Interview with "Project You"


    
      Please welcome Alyssa from Project You (check out her personal blog Just Puttin It Out There)!  I first discovered Project You when reading a post of a fellow blogger, Gracie Bella Butterfly, and I fell in love with the idea and story behind it.  The message that Project You brings to women is powerful and vital in the world today.  I invited Alyssa to share more about the cause and what's behind it.  Take a peak and join in the fun!

      Where are you from and what do you love about your hometown? I’m from Sydney, Australia. The thing I love most about my little town is walking into a store and being greeted with “hi Alyssa, how are you, how’s the family”. The strong sense of community is comforting! 


Describe yourself in three words. Cheerful, spontaneous, passionate

What is Project You? Project You is your own mini cheer squad. It sends you a weekly email cheering you on, or complimenting you – something that will make you smile!


How did Project You start? Project You started after a chat with my nana. We were discussing that girls are losing confidence and do silly things to get boys attention and think thats normal. There is not really anyone telling us we rock, just the media saying nasty things. I wanted to do something to change that.

What makes Project You unique? Along with being your own personal cheer squad, you become co-owner of a pair of heart sunglasses! There are two pairs of heart glasses travelling between PY members around the world, sisterhood of the travelling pants style!

What is one Project You post that you adore? I love them all. But I think the funny ones are the best. 
      Where is the furthest corner of the world Project You has touched? From Australia everything seems far  but I think the furthest would be Norway.

      How do you get involved? to get involved you just need to send an email to project.you(at)live.com.au and you will be added to the list. You can also check it out at the blog or the facebook .
