Testimonials

“Her poems always surprise me - they not only lifted me up in the times that I have felt sad, stuck or demoralised but also when I'm happy; they serve to bring out the inner child in me.” - C. Tian

The first time I met Elione and her beautiful son, was a few years back during a trip to the UK. She was very loving and I saw her as a very successful corporate banker on a tour with us. Her words have always been positive and enlightening. I'm so happy to see her courageously moving into something that she loves passionately. We all know how challenging it is for one to drop the shell of security and move into the unknown. Elione took every single step to embrace her passion and use her gift of words to shine light and love to many people. Her poems always surprise me - they not only lifted me up in the times that I have felt sad, stuck or demoralised but also when I'm happy; they serve to bring out the inner child in me. Her simple suggestion to consider “what would love do, feel or say?” is something that brings me back to my core whenever I feel lost in my own new journey. I appreciate her support, her presence and her poetry in my life as they bring joy, love and light in me and I'm sure many others would feel the same.

All the best Elione! Share your light, your love, wisdom and kindness with everyone. Bring out the inner child in those who have forgotten to have fun in their journey.

C. Tian
