Hey! I'm Arianna.
I have been 6 feet tall since I was about twelve-years-old. My height is one of the first things people notice about me. Many of the other girls in my school were around four-inches shorter, so I felt like an outlier. During my teenage years, I was bullied because of my height and struggled with body image issues. I hid my talent, slouched my 6-foot-tall body, and silenced my voice because I didn’t want to stand out and be judged.
I realized a little while later that my blending in with the others was bad for my health and body (literally), so I stopped slouching and started Standing Tall.
It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made & have made it my mission to help people globally stand tall & speak from the heart. Regardless of your height, I want to empower you to be proud of yourself. Embrace your differences; they are what make you unique. Don’t be afraid of standing out!
Now, I have turned my pain into purpose to help thought leaders develop the courage to go after their dreams & monetize their thoughts. That is my mission.
Awww, Air. I'm so proud of you. You have come such along way since our high school days. Although, we don't get to really see each other much, it's been good to catch up with you through this blog and our online conversations. Keep standing tall and speaking out. This post reminded me of the day when I used to be given nicknames based on my petiteness. I admit, I hated it because it felt like everyone was telling me I wasn't the "norm," which resulted in me standing out. Now, standing out is what I love to do best and fuels some of my career objectives:) My wardrobe says it all - full of bold and bright colours! This blog has become a great chronicle of you and what I always knew was inside waiting to come out. I love how you turned your words into life lessons that anyone can relate to.
