15 MINUTES OF FAME

LIKES

Bookshops, bar locals, caravanning, karaoke, my uke, comedy shows, being in water generally, the ocean breeze but not in fabric softeners, clean sheets, going solo to the movies, peanut butter, ice cream and popcorn, the 80's, many bands and films that start with 'the', the night, neon signs, glitter, recycling, hyggeling, boardgames, taking everyone's Monopoly money, improvisation class, cycling and driving down hill, sleeping in, waking up to the bells of an old church, constellations, when someone makes you breakfast, fireworks on a random day, buying presents, getting what I wanted, Rumi's words, talking about human existence, people who are not afraid to be different, Hawaiian shirts, one piece swimsuits before they were in fashion, Friday when you deserve it.

HOLA, HELLO.

Olga Alonso is a copywriter interested in art direction.

She was born in Spain, but grew up bouncing between countries. She feels right at home in the water.

She just realised that writing about herself in third person isn’t all that bad.

After all, she’s a pretty cool chick.

She can do just about anything.
