Alex Morella, the unapologetic, confident, fat babe, is a Frederick blogger who advocates for mental health, body positivity, and inclusivity in our world. Check out our Q&A with the girl behind Curvy Conscious Inspired!
Q: Where did curvy conscious inspired come from? Why did you start it?
A: Hi there! So I’m a young professional living in Frederick. Just finished my Master’s in community mental health counseling and finishing up licensing now. I’m super outgoing, supportive, and have an entrepreneurial heart/mind.
I started Curvy Conscious Inspired because I wanted to share my own journey of self-love and acceptance. Since starting it about a year ago, I took some time off to reevaluate the meaning of my blog. Now, I want this space to be a platform.
TFW it’s Monday so you give your best power stance and smile 👊 – – It’s a new week beautiful souls! Comment below to tell me how you’re feeling. Good or bad, sometimes is nice to express how you feel! I’ll start first…I have a job interview today so I’m feeling both excited and nervous 🤗😬 #wishmeluck – – #powerstance #monday #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #checkin #freshstart #emotionalwellness #holisticwellness
Q: What do you hope to achieve?
A: Eventually, I️ hope to build my blog and purpose into my career. Since I’m a month away from becoming a licensed mental health therapist, I️ hope to use my message of body confidence, self-love, and empowerment to create support groups and potentially programs to integrate in our schools teaching children (especially middle school/high school/ and even college level) about said topics.
Q: How has working in Frederick made your purpose easier or harder?
A: I think working and striving to market my blog/purpose has been both rewarding and challenging in the Frederick area. I travel A LOT to D.C. for events, but love that because Frederick is a small town, there’s so much to manifest and capitalize upon.
Q: Do you feel your purpose has been served or do you feel hopeful it will be?
A: I️ feel as though within my online community, yes, I’m living out a strong portion of my purpose. In this next phase, as I have more flexibility in my schedule, I’m so looking forward to building even further and implementing programs within the Frederick community. We so desperately need positivity and support around our nation, I️ hope to bring a glimmer of sunshine to this town I️ love so dearly.
