"Lotus of Lapland: The Material & Spiritual Life of Ulla-Maija" (working title) is the upcoming memoir of Ulla-Maija Kivimäki, an artist and creator, industrious immigrant, accomplished designer in the fashion industry, yogi, music producer, musician and tech guru. The book is a timely and revealing story of a life of a woman with big dreams. She grew up free, creative, independent and adventurous in Lapland, Finland, the land of pristine nature and equality. After a decade of studies around the world, she settled in New York, and after many years of struggle, made it big in the treacherous world of international fashion and luxury, only to have everything she owned taken from her at the height of her success, including her livelihood, business, name and reputation. Broke, broken and persecuted for opposing abuse, financial wrongdoing and crime, and traumatized for lack of justice, she was forced on an intense outward and inward journey of transformation to learn to see from a bigger perspective, to find her higher Self, and to realize her role and the purpose of her life in a world that is changing at a great speed.
