EMPOWERMENT AND SELF-UNDERSTANDING

Hi dolls!

A lot of of times I get asked what is this blog about and I was always so confused in what can I give my readers that other blogs don’t have. And I believe that my message is about self-empowerment and self-understanding.



What do I mean by empowerment?

As a millennial and as a woman I found it difficult to understand my place in the world. Coming from a low middle class setting I always had to fight to earn what I want and put myself forward in order to gain credibility and skills. I was born in Italy (click here to see where I come from) and I while growing up I was always to odd one in the bunch, and that was for multiple reasons. I grew up in a mainly white town close to Venice where there where two families coming from a minority background. And at the time it was easier to see what divided us and not what united us therefore I considered myself alone when trying to understand how to fit in a culture that was but constantly tried to reject me (on the media, on the streets).




Fast-forward to 2012 when I moved in London and realised that actually I wasn’t that different from anyone else. And of course I made friends in Italy, don’t get me wrong, but was I able to experience the same life as my peers? Maybe not. And I want this blog to be for that one kid that feels like the odd one in the bunch and doesn’t understand why some media outlets don’t like them, I want them to see that there is hope, that you can make it if you try and that there is light over that dark tunnel.

What do I mean by self-understanding?

Now not everyone is a make-up lover and not everyone cares about fashion, maybe because they can’t afford it maybe because they just can be bothered with it. And that’s fine, I’m here to tell you that that’s alright, I personally, didn’t wear dresses and heels until I got to England and at that point I was at the end of my teen age years and slowly delving in to adulthood.




Fast-forward to 2018 I’m a girly one and I like make up and elaborate dresses, and that’s okay. I want you to understand that it’s okay to prefer doc’s over stilettos and that understanding what makes you unique is a strength that no one can’t take away from you. Make your querks your super power, understand your super power and use it in your favour. It is important to understand who you are and where you want to go. Set goals for yourself and once you’ve reached them set new ones. And if you need help understanding you there is a fox family that’s hear to listen.




So what are your qwerks what are your goals? Where do you find your empowerment from?

Tell The fox fam, we are here to listen.


Take care of you babe.
