The intention of NDN is to create a space to curate meaningful content for lifestyle brands and inquiring individuals. Additionally, NDN aims to inspire others to mindfully create healthier lives for personal + global development, wellbeing and preventative health. NDN exists because there is a need for individuals and lifestyle brands to be both mindfully and beautifully self expressed through meaningful content. Content can be defined rather broadly: a conversation, photos, words, video, art, fashion, music, events–anything of substance that leaves a lasting impression for those on the other side of the experience. Content is anything that can touch, move, and inspire. NDN facilitates powerful story telling through curated expression.
Nkechi Deanna Njaka, MSc. is an integrated lifestylist combining her backgrounds in neuroscience, dance, nutrition and fashion to create a mindful and creative space for individual consulting, coaching and content creation.Nkechi has spent the majority of her life investigating the relationship between the brain and the body and has always felt the significance of their integration. She was originally interested in how fear and anxiety prevented her from living a fully expressed life in certain circumstances while simultaneously knowing that participatory arts like dance gave her the freedom to self express. She longed for this to be in balance and true for all people everywhere. For several years, Nkechi worked as a neuroscientist as well as a professional modern dancer/choreographer. Sometimes she held both professions at the same time, but the work was compartmentalized and separate. After experiencing burn out from pursuing these separately, Nkechi spent a significant amount of time in self inquiry. She asked herself what she could create that would combine both while promoting and sustaining individual and global wellbeing. She discovered that mindfulness and creativity are C R U C I A L for sustaining individual and global wellbeing.
