WHAT teamCARPE HAS TO SAY ABOUT SEIZING THE DAY…
Shiori, Places & Spaces
“I have finally found a place for my writing, where I can continue to have the freedom to be creative in my own ways, and to share about the things I have grown to love. I am satisfied with my choice to take a chance with joining Carpe, and to allow my voice to be shared and heard by the world, no matter how shaky it may be sometimes. “
Aurelli, Music & Fashion
“I wasn’t too particularly worried about speaking to people and conducting street interviews, but any nervousness or anxiety that I had disappeared with the encouragement of the Carpe girls.
When it comes to more complex interviews which require a steadier stream of conversation, I get a lot more worried. The interview I held during GardenBeats was my very first proper interview so I felt really jittery etc, but again, with the help of Athena, Gabs and Angel, I ended up overcoming that fear.”
Liang Ying, Socio & Entertainment
“I joined Carpe Bloom mostly for two reasons – one, to learn more about the world we live in and hoping I can connect to it – especially in Singapore’s context – and two, to improve my writing. Being part of team Carpe has really opened up my eyes to issues that I would have never thought of before – for example, supporting our local music industry and women empowerment. Carpe explores so many issues and themes I would have never thought of associating myself with and I am thankful for being exposed to such experiences and given the opportunities.
Writing for Carpe has helped me tremendously too! I think I definitely learnt more vocabulary and how to write good feature articles hahaha. Cheers to working with Carpe and our wonderful team!”
AJIT, depARTment artist
Carpe Bloom has been the perfect platform for me to feature my art pieces and achieve my personal aim of inspiring others. Carpe Bloom has also inspired not only me but also many other artists to showcase their own voice and creativity to the world.
Working with Athena Tan, the founder, has been very professional yet beautiful. She listens to all your ideas and builds on them. Also, she ensures that the purpose behind every featured piece is meaningful and really motivates the artist. The Carpe Bloom team is very hardworking and with their genuine hearts, I am very sure that Carpe Bloom will reach even greater heights!
Angel, Social Media & Features
CARPE BLOOM. Just hearing the name makes me elated and jump starts my heart 🙂 I joined to hone my writing skills and make new friends, and that is EXACTLY what I had the opportunity to experience and much more. I definitely expanded my worldview even more with the different perspectives of all the creators we contact, the many talented creators whose precious work I might never have known if not for carpe.
Athena, the founder of Carpe Bloom, is a real sweetheart and a true guiding star when it comes to article writing. She was the main editor of my debut article on Reinhardt Kenneth and she made my writing take flight. It is a joy and honour to be working with her and I am stoked for the future adventures that we embark on to meet and get to know the works and the creators themselves. To share their work with the world and to make new friends!!
