Introducing Me!



NAME:


Carly Portch

LOCATION:

Australia

AGE:

About to celebrate my 21st!

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR:

Not long had other blogs before but was not as passionate about them as this one

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION THE MEDIA GIVES OF WOMEN:

That only the women that achive the 'star' status such as fame or money deserve to be written about, I feel that they are not the only women making achievements yet they are the only ones that are being given a stage. I think the media is very much lacking diversity and its my personal mission to change this!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU THE MOST:

This blog and how it is being received! I always believed that this kind of thing was exactly what women needed, to enhance themselves and celebrate it not being told how to change it! I am also inspired by random acts of kindness as cheesy as that sounds it always pulls at my heartstrings.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR SPARE TIME:

Blogging, Research, Friends, Family, Beach, Travel, Read and I love a good poker game!

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO START THIS BLOG:

The fact that I feel women need to realise how fabulous they really are and that they dont need to spend a lot of money or date a lot of men or change their appearance to see this! This stuff is all fun but it is not the essence of what women are really about we are natural multi taskers and the amount of amazing stories I have heard of women around me and what they achieve and have to share made me realise that it needs to be shared and nurtured in a positive way! I also feel that womens cultural devides can be closed a lot through sharing, we are not as different as we think reguardless of our geographical location. I hope that any woman who comes across this blog shares, that is my main aim. To share and learn which ultimately leads to understanding and then growth.


DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE DISH:

I am a woman of simple tastes a good curry (not too hot) or curly fries suits me just fine!

YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO SPEND TIME:

The beach so relaxing!

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE A WOMAN:

EVERYTHING!

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED WAS:

Honestly, it would have to be follow your dreams as cliche as that sounds. It means a lot for me because I feel that even if you dont suceed if you give them a chance you have been true to yourself and can have no regrets!
