Meet sarah deanna, author of ‘supermodel you’

IN THE FAST-PACED WORLD OF MODELING, WHERE BEAUTY OFTEN TAKES THE SPOTLIGHT, IT’S NOT EVERY DAY THAT WE GET A CHANCE TO HEAR THE STORIES BEHIND THOSE STRIKING FACES ON THE RUNWAY.

TODAY, WE ARE THRILLED TO INTRODUCE YOU TO LONGTIME FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE, SARAH DEANNA, WHOSE JOURNEY IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY TRANSCENDS MERE AESTHETICS. SARAH AND ASHA CROSSED PATHS ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO, BOTH FRESH FACES IN A WORLD THAT OFTEN PRIZES YOUTH AND PERFECTION ABOVE ALL ELSE. BACK THEN, SARAH WAS A SHINING EXAMPLE OF NOT JUST A SUCCESSFUL MODEL, BUT A TRUE PROFESSIONAL. SHE WASN’T JUST STRUTTING DOWN THE RUNWAY; SHE WAS BUILDING A CAREER FOR THE LONG HAUL.

HOWEVER, WHAT WASN’T FULLY GRASPED AT THE TIME WAS THE DEPTH OF HER RESILIENCE AND SELF-AWARENESS THAT FUELED HER JOURNEY. IN THIS EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW, WE WILL EXPLORE SARAH’S REMARKABLE PATH THROUGH LIFE AFTER ENDURING CHILDHOOD TRAUMA AND LOSS. WE WILL ALSO UNCOVER HER SECRETS TO CULTIVATING CONFIDENCE THROUGH SELF-CARE AND EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION.

SARAH DEANNA’S STORY IS NOT JUST ABOUT ACHIEVING SUCCESS IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY BUT ALSO ABOUT USING HER PLATFORM TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO EMBRACE A MORE BALANCED AND MINDFUL APPROACH TO BEAUTY AND LIFE. HER JOURNEY FROM A SMALL TOWN IN CALIFORNIA TO THE RUNWAYS OF NEW YORK CITY, AND HER COMMITMENT TO PROMOTING HOLISTIC WELL-BEING MAKE HER A UNIQUE AND INFLUENTIAL FIGURE IN THE WORLD OF MODELING AND WELLNESS.

DISCLAIMER: IT’S CRUCIAL TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT TODAY’S INTERVIEW WILL TOUCH UPON SENSITIVE TOPICS, INCLUDING CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, FAMILY MEMBERS WITH ISSUES RELATED TO ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE, CAR ACCIDENTS, AND THE DEVASTATING SUBJECT OF SUICIDE. IF ANY OF THESE TOPICS FEEL TOO HEAVY OR DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO ENGAGE WITH AT THIS MOMENT, WE WHOLEHEARTEDLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND CONSIDER SITTING THIS EPISODE OUT. FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO LISTEN, WE HAVE INCLUDED ADDITIONAL RESOURCES IN OUR SHOW NOTES TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE SHOULD YOU FIND YOURSELF IN NEED.
