Check out our Q&A with the girl behind Curvy Conscious Inspired!
Q: tell us a little bit about you. Where did curvy conscious inspired come from? Why did you start it?
A: Hi there! So I’m a young professional living in Frederick. Just finished my Master’s in community mental health counseling and finishing up licensing now. I’m super outgoing, supportive, and have an entrepreneurial heart and mind.
I started Curvy Conscious Inspired because I wanted to share my own journey of self-love and acceptance. Since starting it about a year ago, I took some time off to re-evaluate (and finish school *laughs*) the meaning of my blog. Now, I want this space to be a platform.
A place to highlight continued body positivity, body confidence, female empowerment, and fashion.
Q: How long ago did you start the blog?
A: I started and purchased the domain to my blog in September 2016. I did take a four month long hiatus due to being in graduate school, working full-time, and interning. Sometimes you just have to prioritize things, even if you don’t want to. *laughs*
How has working in Frederick made your purpose easier or harder?
I think working and striving to market my blog and purpose has been both rewarding and challenging in the Frederick area. I travel a lot to D.C. for events but love that because Frederick is a small town; there’s so much to manifest and capitalize upon.
Q: And what do you hope to achieve?
eventually I️ hope to build my blog and purpose into my career. Since I’m a month away from becoming a licensed mental health therapist, I️ hope to use my message of body confidence, self-love, and empowerment to create support groups and potentially programs to integrate in our schools teaching children — especially middle school, high school, and even college level, about said topics.
Q: And lastly, do you feel your purpose has been served or do you feel hopeful it is being served?
A: I️ feel as though within my online community, yes, I’m living out a strong portion of my purpose. In this next phase, as I have more flexibility in my schedule, I’m so looking forward to building even further and implementing programs within the Frederick community. We so desperately need positivity and support around our nation, I️ hope to bring a glimmer of sunshine to this town I️ love so dearly.
