Jennifer was my first voice and guitar teacher and is the reason that I write music. She is incredibly gifted as a teacher of music and, more recently, yoga. Jennifer is filled with compassion and empathy, and she recently launched an online community for people to learn to integrate breathing, yoga and meditation into their daily lives. The community also offers support through weekly reflections and an exclusive Facebook group where we discuss spiritual matters. Check her out at www.jenniferka.com.
Sonja is the wife of my cousin Volker, and she's a German screenwriter. She mostly writes for TV as far as I understand, and she's been doing that since she was in her teens. Recently, she joined a movement of writers who are campaigning to create a union for screenwriters in Germany. As things stood when I talked to her in June, there was no union. Screenwriters are commissioned for projects, but their names never appear in the credits of the finished product. Directors, in essence, take all the credit for the work, and writers have no say in changes the director makes. Sonja risked her job joining this movement for more fairness in the system when, as a woman, she is already in the minority. I'm inspired by her, and I think other people would be, too. Here's her website, but I can get you in contact if you want! http://www.sonja-schoenemann.de
