To live in harmony with nature, to transfer her knowledge and emotions to you, the visitors of her ecological estate. But why the Astra Divina? “Talking to my colleagues about the name, one of them pointed out to me that I actually already have a name. It’s Astra Divina. “
In fact, that was the name of her email address a few years back. “People recognized me through it. The name could be easily pronounced by both locals and foreigners. I decided to take the advice. Then I opened my Facebook profile and page. As I moved to a new environment, people thought that Astra was my real name. It was extremely fun and endearing to me. Astra has become like some alter ego for me. It depicts that creative and proud part of my personality“, explains Marta.
