Q1) Tell us a little about yourself!
I am Clara Holmes aka Rollin Funky, I am a Fashion Model and Lifestyle Influencer/Blogger from London and I am a full-time wheelchair with EDS Type 3.
Q2) Tell us about what you do, and why you do it
I started my Fashion & Lifestyle Blog nearly 4 years ago because I wanted to share the positive side of someone living with a disability, because that’s what I am doing - living not just existing. Ever since I was a child, I always wanted to be a model. The nearly 3 years ago I was scouted by my now modelling agency Zebedee management while I was going down the street, I went for a test shoot the next day and was signed to the agency, it is a dream come true!
Q3) What makes you feel courageous?
This sounds strange but fear makes me courageous. Anytime I fear something it makes me want to conquer it because I hate that feeling of fear and I believe we shouldn't fear anything in this world. So, when I face that thing that gave me fear head on, I feel courageous because I achieved/overcome it.
Q4) What is one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?
You won’t always feel like this - you will love yourself, you will be loved, and you will have the best life!
Q5) What is one piece of advice you can give a fellow lady who might be lacking courage?
Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself everyday out loud until you believe it:
You are strong
You are capable
You are amazing
And you can do this
