Hanne Lore Deren (hannederen)

Joined 7 years ago from Seattle




I grew up with music and films (of course, as a child I used to hate "real" films and LOVE animated films, like all kids do), and growing up in a big European city (no, I wasn't born in Seattle, sorry); that was pretty much what life was. My mother, whom I adore, is a violin teacher and I used to beg her to take me with her to work, so I listened to a lot of classic music on a daily basis. We didn't have much, so the first great thing I can remember was to rent and borrow from friends classic animated movies, such as Disney, and watch them on our old VCR and TV for hours. I used to dream of how fantastic would be if I could ever be able to come up with such captivating and enjoyable stories.

In the mean time, my mother (and other adults that knew me at the early age of 4), decided I was so musically talented that it would have been a shame to waste it, so that's how my 13 years of studying classic music journey begun. As I started school later on, I discovered my passion for writing; I was famous in my class for my poetic descriptions (imagine that), and yes, I was very proud (but still modest and shy) of my new talent. However, as I entered my high school years, I realized that none mf my talents I discovered so far, and in which I invested so much hard work, had a future, in fact, I started hating what I was doing and the direction I was heading, so I said stop, no more, and focused on social sciences, I discovered new interests in fields like psychology, history, biology... I even contemplated medical school, but math, chemistry...and hospitals were really freaking me out (yes, I admit, I was a math and chemistry alien), so I said to myself no way I'd pass the admission exams,

After completing two bachelors (political science and psychology) and a master program in international relations, I realized that my early interests did not lead me in the direction of a PhD, nor to a real life career, so now I am reconsidering my "flaws" and "gaps", exploring new directions, making peace with alien things such as chemistry, rethink my priorities and trying to enjoy as much as possible the things I like most in this world, instead of racing through life, from one goal to another...and praying - a lot - for the light to come my way.
