Β I graduated!Β 

5 April 2018 at 05:53

Β  Β  The last few weeks were eventful, chaotic, full of bittersweet memories, yet the one thing that was on my mind the whole time was the fact that I made it.

Β  Β  Β  I graduated from high school.

Β  Β  Β Earnestly speaking, I cannot comprehend how or where the time had flew. It looks like yesterday I was a junior, with an enthusiastic and overly excited face, bad hair and funny clothes, waiting to embark on this new adventure. I was just a happy child, with no clue about what I was going to experience, learn or discover. I have to admit that the thought of growing up scared me at times. I just didn’t want to.Who would like to give up childhood? Who wants to be a grown up?

Β  Β  Nevertheless, high school came with so much more that I could have predicted at the beggining. Happy days, proud achievements, long lasting friends, precious life lessons, a whirlwind of emotions are just a few of the moments that truly shaped me into a better, wiser and happier human being.

Β  Β  As far as I can tell, I had some amazing opportunities during high school to evolve and to exploit the abilities I didn’t believe I had. For instance, I was involved in a couple of national projects from whom I have learned a lot about team work, social skills and patience. My creativity, determination, inspiration and strive were on high demand, always pushing me to outreach myself. The emotional side was developed in ways I didn’t experience before during a particular project, where I discovered that I am blessed in more ways than I can count and that happiness always hides in the littlest of things. You just have to acknowledge this unique feeling and treasure it deeply each day. The results of my work were proudly shown through recognition from my teachers and some diplomas, yet the most important outcome was the feeling of accomplishment and utter excitement while discovering my own self, my own passions and my own desires. These memories would certaintly not leave me anytime soon.

Β  Β  Β  Regarding the lessons that I have come to learn through great and sometimes, difficult ways, I believe they are the essence of my high school years.They weren’t always easy or pleasant enough to bear at the time, yet the fact that I lived them at that certain stage of my life helped me to understand myself better and to prioritize my needs. I realised what path I want to follow. What carreer would make me feel like everyday I’m on a vacation rather than at a boring work place, as well as what is going to bring out the best of me. Some dreams already became reality, some of them not yet. Sure thing is that I am on the right track. Ambition, perseverance, patience and faith never fail to do their magic.

Β  Β Finally, four years went by faster than the wind. Four years filled with memories, beautiful events, complicated feelings, sleepless nights, I was able to get through it all. At the end of this chapter, it is supposed that I am going to be mature and to pave my way towards the future that I am wishing and looking for. This is exactly what I am doing. The funny thing? I am still a child. I always will be. At least this thought eases the guilt whenever I mess something up.

Β  Β  Β  Β  To mark my words, take a look at some of the pictures I have and that shows me even more excited than when I eat ice-cream. One in a million sight,that’s for sure.

Beauty Beneath the Surface

My radio show β€˜Beauty Beneath the Surface’ is here!

Β  Β In a society which has deeply ingrained such unrealistic beauty standards and has put so much pressure on us to always look picture-perfect, it’s sometimes very easy to lose yourself, compare yourself to others especially on social media platforms and constantly feel like you’re not good enough. While easy to get yourself into this downward spiral of hate and body shame, it’s up to you to make a choice: either stay down or rise higher and learn to embrace your flaws and love who you are. As someone who has struggled with my appearance, I understand that while this choice may be difficult at times, it is one of the most important choices we make in life. I trust you will choose carefully.
I produced this radio programme broadcast on Utter Radio for the past few months as part of my final project at university and as a reminder that regardless of what shape, size or culture we belong to, our real beauty resides within us and it is not defined by a number on a scale or by the opinion of other people. We are born to stand out, not to fit in – so just be proud of your perfectly imperfect self. Look closely beneath your own surface and you’ll soon find that you have everything you need to live a happy and fulfilled life.
Many thanks to all my guests for sharing their inspirational stories and valuable advice about the true meaning of beauty and proving that loving yourself is the best thing you can do.

✨No love should be greater or scarier to lose than the love we need to have for ourselves✨

Β  Β I hope this will inspire you to be kind to yourself and to your body. Have a listen if you’d like on SoundCloud below:

Any feedback is much appreciated!

Much love,

Claudia xx
