Social Media Handle/Username: yleniafrancini
Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is Ylenia and I have been a professional Fashion Creator since 2016.
I graduated in Foreign Languages and Literatures. Only after a few years I specialized in Marketing and Communication. I made yleniafrancini grow from a simple passion to a low cost fashion blog. In 5 years I have reached an audience of over 100,000 followers on Instagram, which has allowed me to work with important brands such as Tally Weijl, Shein, Zaful, Yoins and many others.
Thanks to the quality of my content, I received invitations to participate in super exclusive and niche events such as: Fashion Week, Pitti Uomo, Cosmoprof, Modadamare, AltaRoma, Design Week, Cleofe Finati, Giulia N.
But what makes me happiest and proudest is to see my students achieve results.
What Inspires You Every day? : Anything around me is a source of inspiration.
I read a lot, document, study and try to learn from the best.
Of course each of us is unique and therefore I make mine any inspiration I can get from outside.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: There are several, but the ones that absolutely move me are 3, two of which have also become my tattoos.
The first sentence is a famous song by Vasco Rossi: life is a thrill that flies away, it’s all a balance over madness.
I tattooed this phrase on my back because it always reminds me that life is really short and we have to live it intensely doing what we really love to do.
The second sentence, also tattooed on my arm, says: never look back.
And that’s right … people often turn around thinking about what it was, losing sight of the present they are experiencing.
Only on the present we can we acting and change something.
The last sentence is not my tattoo, but it is fundamental in my life and it says: if you want something in life that you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.
How much truth! This phrase moves me in my days and in the achievement of my goals.
That’s right, if you keep doing the same things you’ll always get the same results.
This is why it is important to get out of the comfort zone and always aim high.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I have many goals in mind, I intend to reach them one by one.
For now, everything I have set my mind to achieve has actually been achieved.
I recently participated in an Italian reality show that for me was a bit of getting involved and seeing how far I could go.
But most importantly, my first book “love is something else” was recently published.
For me it was a great success, it is not easy to write a book and even less when you have to get naked to tell a dark moment in your life.
Of course, I plan to write another book.
Another great goal is to enlarge my Online Business and to be able to teach social media marketing even abroad.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic was a difficult time for everyone.
It has certainly negatively affected the economy, physical and mental health.
Suddenly we found ourselves limited in our daily life and estranged from our family members.
But I still learned a lesson: the pandemic has allowed me to be in deep contact with myself.
Before, I was always in a hurry and didn’t realize the time I didn’t fully live.
In this period I have trained a lot and planned a lot, so I am ready for a 2022 full of news and changes.
What is a message you would like to give others? : The message that I transmit also thanks to my social channels is always positive.
I am convinced that everyone can achieve the desired results, but you must never give up, study, and above all love what you do.
If you strongly desire something, you will find a way to get it.
I don’t like people who give up and always find excuses to justify their failures.
And therefore in my social networks, I also show my failures but with serenity because important goals are not reached without effort and mistakes.
So I’m wrong, I fail too and I work on this to improve and become stronger.
Everything always depends on us alone.
And in the face of failure, many people give up.
This is a huge mistake.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I’d like to say never stop dreaming and do everything possible to make your dreams come true.
I often hear myself told that I am lucky and I want to answer this.
I consider myself a lucky person because I still have my parents and grandparents, and I am in perfect health.
I’m very lucky here.
For the rest it is not luck, but study, effort, sacrifice,
head, determination and willpower
