About Kira Bella
She dealt with beauty from an early age. With a mother as a skincare specialist and a father as a plastic surgeon, she spent many an hour within the walls of the clinic in America. With a childlike wonder and natural curiosity, she learned about the world around her in her own playful manner, and grew increasingly fascinated by the way the world works.
From the start, she always had a rich imagination, and held a fascination for herbs and magic. She loved all kinds of holistic medicine. She wanted to heal and help people.
In 2010, she moved with her mother to the Netherlands, her mother’s country of birth.
Besides a great many interests, she has a good head on her shoulders and loves to learn. At this point in time, she is in her final year of grammar school, where she has a subject package centred around the sciences, technology and health.
Her vision is a joining of two worlds:
“Science is wonderful, it’s truly awesome, but in this world, what is constant, ever-present? Books can burn, databases can crash. The constant in our universe is simply the universe itself, nature itself. Science itself originated in the study of nature.
“In ancient history, the first scientists were in fact philosophers. In my experience, the way the “scientific approach” is characterised is focused on what has already been proven, fact-based classification, if it hasn’t been proven to exist, it doesn’t exist! As of yet, I have felt little room for creativity and the original approach to the unknown: philosophy.
“Medicine is a wonderful branch of the sciences, utilising biology, chemistry as well as physics. The human body is so incredibly intricate and complex, that we understand so much is truly something to celebrate.”
“People don’t always realise that also modern medicine came from somewhere, and ancient medicine is well, ancient. Medicine too found its roots in nature so to speak. The first pill was a herbal concoction, the first pharmacist the tribe healer, the first pharmaceutical developer a botanist.
“We are still very much dependent on our planet for life resources, so it is extremely important that we take care of it. By using bio-products and reducing our carbon footprint, we help mother nature and she helps us.”
