WHO IS MARINA
A fierce and passionate 30-something raised in Minnesota and many other parts of the world. By the time I turned 21, I had lived in 4 different countries on 3 different continents.
Throughout my life, I have had and pursued many passions. Some of them have taken me all around the world, left me with an enormous credit card debt (ask my husband 🙂 ), but also a world of priceless experiences and connections.
In a way, my many paths and journeys inspired a lifelong quest for the new and exciting.
When I got married and had my first child, I found that society had certain expectations of women in that category. Somehow at this stage in our lives, we are expected to fit a certain stereotype. This includes doing things a certain way or being interested (or not interested) in certain things.
I quickly found out I didn’t quite fit the mold.
While I want nothing more than to be the best partner to my husband and mother to my children, I also want to continue growing personally and excelling in other areas of my life. I certainly do not want to be defined by my age, marriage status, or career.
I established Brunette on a Mission to share my passion
for learning, discovery and personal growth.
This is a platform to bring novel ways of doing things or looking at things. Here, I hope to enable others to find innovative solutions to all sorts of problems with the ultimate hope to inspire and challenge the status quo in everything you do.
