Estelle Van de Velde

Hey I'm Estelle...

… and I’m a creative. As far as I can remember, I’ve always been attracted to arts. I scripted and performed little plays and musicals alongside my sisters in front of my parents. I wrote my first book at around nine years old. And I took oil painting classes as a teen while others played tennis or basketball.

Even though I’d say I’m more of an introvert, I’ve always cared about people. I started my career in marketing years ago, from SEO content executive to marketing manager, between both the UK and Belgium. However, I realized that this path didn't align with my true self. So I decided it was time for a big career change, something I should have done before entering adulthood. I decided I’d pivot from marketing to design. From a business-centric focus to a customer-centric one.

As you read these lines, I’m currently enrolled in a UX UI web design bootcamp at Cepegra to nurture the skills I gathered throughout the years and put them into good use.

On the side, I wear multiple hats as an indie author, a content creator on YouTube, and a speaker at author conferences. I do love sharing my journey through life with other people, and connecting through experience.

I’ve multiple projects on the back burner, but I’m currently editing a book on pregnancy and motherhood to talk about my experience being a mom to a little guy born in May 2022. Maybe the next one will be on making a career change, who knows! You’re welcome to follow along with my adventures on YouTube and Instagram.
