator, author, founder of Tererai Trent International and is also Oprah Winfrey’s all time favourite guest! Tererai grew up in poverty in rural Zimbabwe without the opportunity to have an education. Despite being married with three children at the age of eighteen, she never lost sight of her dreams of university education and sharing this with her community, writing them on a piece of scrap paper and burying them. Today, the Tererai Trent International Foundation is fulfilling her dream to provide universal access to quality education for children, regardless of gender or socio-economic backgrounds.



I found Tererai speaking about connecting your dreams to your community particularly thought-provoking and incredibly inspirational. Since the event I’ve realised that our dreams at Derma Aesthetics, headed up by Reika & Simone, are intrinsically linked to our communities such as sharing skin knowledge & education and bringing Oncology Aesthetics to all cancer patients. After hearing Kristina’s and Tererai’s stories, I left feeling anything was possible.



So, what are your answers? What are your dreams? Your Dream Life Starts Here is a great way to curate your dreams and make a plan to achieve them plus $1USD goes to Tererai Trent International.
