Hello, I’m Aminata, and my recent life’s journey has been quite an unexpected adventure leading to self-discovery. An adventure that started as a business but evolved into something much deeper. When I started my business making and selling organic drinks under my own brand, Aminata Organics, I initially thought that I was just developing a product. Still, it turned out to be so much more. Those drinks weren’t just beverages; they became the key that unlocked my passion for storytelling. Standing at my stands across various markets and fairs in Belgium and the Netherlands, engaging with visitors, I realized my natural affinity for storytelling, sharing anecdotes, and sparking connections among strangers awakened this passion within me.
Now, I work as a salesperson at a shipping line in Antwerp, linking forwarders and individuals with shipping solutions. It’s a role that involves connecting people across different company departments and finding solutions to various challenges. This role requires a different kind of connection, which is incredibly fulfilling.
My journey as an entrepreneur led me to Toastmasters Port of Antwerp Bruges, a place where I felt safe and empowered to pursue my love for storytelling and connecting with people. Today, my goal is to inspire and connect by sharing experiences and stories, listening, and learning from others.
Welcome to my world of storytelling, where we’ll explore the beauty of connecting and weaving stories together! Through sharing our stories, we often discover surprising similarities, uniting us rather than highlighting differences.
