Meet Esraa, Egyptian content creator based in Turin
Esraa is a very young Egyptian girl who has lived in Turin since she was two. She is a university student, a content creator and also a model for brands and projects.
Esraa thinks about her social media more like a book, where she can show who she really is and everything she loves to do without any filter. When she started to wear the veil, Esraa wanted to show through social media that the value of a person doesn’t depend on religion or what you wear.
She often encounters troubles with people who are close minded; it happened often that she has been laughed at. Esraa believes that Italy is slowly changing its perception of the MODEST world, allowing this universe to have its own space and ensuring more awareness of different standards of beauty. When she feels lost she normally takes breaks to think what would be her next move. Thanks to her family, her partner and the people who follow her Esraa has the strength to keep going and pursue her path. Her biggest dream is being able to work with established brands and being published in a magazine.
Never give up on your dreams. If you have a goal, try and try again until you reach it. Everyone has their time, don’t be hard on yourself. The important thing is to reach that goal.
