Women In The World: 5

Good morning my loves! I have been drastically lacking in the inspiration department lately. Not being happy with the overall appearance of my blog plus not having any new fresh ideas has been frustrating. Writing for my blog about topics I love is one of my favorite things to do but for some reason I have had absolutely no motivation to do so recently. I decided to stick to my roots and continue interviewing women who I find inspiring and fun to chat with! Anyways, today's segment of Women In The World is awesome, and I hope you love reading all of the interviews just as much as I have!

Katri Mizula:

Age: 20
Location: Montague, MA
Occupation and dream job: I currently do a few little part time jobs, which I like a lot! It keeps me from getting bored. My dream job would probably be a therapist specifically working with people with eating disorders or a nutritionist/personal trainer or a fitness model! But also maybe a stylist or makeup artist! I’m not really sure yet but I love science and health and the whole fashion scene.

1. If somebody gave you an all expenses paid dream vacation, where would you go, and what would you do? 
I would totally go to Greece! Or the Maldives. Somewhere really beautiful and light and near water.
2. Best compliment you have ever received?
“I’d trust you with my life.” I’m not sure if it counts as a compliment but I took it as one.
3. If you could host a dinner party with five people, dead or alive, who would you invite?
Mother Teresa, Michelle Obama, Coco Chanel, Queen Elizabeth II, and Maya Angelou.
4. All time favorite song?
Hello, I’m In Delaware by City and Colour

5. What goal are you working towards at the moment?
I’ve been working towards this goal for awhile now- I want to be strong and healthy. Physically, I try not to focus on weight anymore since it’s counterproductive to my recovery so I just go with how my body feels and what I can accomplish. Mentally, I’m just trying to find myself and inner peace and happiness.

Abbie Boswell Cusimano:

Age: 17
Location: Shelburne Falls, MA
Occupation and dream job: I work at an ice cream/fudge shop. My dream job is to be a social worker.

1. What is your biggest passion in life?

I think my biggest passion in life is sports and exercising. I love the feeling of going to yoga, the gym or just for a run before bed and waking up feeling sore. I feel that it is such an accomplishment.

2. Are you a morning person or night owl? 

I am such a morning person. I love waking up in the morning to see the sun shining.

3. Who has had the biggest impact on your life so far, and why? 

The person who has the biggest impact on my life is the person that saved me. I don't know how to put this into words. But she was my social worker when I was taken away from my parents. She always knew what was best for me and would go out of her way for my happiness. She literally saved my life and because of her, I want to be a social worker.

4. What's your favorite song to dance to? 

My favorite this to dance to is Don't Stop Believing by Journey. I dance to that song on the bus to any field hockey games with my team!

5. What's your favorite thing to order at your local coffee shop?

My favorite thing to get at Shelburne Falls Coffee Roasters is a vanilla latte.

Maya Staples:

Age: 17 Location: Northampton, Massachusetts Occupation and dream job: I currently work at happy valley which is thus really sweet store in town, I love it! I hope one day to be a social worker/ therapist/ life coach/ meditation teacher I know it's a lot, but I am very passionate about all these things, and I believe that everyone should follow and chase everything they are passionate about in their life. The world needs passionate people who are doing things they love, it makes the world a better, more loving place. 

1. What is your all time favorite thing to make yourself for breakfast?
I love acai bowls with pumpkin seeds, coconut, flax seed, and chia seeds. I also like oatmeal with raisins, cinnamon, maple syrup and chia seeds!

2. What inspired you to become vegan?
I had been feeling very run down and just wanted a life style change. My uncle has been vegan for 15 years and that really inspired me. I grew up in a pretty healthy household with organic food but I decided to take it upon myself to go vegan myself. After further educating myself on how awful eating animal products are for the environment and the animals (obviously.) I can't imagine going back to eating animal products.

3. What is something you’ve always wanted to try but have been too scared to?
I want to go paragliding, so I really hope I get the opportunity to do that soon. The idea of not having much control terrifies me but I know that it would probably be a life- changing experience

4. Is there a documentary or book that really changed the way you thought about something? 
There are so many wonderful books and documentaries that have impacted my life greatly. The Four Agreements by Miguel Don Ruiz is incredible, everyone should read it. Forks over knives is an incredible documentary as well as Cowspiracy if you want to know more about a plant based diet/veganism; those are the movies to watch. The best documentary that completely changed my life was the movie Human. There are 3 parts and it is on Youtube. It's absolutely incredible, changed my life for good.

5. Would you ever consider getting a tattoo, if so what would you get and why?
I don't think I would because in my family that would be something that would upset my grandparents and parents. If I were to get one, I would probably get something with some sort of meaning, maybe the Chinese symbol for love ( I am not very original).

Jaimee White:

Age: 20 
Location: Turners Falls, MA 
Occupation and dream job: When I am away at school, I work as a Sales Associate at Urban Outfitters. When I am home, I work at subway. However, my dream job would be an event planner and/or public relations specialist for a large company like Livenation. I think it would be super cool to plan festivals, races, and other events and coordinate them all.
1. Where do you get your style inspiration from?
My style inspiration comes from all over. As for bloggers, my all time favorite is ‘hellokatyxo,’ her style is really similar to mine. However, a lot of my inspiration comes from working at Urban Outfitters. It’s a really trendy, laid-back company to work for, and I have gotten a lot of my style trends from them.
2. What's your absolute favorite thing to do in Boston?
Going to school in a suburb of Boston, I have the luxury of going into the city whenever, but also having a small-town feel. I really love walking around Faneuil Hall, and grabbing lunch in Quincy Market. Also, nothing beats the shops on Newbury St. There are a lot of fun things to do in Boston; it is hard to just pinpoint one!
3. If you could travel the world, which are the five places you’d never miss?
Traveling the world is my #1 thing to do after college graduation. Although I want to explore outside of the US, there are still other states in the US that I want to see! So, if I could travel… I would love to go to 1) Colorado 2) Oregon 3) Antigua 4) MyKonos, Greece 5) Thailand.
4. Starbucks order?
When in doubt, strawberry acai it out? I always get a venti strawberry acai refresher! They’re so delicious, not loaded with calories, and are actually… refreshing. However, occasionally I will get a craving for a caramel frappe.
5. If you got stuck in the elevator and were forced to listen to only one song, which would it be?
If I got stuck in an elevator and could only listen to one song, it would definitely be Fast Car by Tracy Chapman. I could play it on repeat and never get sick of it. An oldie but goodie.
