I would have never fathomed I would be modeling fitness apparel... <>
My name is Senada Greca. I was born in Albanian and loved my life there as a child. I grew up under a communist regime, where food and other necessities were limited. It never dawned on me that in other parts of the world, people not only didn’t struggle to have these basic needs fulfilled, but they had them in plenitude.
But it didn’t matter. I truly was happy just playing outdoors with my friends. Never the best, and always the youngest in my circle of friends, but I damn sure tried. I was a tomboy that loved climbing trees and riding my bicycle till late at night. I was never praised for my looks... but rather the opposite... And I never thought of myself as beautiful or deserving of any compliments (something that I am still learning to embrace). I was told to stay on the straight and narrow and focus on being an A+ student. That was my only chance to make something of myself. And that I did. Always strived to be the best in class, graduated college with the highest honors, acquired my MBA and worked in the corporate world... with little gratification.
Fast forward to now... while still having “a day job” I also get to do what I LOVE! I get to share my workouts with you. I get to work with awesome companies such as @ryderwear and, to be featured on their feed to represent their beautiful clothes, is such an honor. To hear your positive comments, to be told I am beautiful, and strong, and an inspiration fills my heart with joy.
But where I truly found my strength and appreciation for my outward beauty is through getting stronger physically and mentally. I overcame eating disorders through utilizing food to fuel movement and not appearance. And the latter... appearance, came secondary, and rather a byproduct than a goal. And that, to me is most sustainable.
So my friends, moral of the story, find strength in getting stronger. Take care of your body and your mind will get stronger in the process. Find the beauty and strength within and it will shine outwards 🌟
