Lookingforladybird was created by Eddie Tyquin in 2017. Eddie is a primary school teacher, holistic life coach and a trained youth mentor. Looking for Ladybird is a wellness and motivational program for people of all ages. Looking for Ladybird aims to provide the young, old and everything in between with positive routines and tools that lead to a happy, healthy and self-confident life. Self-worth, wellness, motivation, quality presentation and professionalism are the core values behind Looking for Ladybird.
No one knows positivity quite like Eddie Tyquin. A lover of all things bright and colourful, both in her wardrobe and life in general, Eddie sees the world through rainbow-coloured glasses – but this hasn’t always been the case.
“As a teenager, I really struggled with self-acceptance,” says Eddie. “I so badly wished that someone could just teach me how to embrace who I was and give me the tools to navigate those tough high school years.”
There should be people like you on this planet (yes – you), there should be people like me on this planet (yes – me) and there should be people like that dude in the corner of the coffee shop lining up his pocket coins in order of date.
Getting to know a person is like staying with one kooky creature in a zoo and just being with them all day. You might be drawn to the tiger at first (because they are a tiger for crying out loud!) but then, after close examination, you come to understand the meerkat is cheeky, loyal and perceptive.
