At The Vida Agency, our team is committed to telling important stories, igniting positive change through communications and amplifying the voices of the unheard and underserved. Our team has a myriad of skills and talents and we believe it’s an honor to use them to tell the important stories of communities with important voices.
More than that, we’re incredibly proud to be a women and minority-owned business. We’re inspired by the many social movements of the last year that have ignited change on important issues – #TIMESUP and the Women’s March barely scratch the surface. We know there’s much work to be done – we must continue to stand up and raise our voices in the interest of gender equality, access to education, equal opportunity and more.
So in celebration of International Women’s Day 2018, we’d like to share words of wisdom, knowledge and inspiration on behalf of the women of our team who make The Vida Agency fearless, bold, inclusive, hopeful and most of all – fierce. Our words come in multiple languages, with images of our mothers and daughters, from an array of backgrounds and life experiences.
We celebrate our diversity and voices today and every day. Why? Because it’s these exact things that make our world great.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine…” – Marianne Williamson
Atribuyo mis éxitos en esta vida a la enseñanza moral, intelectual y física que recibí con tanto amor por parte de mi madre. A como ser una mujer fuerte, justa y luchar por mis ideales. Hoy más que nunca me siento orgullosa de ser mujer, de mis raíces y de los grandes avances que cada día estamos logrando en los diferentes campos profesionales a nivel mundial. #sermujer
“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.”
“Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy-washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all–look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.” – Amelia Olson
