Julie, the Founder of Mooi Mirrors, has been the co-ordinator of the University of North Carolina's Cape Town Study Abroad program, for the past 11 years. As with many of us, Covid saw an end to this work and she had to look at her skill set and try something new!
"My daughter asked me to make her a mirror she had seen on Instagram for Christmas 2020 and the idea of making mirrors started there. With the encouragement of my daughters, I did some research into the feasibility of selling them and had a positive response. It's been a huge learning curve ( I am a social worker by profession!) and have had to learn many new skills to satisfy my perfectionist personality! I have enjoyed the journey and all the amazing people I have met through it."
