Alexandra Georgy: Interview

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I think life is about figuring out who you are and what you are meant to do in this world. Its an ongoing process that I don’t think ever ends. We are constantly evolving creatures and that is the beauty of it all.

Why do you do what you do?

Simple. I have a passion for it. I am so lucky to get to call what I do work. I think life is too short to work at a dead end job that you hate. Make what you love your job and the rest will fall into place.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I am Egyptian, so visiting Egypt was a proud moment for me. Seeing where my ancestors came from is a very humbling feeling.

 

Bloggers Who Brunch LA came about when I started to take my personal blog seriously. I would always reach out to fellow influencers on Instagram to grab coffee and just hang out. I love surrounding myself with like minded individuals who share the same passion as me. I remember always leaving those meetings feeling so inspired to get out there and create quality content! So, I thought to myself, "why isn't there something out there that brings together the blogging community?" and thats when I came up with BWBLA. A place where influencers from across the world can come together to connect, create, and build genuine relationships. I truly love this community and simply want everyone to feel like they can be a part of a positive, uplifting community of creatives.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The toughest thing I had to overcome was probably my anxiety. I tend to be really hard on myself and set unrealistic expectations that lead to my anxiety. My boyfriend has always been there to help me remind myself that everything is ok and not as bad as I think it is.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I would have to say my mom. At a very young age my mom taught me to be resilient and to never give up on my dreams. I think my work ethic today is all due to her encouraging words as a young girl. I would like to think that I inspire others to strive for their dreams. I receive emails every once in a while from my followers explain how I have influenced their life in one-way or another. Those emails always push me and inspire me to continue to do what I do!

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I have never looked back at a mistake and regretted and I wouldn’t change those mistakes for the world. As cliché as this may sound, every mistake you make in your life is for a reason. Its meant to teach you lesson in order to make you stronger for the future.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Growing BWBLA is my biggest goal right now. Im working really hard on it and I have some really amazing projects/collaborations in the works! Stay tuned!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

My biggest piece of advice I would give anyone is don't be afraid to try! I feel like most people hold themselves back from their goals due to fear of rejection. If you never try, how will you ever know! Never let the fear of rejection stop you from reaching your goals, no matter what they are. I never would have imagined that I could accomplish what I did with BWBLA but I simply reached out and look what happened! Always try, you won't lose a thing!

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Keep it positive and keep it moving
