Way too often we forget that we have power. Not through money, status or other physical things. But through our voice.
Is it modest to speak up? To raise my voice? To be truthful and go against what society expects me to believe? To talk about taboos? To share my journey through the lows just as through the highs? How can I gain momentum without compromising my values? Do I want people to know that it’s ME behind this brand?
All this and more went through my head when I started to build a personal brand while trying to navigate my female Muslim identity in business.
What I’ve learned: Use your voice. SPEAK UP. Share your diversity.
There are so many different ways to create content which don’t include your presenting your beauty (as society experts) revealing your name or even showing your face!
However you might define the term “modest”, we have all at some point negotiated whether we should show ourselves on camera or on photos.
In this video, I show you the most effective content forms to create a brand without being on camera. Let me know in the comments whether you would like more videos on “Modest Branding”, inshallah.
