Don’t we all like to scroll through the „highlight reels“ of people’s lives we often don’t even know? Filters hide flaws and shortcomings and make us lose connection to the raw, the real and the relatable. In #nofilter Tabea Oppliger shows that pioneering a dream involves blood, sweat and tears and that #nofilter is not just a hashtag, but a lifestyle and a calling.
Written straight from her life in Tel Aviv, Israel, a melting pot of different cultures, she tells of her relentless commitment to helping exploited people with her social business „KitePride“ and her non-profit organization „GlowbalAct“. With each line of this book you will not only be inspired but challenged to become active yourself, to discover your own unique gift and simply to begin with what is in your hands; making hashtags and dreams your reality.
