Heather Maciel

Program Coordinator
Fear is often the factor that presides over our life and thus our choices are often guided in such darkness. Heather was at a cross-road. Her uncertainty led her to dig deep and figure out why she still felt a lack, when her external life seemed so full. This internal search started at Aangen where Heather took part in a vision boarding workshop. There she was exposed to a glimpse of her true self and felt like she had been awakened after a long slumber. Heather has studied Freelance Writing and is currently enrolled in a Social Entrepreneurship Program. She is passionate about writing and how words can move and inspire people. Heather’s mission is to evoke positive change through spreading love and light wherever she goes. Today Heather is living her purpose; she is the Program Coordinator at Aangen where she is free to create, to serve and to love.
