For those who’ve just recently followed my account, let me introduce myself again: I’m Miriam, crazy addicted kitesurf addict and freelance graphic designer. I founded Wake Up Stoked to make my life philosophy a living thing and remind myself daily to create a life I love to wake up to, which involves a lot of kitesurfing since it’s the thing that makes me feel most alive and like my true self . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m addicted to coffee, sports and healthy food. I need to sweat every day otherwise I turn nuts and can’t sit still while working. I’m freelancing for various clients mostly in German speaking countries as a graphic designer.
I’m working around 70 to 90% on my freelance business and spend the rest of my time on Wake Up Stoked – which has become much more than an informational blog – it has become a community, an inspiration and reminder for many people including myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m traveling the world around 5 to 10 months a year, always trying to stay in a place for a month or longer. Munich is still my home base because of friends and family and because it is a pretty rad town in summer! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for the support and belief of my family, friends and like-minded people I met along my journey. I’m a living work in progress and while there is so much stoke in my life, there is also a lot of fear of the unknown – which is a daily part of my lifestyle as you might have understood by now. I’m living life at the edge or outside of my comfort zone because it helps me grow and evolve. I believe that growing daily is the only way to live a fulfilled life for me and reaching my potential a bit more, day by day.
I have no idea where I will end up but I know I’m going the right way, carving my own path step by step and enjoying the journey. It’s going to be one hell of an adventure and that I surely won’t end up where I’m planning to 😉 Because life always has the best surprises for you in hand, if you’re just starting to walk into the right direction.
