Our story

The idea of the project stemmed from the question, "Do you share the same vision of yourself, your career and your life as you did years ago?". Through this question we started exploring individualism, what characterises it and how we all differ to one another. Reading into this notion we found it could be interesting to dive into the philosophy of the butterfly effect, relating to how your past decisions have impacted how you currently view and experience the world.
