I am so excited that tomorrow I will be speaking to 325 girls at my high school, Fontbonne Academy, as the closing speaker for their Love Your Body Week! That being said, I had to post some words of wisdom from a fellow high school student, Junior, Camaya Matthews!!!! If this is the perspective of our young, up and coming fabulously fierce girls, we’re really in good shape!!! Enjoy!
Interesting Fact/Interests/Hobby/Something you think the LFF World to Know. I was in a pageant this past summer where I won two one hundred dollar scholarships in both fitness, and elegance
What does Living Fabulously Fierce Mean to You? Living fabulously fierce to me means living your life to the absolute fullest and enjoying every second of it while being a little sassy.
If you had to describe your brand in three words, what would those three words be? Why? Unique, persistent, successful. I used these three words because I like for all of my work to stand out and be different from others, I also think that persistence helps with that. You have to continue trying and putting your best effort forward so that you can be successful.
How do you live your brand? I live it by continuing to be myself and not be afraid to do something different. Also by continuing to push myself to my full potential and even when I mess up I continue trying until I get it right.
What would you say has been your greatest accomplishment? My greatest accomplishment was going to China, to travel different countries and learn more about their culture.
Biggest Challenge that you’ve overcome? The biggest challenge I have overcome was accepting myself as I am and not trying to change myself to fit other people’s standards.
My brand is Fabulously Fierce? Please finish the phrase with your own definition: I am Camaya Matthews and I am Fabulously On Purpose!!!
What advice do you have for young girls, our up and coming fabulously fierce, like you, around being their best selves or anything you’d like to share with them in particular? Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing focus on you and where you want to go so that you can live your life ‘doing’ and not watching. Sometimes you’re going to stand out, remember that is never a bad thing. There is only one you in the world, embrace it and enjoy it.
