“It is a truth universally acknowledged… “
…that anyone who has something to say, must write a blog.
If there is one woman, who knows how to write an introduction, it’s Jane Austen. Unfortunately, I’m not Jane Austen, I’m not a literature heroine and I haven’t met Mr.Darcy. Nevertheless, my name is Suzan.
I am a classical ballet dancer with the Wiener Staatsballett (Vienna State Opera) and I am very happy to call Vienna home. Well, second home; my true home being South Africa. I am originally from Western Cape, South Africa. Although I only spent a short time of my childhood there, I still proudly consider myself South African and I will always consider it ‘Home’.
I spent most of my ‘growing-up’ years in the UK and completed 6 years of intensive training at The Royal Ballet School in London. Moving to Vienna was a big step into the ‘grownup’ world; exciting, daunting and scary at times. So I did what any smart person would do. I got a dog. A lovable companion to make you smile despite life’s little dramas.
So,I have things to say and stories to share, therefore I started writing a blog. As well as my rambling thoughts, stories and perspectives, I also want to share the stories of the people who have inspired me. It’s not necessarily the heroic figures who have best-seller biographies -sometimes it’s your family and friends who are the ones who inspire you the most; they shape who you are and how you think, they help you discover your self belief. And if you are lucky to have found the right people; then not a day will go by where you didn’t smile. We find true inspiration, from the people closest to us.
For now, this is all you need to know.
And that we will live happily ever after.
