Me and China went our separate ways. 💃🏽 ⠀
What made me to decline my second modelling contract with China? ⠀
I struggle with the sense of uncertainty and very often doubt my decisions. But it wasn’t the case with this contract. 🤔⠀
I had a plan, I had a priority: the UK and education. ⠀
So choosing between a CHANCE to become a successful model with no guarantees or getting a place at University in England - I made a right choice for myself.🎓 ⠀
Appearance and trends come and go, but the use of knowledge is my power. And if my interest towards the modelling industry may fade with the time for any random reason, I am sure, that my curiosity towards the capacity of our minds will always be there and inspire me to keep going. 🤩⠀
▫️▫️▫️ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Мы с Китаем разошлись, как в море корабли. 💃🏽 ⠀
Что заставило меня отказаться от второго модельного контракта с Китаем? ⠀ ⠀
Я страдаю от чувства неопределённости и очень часто сомневаюсь в правильности своих решений. Но только не в этом случае.🤔⠀ ⠀
У меня был план, у меня были приоритеты: Великобритания и образование. ⠀
Так, выбирая между ШАНСОМ стать успешной моделью без гарантий и местом в университете Англии, я сделала правильный выбор для себя.🎓 ⠀ ⠀
Внешность и тренды приходят и уходят, но, для меня, сила заключается в использовании знаний. И если мой интерес к модельной индустрии когда-нибудь исчезнет ввиду непредвиденных обстоятельств, я уверена, что моё любопытство в отношении возможностей нашего разума всегда будет на месте и станет двигателем моего прогресса.🤩

Well what a weekend!!! If you were here on Saturday, you would know what we mean! 😲
We are absolutely overwhelmed by number of people that queued for hours right out onto the High Street to be one of the first to shop zero waste in our supermarket despite the thrashing winds!
We do sincerely apologise for the long wait which will have impacted your shopping experience....as you can imagine, this was not a regular day (our Sunday has been much steadier 🙌).
Thank you so much for all your support!
The new Clean Kilo family have been absolutely brilliant this weekend and we have been really lucky to find such great staff for our shop.
Finally I’d like to give special thanks to my partner Jeanette who sparked the idea and has supported and directed me throughout.
The Clean Kilo really would not be possible without her!
