I’m Linda, the founder and heart behind ‘The Essence of People’.

I’m a true people-person, someone who finds passion in highlighting unique human stories and possesses a knack for connecting individuals.

For a decade, I’ve been immersed in the social field, where I’ve had the privilege of encountering countless extraordinary life experiences. It was during this time that I realized how much people need each other and how challenging it can be to find the right life stories that explain, inspire, or establish needed connections.

I felt that storytelling was the answer. I began writing life stories in collaboration with various Latvian media outlets. I feel thankful that people have trusted me with their most sensitive experiences, and I’m honored to publish them.

But it doesn’t stop there. People need connections all over the globe, and that’s how ‘The Essence of People’ came to life. I felt that these life stories need to be heard by a wider audience and chose to start writing in English in 2023.

You’re appreciated here, whether you are exploring, appreciating our differences by hearing different life stories, or maybe even creating meaningful connections. It’s an honor to have you!

If you feel like you want to contribute, just so you know, it’s all voluntary here—with days, nights, and heart devoted to this platform. Your participation is greatly appreciated, and you can find supporting methods here!

With love,
