Born to a Finnish teenage daughter of a trade union activist; and a Cuban marine engineer and a great grandson of a slave. She’s genetically modified to cope in extreme temperatures.
This is an under-exercised talent in the context where she currently lives in
North London – which is not the part where the cool Vespa-owning media people reside an expat inhabited neighbourhood of Miraflores in Lima, Peru.
Studied Sociology for a couple of years too long for it to have any practical applicability to her career as a management consultant at a big city firm too reputable to be named here. But it gives her enough feminist reference points when she balances her demanding job and even more demanding six-year-old, whose Finnish name translates to ‘magic’. To her she’s a ‘MUM!!’, to society she’s a ‘single mum’, to Tesco she’s the mother of the unidentified item in the bagging area, otherwise she’s Dulce* (dool-seh), a fact the title of this blog tries to testament.
In ‘Dulce Compañia’ she writes about all of the above and other equally incompatible parts of her life.
