Two truths and a lie, Garance Doré-edition:
Growing up, the illustrator/blogger and self-described story teller used to…
– Teach windsurfing at a naked camp
– Live in an island village so remote that the walk into town could take up to two hours
– Subsist on a diet of gummy bears, corn and waffles
~*Which one is the lie??*~
Because it would be too obnoxious to leave you cliff-hanging with a simple “listen to the podcast and you’ll find out!”- type sign-off, I’ll at least give you this: Garance Doré’s parents owned a restaurant, so deduct from that what you will about her diet.
From both her mother and her father (as well as her Berber-born grandmother), Doré learned how to put value on things beyond material objects or status symbols. They taught her how to work hard and embrace being different. And from the world around her, Garance Doré learned that “cool” is a state of mind.
For the rest of her story and the answer to my party riddle, seems like you’ll just have to plug your headphones in, doesn’t it? Promise it’s worth it, especially if you’ve been wondering lately, “What does success mean to me?”
