I am Julie and I am a globetrotter working as a lifestyle blogger and model with a communication and IT graduation degree.
What is the funniest thing about having your blog, This Way?
Meeting different people and getting insight of all the “behind the scenes”, result to many funny and memorable moments.
You consider yourself a citizen of the world, if you had one last place to visit on Earth, where would you go?
My travel addiction has brought me to many amazing places around the world but I really want to discover Cape Town (which I am planning on travelling to this winter for 2 months). Also Guatemala is a place I really want to explore. I have been to Costa Rica, which I really loved and from then I have got a desire to visit Guatemala.
Of everything you have come across, what has given you the most rewarding sense of wonder?
During my yoga teacher training in Costa Rica I learned so much about myself, and life in general. This was an intensive experience I am forever grateful for.
Social media is a fast evolving new channel of influence, there is no particular “right conduct" or rules to follow. As of now, you have about 20K (and growing) followers on Instagram. Do you ever find yourself self-conflicting over a message and the magnitude of impact it could have on your followers? How do you deal with doubt or anxiety from having a social responsibility to a large community?
Due to my work as a blogger I think a lot about what I post and write because I feel a responsibility. My core intention is to influence the world in an inspirational and positive way. My focus is aligned with my own values, what I believe in, and who I am.
What is the most valuable piece of advice you have received in the past two months?
“There is no perfection only progression” - I believe there is no stage in life where you will fell or be perfect – it’s about the progression.
“Make the Now the primary focus of your life” – being present is a powerful tool especially in today’s digital world.
Sophistication is a combination of style, elegance, and details with a twist of something “undefined”.
