"Working with Ronja was the best thing I could do for ME and I have personally benefited so much. This year changed my life in a positive way and will go down in history as one of the best years for me, despite Corona!"


"The Joy Academy has made me dream and by dealing with myself and my feelings in the last six months, I am already getting closer to my dreams every day. I am much more aware of my goals in life, which directs the focus to the present, away from the past."


"I think reflecting, cleaning out inside and outside, working on dreams and visions are all things that always deserve attention. I'm super excited to be on the road for another year, continuing to work on myself and enjoy this journey."
