Keep Your Head Up

When I got the first edit of this beautiful video by DP Danko Puttar and Director/ Editor Will Benson, I saw the girl (me) who finally showed up here: the one who loves to twirl and dream big and not be afraid to live!

Yes! I am AWAKEN and I can twirl on top of some pretty cool ancient walls and sing to tear the walls down! (proverbial walls, of course, otherwise I don’t think the City of Dubrovnik would have let me do this)

For me, this video represents a personal success and victory – seriously, through it I overcame some pretty big challenges (more about it in the “Behind the Scenes” video coming up soon) AND I had a chance to work with a great team of incredibly talented and awesome people!

Now it’s out in the world for others to take its joy and its message – and don’t worry… by taking from it, you will only add to its impact 🙂

With love,
Tajci
