Conversations with the Inspiring Rachel Mulenga

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rachel Mulenga.

Rachel, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I have always had a passion for fashion and inspiring other women. I would always share my outfit pictures on my personal Instagram page and get lots of compliments on my style. Early this year I wanted to do more with my love for fashion, so I started a fashion and lifestyle account on Instagram (@stylelikerach). I always thought starting a fashion blog consisted of having the perfect camera and lots of clothes in your closet. However, I started my Instagram page by taking my own pictures with my iPhone and really being creative with the clothes I already had. I received overwhelming support from my followers which motivated me to launch my fashion blog stylelikerach.com. I love fashion and styling and being able to share my style and inspire other women online is very fulfilling to me and I couldn’t be happier.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was a struggle getting the courage to get started in the first place. It took a lot for me to really step out of my comfort zone and just go for it. I was my biggest cheerleader and encourager along the way. I kept going even during the times I felt like quitting the most. I truly believe that every champion has at one point in time felt like quitting, but they became a champion because they never quit. I knew that putting myself out there might come with lots of judgment from others. However, being judged was a risk I was willing to take. It is important for young women starting out to understand that in life you have to be able to dream bigger and take even bigger risks. Stay true to yourself and never compare your journey to someone else’s journey. You are different and unique, no one can offer to this world what only you are capable of offering. The world needs your uniqueness and creativity, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something different. If you are afraid of what people might think of you, the more reason to do it afraid. Be confident. You have what it takes.
