I have had the pleasure of connecting and meeting Veronika via Instagram. She is the co-founder of Fit generation apparel with her Husband.

It’s all about defying the norms especially for us hijabi Muslim women who struggle to live a healthier active lifestyle without compromising on our faith and values. What Fit Generation apparel has created is a product as well as a platform for all to come together and empower one another to live a healthier lifestyle.

Preserved Identity

A social enterprise making an impact on those in Palestine. When asked why did you start a social enterprise and your motive behind it? Her response was simple “It stems from always having a deep-rooted connection to Palestine and being passionate about the cause and wanting to bring awareness and education, it’s the need to have a Palestinian voice and identity present. Getting frustrated and upset seeing what is happening in Palestine created a need to do something about it, turning that passion into something that can make a difference at a humanitarian level”

Facebook :

Finding something that makes you happy and brings out the passionate entrepreneurial side in you is all about trial and error, you have to accept that some things won’t work for you, or people who you love won’t support you with your crazy ideas that you may have, but that’s ok! At least you gave it a go. 

Many of the Instagrammers. Businesses above are run by mum or full-time workers, but their passion for what they love to do is found through the support of the people around them. There will be people who are not happy with what you’re doing but you have to not think about others and just do what you want to do, follow your passions. It’s these sort of situations that motivate and drive you to be successful.

If you have a dream and a passion to do something, Just do it! No matter how bizarre your idea sounds to others, it’s always worth it.
