Mia Medaković-Topalović is the founder and editor-in-chief of the online magazine Refresh Your Life (RYL). RYL is a mix of spirituality, art, culture, beauty, fashion and personal development. The texts in the magazine are written and published in Serbian, Croatian, English, Bosnian, Italian and German. With a simple click, RYL can be read worldwide.
I was introduced to Mia by a mutual friend from Florence, and when Mia visited Abu Dhabi in April 2018 we met. She set about interviewing me and I was struck by her dynamic and vibrant personality. The interview titled “iPhoneart Journey" was published in May 2018.
In October of the same year whilst visiting Baku in Azerbaijan, I was contacted by Mia to write an article about my meeting there with artist Faig Ahmed.
In November 2019 I was once again asked to write for the magazine and had a fantastic time putting together “Linda’s Wonderland”.
This February RYL with its 91st issue celebrated its 8th birthday. It was a great honour to be asked to write for this issue. My article is titled “The heart of the lion”.

Marika Nell is a South African born artist, environmentalist, podcast host and speaker, who is passionate about sustainability and rethinking waste.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mariska at World Art Dubai and not too long after that Mariska asked me if she could interview me for her Youtube channel.
Mariska and I became friends over the years before I left for Canada and she for Australia, and we still keep in touch.
It was a pleasure to be interviewed by her:
"Tend to each other's growth. Make others successful in the most generous way".
