Fortuna Ludmir, former lawyer and successful wedding planner for 12 years, is the founder of Believe in Kindness Foundation, an organization that strives to be an agent of social change that transforms lives through kindness. We are currently helping girls at risk with mental health and emotional support.
Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Fortuna graduated in law and political science from the University of Lima and worked in the financial industry for six years. She moved to Miami in 2001 where she founded Design 42, a luxury market based wedding planning and design firm.
In addition to her philanthropic work, Fortuna is a creative mind and the author of the song “Cadenitas de Amor” by Periko & Jessi Leon.
Fortuna is available for writing projects and for partnerships for Believe in Kindness Foundation with brands that are looking for social content associated with the core values of kindness and the importance of helping underprivileged girls at risk.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
