Rochelda Kemper is a 19-year old girl who is following her dreams. Everything in her life is about rest and relaxation. Rochelda grew up in a loving family with three younger sisters and is very close to her family and relatives. At a young age she was very quiet, felt things around her, captured energies, situations but she did not do anything with that. She thought it was nothing when you feel something that is not right.
In recent years, Rochelda has focused on her self-development, increased her self-awareness, and her life revolves around rest and self-care. Now she knows who she wants in her circle, how important relaxed energies are for her and has found a way to live in peace. In this podcast episode she shares her story from having several panic attacks a day and being a very passionate kickboxer to healing herself and opening her own massage business called refreshment.
It has been a pleasure meeting Rochelda who is from a younger generation than mine, one that demands and does not negotiate that much. Talking to her made me happy, gave me hope because for me it has been a painful process to find rest, however, I have embraced the journey and understood that my achievements are not my worth and that by resting I revolt against the system that measures us on our productiveness. Thank you Rochelda.
This is also the last episode before the summer break. Salt will be back in September.

At Salt the Podcast my guests and I contest and deconstruct narratives, and passionately recreate with the aim to change systems and perceptions. We want to elevate a generation that is feminist, antiracist and empathetic. Our conversations flow into each other and leave room for the unexpected. Salt is love, community, solidarity, a collective, healing, creating. It is intersectional, full of stories, movement and change. It insists, evolves and transforms. It is a commitment.
