Lara is a book and film-junkie with an intense love for travelling, drawing, modern art and photography. She started out in life with the dream of becoming an Astronomer (or a pink pony). Soon she realised that science wasn't her best friend and she discovered an aptitude for writing. At the age of fifteen she started working for the blog Antwerpen Streetstyle. She is now studying Woordkunst at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp.
Along the way she was brainwashed by her granddad who passed on his love for Antwerp. A sea captain born and raised 'op 't Kiel' (ed an Antwerp neigbourhood) . Although he had travelled the seven seas, been on every continent and visited the most beautiful places in the world, he always said that only Antwerp could make his heart start racing. Her interest for our city is mostly grounded on her determination of finding out why he loved Antwerp so intensly.
