WOMEN'S DAY

May 22, 2019 | United Nude

We know that being a woman is something that should be celebrated every day. This day however, gave us the chance to talk to 3 women, that they all have different stories to tell, different ideas and style. What they all have in common, is the need to stay true to themselves, their dreams, and their love for United Nude.

 

We also know that being a woman, has an indescribable amount of beauty but also many obstacles. As a brand, we try to make a woman’s life easier, one step at the time. We create shoes that are made for everyday women, real women, strong women. Each one in their own way, and each one with their own style.

We sat down with Jennifer, Annalisa and Nasi and talked about their childhood dreams, their female idols, their industries and advice to other women. If you want to find out what they had to share with us, keep reading…

NASI

UNCan you introduce yourself to us? What are you doing in life right now?

N: My Name is Nazareth Yemane and I’m 25 y/o. I’m originally from Eritrea but I was born and raised in Sudan until the age of 9 then moved to Italy and grew up here. At the moment I work as a sales assistant for a clothing brand and simultaneously I’m working on my modeling career as a freelance, and by night I work as a PR for a club in Milan.

UN: What's the best part in being a woman?

N: Oh, it’s so fun to be a woman lol. I think we are sweet and generous creatures and our hyper sensitivity allowed us to perceive the world in a different way. We can create life and in the meanwhile running a business and succeed. I like our power! And of course the superficial part of it such as dressing and the make up.

UN: What empowers you?

N: For me is very important to stay authentic and true to myself, it’s my main principle that leads my life and that makes me feel powerful.

UNDo you have a female idol? Someone you look up to? Who are they and why do they inspire you?

N: Actually, I’m not the kind of person who gets overwhelmed by the fame of somebody but I do split the persona from the person and try to focus more on the qualities that I like about them or on the things that they’ve accomplished! So, I look up to anybody that inspires me or has something new to teach me and it could be ANYONE not necessarily somebody famous.

UN: Do you have any advice for other women?

NMy only advice is to be authentically yourself, and this is applicable in every field of life. Stay true yourself no matter what, and remind yourself ‘YOU ARE THE SHIT’. 

UN: If you could go back in time and give advice to your younger self, what would you say? 

N: I would have a speech for every topic of life to tell my younger self about, but one would be definitely to stay “woke” meaning that every information that comes from the outside can be manipulated or even fake so do your research and filter through your own experience the things that you are been told and to go straight to the university. Education is key. 

ANNALISA

UN: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Where are you from? What is your profession?

A: I’m Annalisa, I’m born and raised in Milan and I’m in love with my city. I’m a PR in fashion industry with a personal twist in music.

UN: What did you want to become as a grown up when you were a child?

A: I was convinced that I would work as a biologist and that I would discover a way to defeat the urban pollution and global warming.

UN: Do you have a female idol? Someone you look up to? Who are they and why do they inspire you?

A: I have a lot of Idols in the contemporary culture, from Miranda Julia ‘till M.I.A,
they are eclectic and with urge to communicate in a very authentic way, they didn’t forget to fight for community from ordinary things ‘till big national causes and they are the kind of girls I want to be an inspiration on the way to my daughter. We do not have to be brutal to be a feminist, nor should we forget to have fun when we talk at high levels.

UN: Have you faced any challenges in your life because you are a woman? If so, can you share that with us? How did you face this challenge?

A: I'm lucky to be surrounded by situations and people where feminism is not a battle to fight. I have not faced situations in which me being a woman has limited me: but I am ready to expose myself for this, in every step I take. because unfortunately I know that not everyone is as lucky as me.

UNWithin the industry you work in, do you think it is difficult for women? If so, why? 

AYes
. Even though in the fashion industry there’s a lot of girls (pr, communications etc), 90% of the top positions are occupied by men.

UNIf you could go back in time and give advice to your younger self, what would you say? 

A: Don’t be shy, raise your voice to say what you think. And do not worry about your eyebrows: there will always be “a new BIG trend”.

JENNIFER

UN: What should we know about you? Tell us a little bit about yourself.

J: My mom’s from London and my dad is from Italy, so i’m bilingual and a mix of two cultures, I have had very different professions, now I am an English teacher and mom of 4 beautiful kids.

UN: Within the industry you work in, do you think it is difficult for women? If so, why?

J: No, I think that women are perfect teachers, it’s a very women oriented sector, so I feel definitely comfortable and at ease.

UN: If you could go back in time and give advice to your younger self, what would you say?

J: I would say, sometimes be a little more selfish.

UN: Do you have a female idol? Someone you look up to? Who are they and why do they inspire you?

 JMy grandmother, she is a great woman who has dedicated a life to family.
