Blakely Faces: Alisha Whitworth

As a fashion brand, we interact with models weekly. However, we don't always get the chance to hear their stories and learn about what pursuing a career in the industry entails.

Today, we'd like to introduce you to Alisha Whitworth, a model from Norwich. We wanted to explore how she achieved her goals, what modeling means to her, and her top tips for pursuing a dream career. Get ready to feel a personal connection to her story as we catch up with Alisha!

Life can often get busy, but having a clear perspective on what you want to achieve can help things come into focus. During our time with Alisha, we were interested to hear about her current goals and her vision for the future.

"Manifesting my dream life. That's literally what I'm obsessed with at the moment; I'm working on becoming my best self, being as busy as I can, pursuing my dream career, and building a life that I've always dreamt of with my partner."

Keeping focused on building a dream career can take time and effort, and it can sometimes take work to remain focused when external factors take over. However, Alisha told us, "I think back to when I was a teenager and I say to myself, how is this me? How am I doing this? The more I focus on the positive things and look to see how far I've come, the more focused I am on my goals."

This truly struck a chord with us at Blakely, as we have always understood that progress can often be a journey. However, if you are determined and have a positive attitude, you can achieve what you set out to do.

Embarking on reaching your dream career can often involve trials and tribulations. When it comes to understanding how to deal with it, it can be easier to hear it from somebody who has gone through it. So, with this in mind, we asked Alisha about her experience with this. "My top well-being tip right now is mindset. Work on your mindset. If there's something that you are struggling with in any area of your life, I think it's really good to find a book that can help you with that and think more positively."

"My advice to somebody starting their dream career would be to believe in yourself and keep going. We all have setbacks. There could have been so many times when I could have listened to those setbacks and thought, this isn't for me."

"I didn't listen. I held out, and I kept going. I kept believing in myself. And I once dreamt of where I am now, and it just shows what is possible. So, if me saying this means anything, I did not think I'd be able to do what I'm doing today, and I am proof that it is possible. Just keep going, be resilient and strong, and keep believing in yourself, and you'll definitely get to where you want to be."

Spending time with Alisha has helped to put ideas into perspective. Once you have found a passion that aligns with your future career goals, don't let self-projection or outside opinions get in the way. It's also okay if you're reading this and have yet to learn what the future looks like for you; these things take time. Don't be afraid if those dreams change over time; we all grow and change, so why wouldn't our dreams? So, in the words of Alisha, "Just keep going, be resilient and strong, and keep believing in yourself", and you will find your path.
