Hello my lovelies, so if you follow me on my Instagram _sophiepjx you’ll know that my new series Behind the Screens are interviews in to who these amazing people are that are part of the creative industry. Hitting off on episode one I talk to Veronica Zaccagnini, who is 20 years old and lives in Italy. Veronica talks about her time at Rome Fashion Week and how Miley Cyrus is her biggest influence.
What were you doing before blogging and how did you get in to it?
I created my blog last summer after I finally felt ready and secure to do it. I do regret the fact that I’ve waited so long because I was afraid to be judged by other people. I did it and I can say that it has brought me cool opportunities.
Amazing that you overcame that fear. Everyone feels like that at first, I sure did.
What’s the best thing you’ve done so far within your blog?
The biggest thing that I’ve done with blogging was of course to attend ALTAROMA in January which is also called Rome Fashion Week. It was amazing.
Who is your biggest influence?
My biggest influence…my there are a lot but I think I have to say Miley Cyrus because it’s like we grew up together. I think she taught me to be myself without being ashamed of it. During the years it was like she was always there for me, thanks to her voice and music.
What is your favourite and least favourite part about blogging?
My favourite part about blogging is when I create, I’m a very creative person and I always have billions of ideas and when I can turn them in to reality, it’s amazing.
The least favourite part has to be a part of the community, because sometimes we pay attention only to the numbers that are not always true and less to the content, that is what I think really matters.
Three words to describe you
Three words to describe me…that’s hard…kind, creative and shy.
How would you describe your personal style?
I don’t really have a personal style…for me fashion is a way to show ourselves without talking and it really depends on how I’m feeling in the morning. What I know is that I don’t like the girly style with a lot of pink dresses if you know what I mean.
Advice to bloggers
My advice to bloggers that are starting now or are already in the industry is to be themselves. To think about what they want to create and just to do it instead of looking at what everyone else does, because it’s not easy to make ourselves seen in the crowd if we are all the same. Just be you, and DO IT. I know it’s scary because we think a lot about what others may think, but it’s for you. It may not be for a lifetime but it can bring you great opportunities and emotions that you will miss if you don’t jump in.
Blog: Style and tell blog
Thank you so much for reading my lovelies, I hope you enjoyed reading my first interview as much as I enjoyed writing it. Go follow Veronica on her social media channels, her feed has amazing photographs on them! I shall see you next Wednesday for the second episode of ‘Behind the Screens’.
