Om clariz90

My name´s Clara, 26 year-old from Sweden/USA. Adopted from Nicaragua. I came to Sweden when I was 3,5 months old. I´m a premature baby, born 3,5 months too early and complication of that was that I got Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) or Terry Syndrome which led to 10 eye surgeries and today I´ve 30% percent vision on my right eye and no vision on my left eye. But i´ve been doing just fine, thanks to the great doctors who did EVERYTHING in their power to help me at University Hospital of Linköping, Sweden 26 years ago. I want to point out, most people have more problem with how I´m able to live a daily life with no white cain, no service dog and do as well as I am. I do not know anything else and my brain and my body have adjusted to the situation I am in. Lots of people tells me that I am brave, stubbon and never give up whenever I set my mind up to do something. I own a horse, a ten-year-old mare named Toga and when I´m riding I´m just like everyone else and nobody notice my vision issue, I trust her with my life and she´s my very best friend. My biggest inspiration and role models in equestrian sport are: - Jessica Springsteen (USA) - Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) - Laura Kraut (USA) - Yazmin Pinchen (GBR) - Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE) Another interest i have is music, I started singing in a local choir at my church when I was five, started play the piano at age six, started play the guitar at age 12 and harmonica at age 16. My biggest inspiration and role models in music are: - Bruce Springsteen - Patti Scialfa - Johnny Cash At the moment I work as an Elementary School Music Art teacher, where I teach kids aged 6-12. I graduated University of Gothenburg´s Teacher´s Program in 2015.

Juice Plus+

Juice Plus+ ~ I decided to invest in myself and be happier…

For a long time I’ve felt that I need to do some changes in my life, like heading back to the gym or start running… well neither of those two make me feel excited and I wanted to have something that motivates me to start to go for Power Walks and running again!

A few months ago I became friends with a friend of a British rider I know, she runs her own business with products from Juice Plus+ and she started talking about what big impact these products had on her body and how she keeps motivated to live a healthier life. She gets more energy and these really does WORK!!

She adds Capsules that containers 30(!) different fruits and vegetables each day along with Shakes and Booster powder. So when she launched a new product called Vegan Omega Capsules I jumped onboard!! I were one of five that got a spot on testing these new capsules and I can’t wait to see the results ✌❤️

So today I received my Golden Nuggets !!

This package  came in my mail today!!
