At seven I received my first journal - a battered, faux leather number that my sister had stashed down the side of her bed. The journal was pretty empty and void of any of the juicy gossip I had expected to find wedged between its pages. As I turned from one blank page to the next I felt a surge of excitement at the prospect of filling this untouched space with my thoughts, my feelings, and my overactive imagination.
Twenty years later I have filled the pages of over thirty diaries, countless notebooks and a handful of doodlers. It was in those journals that dreams were formed, tears were poured, beautiful images of my travels were stuck, and quiet times with God were spent.
Why We Help?
The choice to give a percentage of Gazelle London’s profits to the Campaign for Education (CAMFED) was driven by an experience I had in 2005 whilst travelling in Lagos, Nigeria. A little girl, no more than five years-old, approached our slowly moving car as we crawled in traffic on a busy motorway. She didn’t ask for money, she simply smiled. But as she looked longing into the car, at the space between myself and sister, my heart broke. The memory has stayed with me for the last 13 years.
CAMFED is a charity which invest in the education of vulnerable, young girls across sub-Saharan Africa. To find out more about the wonderful work that they do, please click HERE.
I hope that the blank pages of these thoughtfully produced collections give you the release you need, to manifest the life you desire.
Our goal is to inspire, motivate, uplift and enable everyone to live their best life. I thank you for giving Gazelle London the opportunity to do so.
