16 Jun What time is it? Time to reinvent myself!
Recently I had to make a hard choice in my personal life. What I had pictured my future to be, suddenly went out the window, and I was left with just me. Although it was the hardest decision I’ve ever made, after the initial shock, I realised that being “just me” opened a world of opportunities.
All my life I’ve always known what my next step was supposed to be. From high school to college in the US, then work in the US & back to Panama, getting my MBA in Milan, then join a multinational corporation in Florence… But as they say, “life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans”.
After a period of soul searching, I have finally found the courage to follow my heart and reinvent myself. As soon as I made that conscious decision, I suddenly felt excited again! So I made a list of all the things I like and I’m passionate about and the ideas started flowing.
I have decided follow my passion for sustainability and find a way to combine that with fashion, a completely new field for me. I want to put my creative abilities to the test, and even let myself make mistakes along the way. So far, I resigned from my very comfortable corporate job, joined the wonderful Camila & Delia as co-founder of OMG Florence!, and signed up for a beginners jewellery class in UAL Central Saint Martins in London.
I’m thrilled to discover where this will lead me. Stay tuned for more!
