Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a lawyer. My oldest friends tell stories of a 7 year old me in class with them drawing pictures of 'A Judge' when given the task of putting on paper 'What you want to be when you grow up'. I'd always been a daddy's girl and daddy, this little girls superhero, was a Doctor who at the time was studying Law just out of interest. I always felt that my compassion meter was off the scale so working my way up in the legal system was how I'd help people. And that's exactly what I did. Law and Politics were my biggest passions so I went on to study them for 2 years - toying for a while with the option of becoming a politician instead - and then holy cow came the big Law School where I got my degree after another gruelling 3 years. The only problem was that I'd been modelling and blogging in between this time too, how could the two correlate? Black letter Vs creative, two very different worlds. I remember once being told I couldn't be "a jack of all trades" and how insulting and disheartening I found it. I realised quickly that there were many routes to building a platform where your voice could be heard but that wasn't the point... most importantly I learnt that YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUT YOURSELF IN A BOX. You don't have to be either beautiful OR smart. Strong OR sensitive. Conservative OR creative. This OR that. That's not how it works and you sure as hell don't have to listen to anyone who tells you that.
Because of this I absolutely love that design house Georg Jensen has replaced models with role models in the new global campaign above to show that women can be themselves, make their own success and most importantly that: You can never be too much you. It spoke to me on a personal level when I read that Georg Jensen stands for 'women who embrace their voices and create their own path - and don’t let anyone else define them.' I'm so inspired by this campaign and I hope it can inspire you too.
