I truly believe that in order to be successful in your career you have to surround yourself with inspirational people. One of my favourite discoveries of 2015 was Cynthia Ayoub! I had the chance to meet Cynthia during a fashion event and immediately fell in love with the kind of woman she is.
At first glance, she appeared to be very reserved and even shy but once we started talking I realized how fierce she was. She has accomplished so much in so little time and this is only the beginning for her! Cynthia is the CEO and Founder of Dyosah Jewellery, a high-end jewelry and luxury crystal lingerie lines that empower feminine yet daring women. What surprised me the most about her was that she has a Bachelor in Biochemistry in Lebanon and a Master in Environment and Sustainable Development in Montreal. A true citizen of the world! And who would of guessed she was a scientist? How can a young woman's new body jewelery brand be featured in prestigious publications such as Vogue UK, Glamour UK, Brides magazine and Montreal Times, without having any business background? She actually developed her entrepreneurial skills on her own by reading and learning from numerous business and management books as well as by assisting to several related workshops.
Aside from being a girl boss, her latest endeavour is to become Miss Universe Canada 2016! She is part of the finalists and she is looking to have the platform to inspire other young women to thrive in their careers and give back. She already started by organizing and hosting a charity event for the Operation Smile Foundation, which raises money to provide free surgeries to children around the world that suffer from cleft lip, cleft palate or other facial deformities. The Smile Because You Can event will take place on May 1st 2016. I will of course be joining the event and invite you to participate to a day filled with fun activities for all ages!
You will find some of my favourites pieces from her latest #IamAQueen Collection, while awaiting for her new line that will be out very soon!
