Hi, I’m Velena!
It’s a pleasure virtually meeting you!
Little backstory on me,
I am an overly talkative, open-minded, inquisitive, pizza-loving, and sarcastic individual. I think it’s also worth noting that I am short. Although my physical appearance has nothing to do with this blog, I just felt like giving a clearer picture.
Anyways, I also love traveling, eating, and conspiracy theories.
I tend to be the person in the room with the most controversial opinion, and I will not back down from it until I am presented with some considerable facts.
I have OCD and ADHD tendencies, and my mind tends to move a million miles a second.
I have a lot to say, yet not very many people to say it to. That’s where this blog comes into play.
These last 3 years have brought some serious changes in my life.
I won’t get too much into the details, but I now have significantly fewer people that I consider to be a part of my life. It’s been pretty peaceful if I do say so myself.
Although I thoroughly enjoy my own company, I thrive off of social settings where I can be the overly loquacious person that I am. I tried making more friends, but I kept encountering shallow people.
So, what was the next best solution? Writing!
Although I enjoy it now, writing hasn’t always been at the top of my list of things to relish in. In the past, the only place where writing was involved was in English, and I hated English.
The books were always insanely boring, and I don’t like having to answer multiple-choice questions about what the blue curtains were supposed to mean.
It wasn’t until my freshman year of college, when I was allowed to choose my own topics, that I truly realized how much I enjoyed it.
Now, years later, here I am with a blog. It’s crazy how much things can change.
The objective of Glamorous Growth is not only to release my thoughts, but it’s to also connect with a community of like-minded people and inspire those who were in the same place I was. Constantly putting others first, not valuing myself or my boundaries.
Glamorous Growth is meant to show you how to break those bad habits and what to replace them with. This is a space that encourages putting yourself first and learning how to stick up for what’s right for you.
The core foundations of GG are:
- Building up your confidence

- Learning how to truly be happy no matter the circumstances.
Even if I only inspire one person, I would be overwhelmingly honored and grateful for it.
Thank you for taking out time in your day to visit Glamorous Growth; it means more than you’ll ever know.
