Happy New Year everyone and welcome to YouMe Land!
I’ve been wanting to create a space for us to interact and get to know each other more intimately for such a long time – and it’s finally here! A place where I can share in-depth about my passions, projects and scenes of my personal life. I could not think of a more exciting way to kick off 2018 than launching my own site!
2017 was quite a year for me. It was the year I graduated from college, started my second platform, built my dream team, and worked on numerous projects close to my heart. It was also the year I quit my full-time job to pursue my passion, received tons of rejections, was hit by a car and became very ill in the last few months. Many of you might not know about some of these aspects of my life because I’m usually too scared or unsure when it comes to sharing the unpleasant moments of my life: the moments that aren’t so glamorous. This is something I feel guilty about and something I desperately want to change in the upcoming year–allowing myself to be as genuine as possible with all of you.
So much has happened over the past 365 days that no word is strong enough to describe the full range of emotions I’ve experienced. I truly appreciate the good moments as well as the hard times that have helped me learn and grow into a stronger person.
For the first time in years, I decided to take a month off to think about what I truly want in life and who I aspire to be. Now that I am well-recharged, I am ready to take on 2018 with full force and I can’t wait to give you all my best!
With that being said, let’s get intimate and use this space to further enrich our relationships beyond the Instagram level!
Thank you all for your generous support and kindness. 2018, bring it on!!
Happy New Year,
