Do bloggers affect people’s lives?

I’ve noticed through experience that selling your own brand is all about who you are as a person.
As much as I am selling a dress, I am selling myself.
We sometimes have a hard time believing that “I” can change the world.

I’ve never noticed how I’ve changed peoples’ lives, gave hope and encouraged young adults who are starting out in their career. As I see myself as a regular girl, yet the world sees me as Margalit Azerad.

Through my humbleness I’ve come to realize that I’ve slowly become a public figure in my niche of fashion. Known as “the Orthodox Montreal based designer/stylist “

Once you know who you are, it manifests into self esteem because then peer pressure is out and you won’t get dragged into anything you don’t want to be doing. So thank you! Yes, every single one of you, for believing in me.
Born and raised in Montreal, I’ve graduated from an all girls orthodox school. I’ve learned the values of life, and the importance of pursuing your dreams.

My classmates continued in College & University while I was planning on opening my own Boutique.

It's important that teachers teach students how to find their inner talent so each student is capable of knowing themselves well enough to follow their passion. It's not necessary to seek a higher education in order to be or to feel successful like society makes us believe. Although education is extremely important ,I believe that each individual must find their inner talent as everyone’s born with a talent.

Once you find your talent you will go through school with love and patience as you will be enthusiastic to start your career.

Today, I proudly own my brand that grows daily. I am the one that looks back and sees that 95% of these people who studied day and night are still figuring out what they want to do in life as they are still searching their inner talent.

So do I suggest to everyone to be an entrepreneur?! No, absolutely not.
But I can definitely say that if you see someone with the ambition to start, don’t be the one to stop them.
If you don’t try, you won’t know.
“You’re either going to define yourself for yourself or you're going to let someone else define you “
Most teenagers go further into education because society decided that’s the way - and if you are scared to take a risk it’s because society tells you no. Life is all about talent and work ethic.

Students are aiming for 100%, it’s like all or nothing or else they don’t feel good enough, why? Because that’s what society has taught us.

You could intern in the biggest fashion company, you just have to apply to 500 of them and only one will approve it’s a numbers game.
I’ve received countless email messages from graduating students wanting to open their own brand collection, and it’s always my pleasure answering all of your messages.

Stay tuned for our upcoming blog about
“If I could start over, what would have I done differently.”
With my personal tips for any student looking to be a part of the fashion world.

    Margalit, I was walking downtown Manhattan and bumbed into some friends we starting speaking about new designers..bloggers and I mentioned how I’m so impressed with my friend who started her own business and is slowly striving, I can’t explain to you the joy I had at that moment when they all exclaimed “Margalit Azerad”?! Wait?! You know her?! I felt an excitement I’ve never felt before suddenly I became famous for simply saying I knew you! Margalit I’m not joking my friends all knew who you were and were saying how they wait for your daily Instagram post and are obsessed with your stories. I smiled and said not only is she amazing at what she does but I am blessed to be her friend. Margalit we all love you and continue being as amazing as you are.
