In this episode I'm interviewing the inspiring Sara Lehtikangas. She has been traveling the world full time for the past 3.5 years, is a (self-taught) handpoke tattoo artist and also teaches yoga. During her travels she has visited over 15 countries, immersing herself into different cultures, learning about their world & languages.
Have you ever found yourself at a place where you've realized, this is not what I want in my life? At the young age of 14 Sara broke free from her very strict religious family structure, searching for her own answers and values in life. Her strong curiosity and own will led her to question everything around her and searching for her own purpose in this world.
Right from start when I met Sara more than two years ago in India, I fell in love with her ideas and her way of seeing things. I was already then, and am even more now two years later, in awe of her humble and kind spirit. She is such an inspiration to the world, sharing her knowledge so freely and giving back to the world wherever she can.
"Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu - May all being be happy and free and may my thoughts, words and actions contribute to that." - The meaning of Sara's first tattoo.
I invited Sara to this podcast to share her ideas and experiences with you. I'm sure you while enjoy listening to her just as much as I did! Some amazing facts about Sara:
Broke free from a strict religious structure
Moved to Mexiko for 1 year by the age of 17 (without speaking Spanish)
Moved more than 20 times before 20
Traveled the world for the last 4 years
Taught herself how to tattoo, two weeks into tattooing she could quit her job in hospitality
By the age of 30 she wants to speak 10 languages - she is now learning her 6th
Did an interview for the Brazilian TV in Portuguese (after traveling there for a few weeks only)
