Me in Marie Claire UK!
Guys, my Marie Claire feature is finally here!
I saw the magazine this morning and rushed to buy it, anxious to end several weeks' worth of nerve-wracking wondering: what photo had they picked? Would I look as awkward as felt? What would they write about Vilda? What did my mentor, Poppy, say about me?
My doubts were crushed when I saw this amazing photo of us (on Poppy's balcony with a fantastic view!) and a very well-written interview that gave a good picture of my experience (and, I hope, Poppy's) of the Marie Claire Inspire & Mentor Scheme. Being mentored was a wonderful experience and I'm not sure that Vilda would have ever existed without it.
It feels surreal that, just a year and a half after moving to London, I'm staring at my face in one of the UK's biggest women's magazines. And my dream business is actually out there, with a web address and readers and articles. It may not be huge yet, but it exists. Just knowing that I did this is hands-down the most satisfying thing I've ever done in my life.
