Meet me

"What is for me will never miss me"

Hi everyone! My name is Ariangela, the creator of Safety sanctuary.

I am 31 and originally from the Caribbean (Curaçao), but I grew up and currently living in The Netherlands.


My mission is to create an online guide and international community that supports people when they’re having issues with mental health, self-development, or making meaningful connections in life. 


Mental health issues like depression and anxiety are rapidly rising and even claiming more lives every year. And unfortunately waiting lists to get professional help are unacceptably long.

I am not a professional yet, but I have experienced many topics that will be discussed or mentioned here.


That’s why I am trying to do what I can with what I know and learned from experience, mentors, and professionals, and share these with everyone who needs it. Please feel free to leave your comments and experiences in the comment sections across this website, because your input could benefit someone else. And I am just one voice.


Some facts about me

  • I’m newly engaged
  • We have 2 bunnies called Bellamy & Luci
  • I am studying to becoming a licensed counselor
  • I have the INFJ -  Advocate type. It frighteningly fits me perfectly


What I am currently working on

  • Trying to cook more from scratch
  • Being less idealistic
  • Figuring out what the best version of myself looks like and how to get there
  • Expanding safety sanctuary


Well, that’s it for now. You will get to know me a little bit better through the articles and blog posts I will be writing.

Thank you for being here and talk to you soon!
