Deborah Bell

Hello there! I’m Deborah Bell, welcome to my space.

I was born in Paris, grew up in Douala, and started adulting in Paris, Jena and London.

A buyer and planner by day, I now live in Manchester with my smart, gorgeous cheeky boy…

I’m a sucker for foreign languages – I mainly speak french and english, not too bad at german. My current challenge is to get to speak bassa (my mother tongue) as well as I understand it!

Music and reading help me escape, I love gardening, I’m an aesthete at heart, God is my foundation.

I revel in exploring the relationship we have with ourselves, and with others. My goal is to create a relatable platform where human rapport is explored honestly, with cheek and wit; engage you in the topics I bring up, in such a way that we can all get away from this platform with something – clarity, questioning or just a sense of belonging…

And hopefully keep on growing…growing lots with you, while having fun!

Let’s build something together.
