A Little About Me

About Hana

Hello, I’m Hana and I’m on a mission to inspire people to create who they are so they can do what they love. I do that through writing short stories children’s books, and teaching courses on blogging and social media. I love when people discover who they really are – not who they think they are – and express than on online platforms.

I’m based in London, and I spend my time working on my second children’s book. Spoiler alert: it’s titled The Boy Who Wanted to Take A Jelly-Fish For A Roller-Coaster Ride. I teach my own online courses on blogging, social media and specifically on Instagram, along with the University of the Arts London: London College of Communication.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy fitness and running, and healthy cooking and baking (FYI: I’m gluten-free and dairy-free). I have a huge passion for coffee and match tea, and above all, spending time with my husband Andrej.

My Story

I started blogging in 2007 as a contributing editor for an Apple magazine in Slovakia where I come from. I fell in love with blogging. Only a year later I founded my first online platform – a fashion magazine of which I was the editor-in-chief for four years until I sold it in 2012.

Unable to define what to do next, I moved to Prague in 2013. Soon after that a coworking centre Impact HUB Prague asked me to do a workshop about blogging and it was a success. From that moment I never looked back.

The message I want to share with you is simple: find out who you really are and live your dream. After all, no one else can do that for you.
