Rosangela Borromeo outside The Old Diorama Arts Centre

“I’m Rosangela, the creator of ‘You, Mocha and Style’, and through my workshops I would like to give a little help to people to rebuild their confidence, inspiring them to bring out their hidden talents, dreams and to help to find methods that could help with their stress level using an holistic approach.

Through my workshops you can find out about methods to help with wellbeing and learn about community groups and other resources that are available here in Camden. I also aim to make people feel relaxed, entertained and bring a smile on their face.

I’ve never done this before and I’m thankful to We Make Camden and Camden Giving for supporting me and giving me the opportunity to create these workshops. I’m helping to engage people and bring the spirit of collaboration forward.

I’m excited to give Camden communities the opportunity to help them rebuild their confidence and self-esteem.”
