Who am I?

Hi there, my name is Sofia and i'm a 45 year old Swedish/Greek hairstylist and make up artist. I love fashion and beauty. I'm an outgoing,urbane ,and creative person,that is also an entrepreneur . I want to join The Fashion Hero Tv series so i can encourage and inspire others on how they can bring out their inner beauty. And for once i would love to be the model myself and have someone else to do my hair and make up : ) , and modeling is something i wanted to do for a long time . Over the last ten years i've been through many battles and strong winds has been constantly blowing on me. Despite that i've been trying to push forward with optimism and hopes for a better future. I have traveled a lot through the years and lived in different countries like England (London), U.S ,Florida (Fort Lauderdale) Spain(Marbella) and Greece Athens&Crete. After that i've felt like i have an easy way to adapt to different cultures and lifestyles . As a woman over 40 i've often been questioned about why i'm not married or have any children . I always gone my own way and not what anyone expected of me and i have experienced a lot of things that i don't think i would have if i had a family . I'm also a survivor from the disease called Lemierre's syndrome that nearly took my life 14 years ago. I was hospitalized ,and put on life support ,fortunately i survived after a long fight and with a small chance of survival. My journey these years has been with both ups and downs but i learned so much from all of that and especially from the mistakes i've made. Nowadays i just try to find joy in everything i do ,and one thing i know is ,that you have to take care of yourself first of all !! I want to conquer any obstacle i have or will have in the future and prove to the nay-sayers that anything is possible with the right mindset and a positive attitude!!


What do I think about The Fashion Hero TV Series?

I love The Fashion Hero TV series and i think that it is a great show that brings fashion and beauty to a hole new level. With diversity in beauty , and with role models from all around the world it makes a new entry to the world of fashion that changes the old way to look at the beauty standards. It's a great initiative that will bring more people into the fashion industry, and i believe that it is going to have an impact and will probably help to make the changes on how today's stereotypes looks like who has been over-represented by big brands in beauty and fashion since a long time back.


Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero?

Because i have the expertise and at the same time i have my boundaries. I think today's media and influencers are focusing to much on perfection of the beauty standards and many times with a sexual objectification. I believe in the power of all people's beauty no matter what race,age,size or religion they have. I also believe that you can make anyone look fantastic with different styles" like" with new outfits , hair colors/shapes and make up. You can transform and shine in the colors that are most suitable for you. You have to trust in yourself no matter what! and that is exactly my mantra now. Even If you have failed in something,it's still not a reason to give up!! It's a lesson that will help you get stronger and achieve your goals at the right time!!! Shine and show them that you can! you are never less than anyone else. I want to be a role model so i can inspire people and give them hope and confidence to think that if you put your mind to something, you can do anything you desire!! No matter where you've been or are at ,you can still turn your life around!! It's never to late!!
