GET TO KNOW YOUR CHAMPION
Bio: I’m an adventurous, extroverted, faith-filled, nature loving, tree hugging, millennial. Huge foodie that has a passion for cooking. I’m a brand strategist by profession, and recently started my own digital marketing agency. That is my most recent achievement. An achievement most people don’t know and that I would like to speak more openly about is that I battled anxiety and depression for about two years and my overcoming it has been my biggest personal achievement.
Causes and initiatives I support: Giving back to the community is something that’s close to mine and my partners hearts. We have a NPO called Blessed to Give which is a daily feeding scheme we founded about two years ago. I am naturally drawn to the upliftment of those in society who are less fortunate than others. The ideology that stands true to who I am is love all. No matter their race, background, ethnicity, sex etc.
What I hope to achieve as your #BlueRibbon Champion: I hope to use this platform as a tool to educate, impact and empower a generation.
What does feminism or woman empowerment mean to me: Feminism does not necessarily just mean advocating for women’s right, but rather the equality of all genders. A true feminist believes in the power of women just as much as they believe in the power of anyone else. It all boils down to respect and kindness for me.
Favourite song: Is that a trick question? Haha, faaaar too many!
Dream destination: Norway to see the Northern Lights
Knowing what I now know, I would tell my 14-year-old self: BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND YOUR POWER. Focus on your dreams and not the plans or dreams others (family) have for you. Be kinder to yourself.
The one goal I wish to achieve: To make an income whist making an impact.
