We believe impact-driven professionals deserve a trustworthy, innovative, & empowering digital space to bloom together.

our roots

The Bloom launched after a realization that no resource existed at the intersection of international affairs, social justice, and...joy!

As someone passionate about human rights who was brought up between various countries and cultures, I always searched for a resource informing me of the diverse world news, supporting me in empowering directions across borders, and connecting me to young changemakers around the world. That’s why I started The Bloom.

The Bloom a global newsletter bringing together meaningful opportunities from a diverse range of platforms, and collecting them in one enjoyable and straightforward resource. We tune out the noise of the internet (because, you know, shit gets NOISY out here) to bring out only the most essential information. A newsletter was the perfect first step for me because I love writing, and back in 2020 when I first started The Bloom, I was extremely shy online and an email felt pretty natural, like writing to a close friend who trusted me to share meaningful news, or who could use support in finding a job.

Going forward, that’s the spirit The Bloom will preserve – our project will expand but our roots will remain firmly grounded in the original soil we were planted in; the personal, accessible, no-bullshit friend that always wants to bring out the best in you, and supports you unconditionally along the way of your life’s journey.

 

with love & light,

Joy


We believe Joy is an act of resistance, a radical approach to activism grounded in celebration and hope.

We are a growing network of multicultural changemakers with a shared hope to make it easier to find the good in the world. Through The Bloom's newsletter, we share impactful seeds with fellow changemakers to help you grow into your best self.  

Beatrice

When Bea was 8 years old, she wrote a letter to her mother's boss: "Dear Sir - it read - don't forget that the purpose of life is to enjoy it!" She felt like employees should have time to spend with their loved ones, concrete recognition, and support. Today, she combines her advocacy skills with passions for building projects from scratch. Consistent in her activism for global justice, she leads initiatives with social impact. Her goal is to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in whatever capacity. She's here to accompany all brain drainers like her in the hunt for a meaningful, fair job - and avoid burnout in the process. When she is not fulfilling the stereotype of Mediterraneans that either eat or talk about food, she writes about rights and hikes through borders.
