To Vogue or Bust: Interview

\\

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

My parents, tow of the strongest people I know.

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

A communicator

Why do you do what you do?

To communicate how I see beauty and to hopefully inspire others.

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

I’ve always known I’d do something with words, so this really is just a continuation of what I always knew I would end up doing.

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

Just trusting myself as I’m my worst critic.

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

My parents really wanted us to follow our dreams, so they’ve both inspired and supported us.

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

Ongoing! I make mistakes every day. Biggest lesson learned was to not beat myself up.

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

Relaunching my site and launching digital products soon.

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

Be authentic and focus on what really matters.
