The workshops were created by Aya McCrindle, born and raised in Japan, Aya has a Master’s Degree in Education from Temple University, and a BA in Literature from Sophia University.
She is a classmate of Jake Adelstein, the acting editor in chief of the this blog. (Editor’s note: It’s true—so I’m biased towards liking this whole program. She’s a pal.) She has been running a model agency in Tokyo for nearly two decades; under her stewardship the number of models jumped from 4 to 50, and the client list increased from 50 to over 5,000.
Slightly disillusioned with the surface values of the modeling business, she recently discovered that her element is as a Connector: bringing together the many inspiring and committed individuals she has been blessed to meet, whether through international schools, the fashion industry, TEDx, FEW, Room to Read, Make a Wish, or through her myriad other networks.
Aya has organized the “Find Your Element Workshop” (on twitter @) and “Enhance Your Element through Meditation” to help people find a purpose in their life. Her wish is that one extra person will feel a sense of passion, motivation, comfort and/or wisdom she has experienced through these inspirational leaders.
