Random question: You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why? This is a pretty tough question! I’m in love with both pastels and autumn themed tones, that I’d probably choose a mustard colour. I’d pick mustard because it’s bright but a lot more toned down than your typical yellow, and that reflects my personality. I’m quite bubbly and outgoing with my friends and people I know but when meeting new people, it takes a while for me to show my whole true self.
Are you a bold introvert? Have you always been one? (If not, What was the defining moment for you) I wouldn’t say I’ve always been a bold introvert, and the boldness probably stemmed when I turned 20. In my teens and leading up to being 20, I was really shy and would get anxious meeting new people, and speaking in larger groups. When I turned 18 however, things slowly began to change with the support of my friends and I began going on frequent holidays, on nights out and growing in confidence. I think the defining moment however was when I flew to Greece on my own. In that moment, I felt bold and from then on knew I could do anything I put my mind to.
What do you do? (Feel free to expand on any businesses, blogs, jobs etc.) I work in digital marketing, writing content and running social media platforms – and on the side run my blog Della Loves Nutella. As my job is pretty similar to the skills you need to blog, it’s helped me immensely with learning more about how to run and promote my blog.
What are you most proud of?I think I’m most proud of two things: overcoming my anxiety and my blog. I struggled with anxiety for pretty much my whole life and it worsened in my teenage years, however over the past couple of years I’ve managed to overcome the worst of it. And today, I thoroughly enjoy travelling and trying new things which is something I never thought would happen. With my blog, I’ve been running it for the past 5 years and across that period I’ve grown alongside my writing, shared some of my very best moments and shared my thoughts with the world.
Do you feel that your personality trait has helped you achieve your goals? Yes, I definitely do. I’m a very stubborn and determined person, and I think that mindset has helped me work hard to achieve my goals.
What advice do you have for introverts that are worried about chasing their dreams? Just go for it! Life is too short to hide behind those who are seemingly more confident individuals. If you’re dreaming up an idea, don’t let yourself stop you from achieving it. Always believe in yourself!
