Sweet As Fiction: Interview

\\

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Persistence, work ethic and vision coupled with love for what you do.

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

I am someone who always has her eye on the prize and will go and make it happen.

Why do you do what you do?

I do it because I enjoy it. Everyday is different which is what makes it so challenging yet rewarding.

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

I never realized how passionate I was about blogging and fashion until I started my blog. It started out as creative outlet that soon became something I loved working on every day. Acting is something I still enjoy, but I wanted to branch out and blog as well. Who says you can't do it all? :)

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

I think truly finding myself and where I fit into the world. You have so many people telling you what to do and how to be that when you take out all the noise, you just have you. Ultimately I had to decide what my beliefs were, what I really wanted and what made me happy. It was something that I figured out on my own through time and change. I am also very fortunate to be surrounded by people who love and support me.

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

I find inspiration from the greats. My favourite book is 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill which drives me to aspire to more.

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

I've made many. We all do. Everything is a learning process and these 'mistakes' get you ready for the things you truly want and are ready for. You just have to pick yourself up, learn from them and come back stronger.

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

Working with brands I can't mention as of yet so stay tuned for that on the blog. I would love to continue to work in the fashion industry on a design level as well.

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

Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
