Note from the Founder .06
There are so many things I want to say about this beautiful issue of Whilst that it seems hardly fair to limit my note to one page. Regardless, I want to highlight why this particular issue is special to me.
When I first thought of starting Whilst, I was in a time of immense transition. I had just moved to England and had emotionally and physically hit rock bottom. Whilst seemed like an impossible dream that would be kept and stored on the shelf until I was rich and successful. But when you’ve hit rock bottom in a foreign country, suddenly you start asking yourself, “Why not?” Why wouldn’t I start an online magazine where people can share their stories of process and change? Because if anybody needed it in those moments, I did. If it hadn’t have been for my friends and my family who pushed me to start asking these kinds of questions, there would be no Whilst.
