CB&HH introduces it’s new section: YOUR CAREER. Bloggers are invited to write a post about their career, their dream job, or their current job. Anything that will inspire a reader to work hard to conquer its dream of becoming a famous singer or an engineer for Google. It’s your time to shine and inspire others too!.
1. Learn everything you can about the industry.
Find contacts and network with others who are currently involved in your field of interest; then, offer to buy them a cup of coffee and pick their brain about the industry. Read magazines, blogs, and books relating to your dream career – the more information you have, the more knowledgeable you will be when it comes time to the job-application process.
2. Don’t fall prey to saying “one day…”
Start today! Go do it now! Have you always wanted to learn a skill that could boost your attractiveness as a candidate to an employer? Whether you’ve wanted to learn to speak Spanish, learn computer coding, or write a novel, don’t wait for “one day” because “one day” doesn’t exist – there’s only Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on my calendar, how about yours!?
3.Dress the part.
In order to be taken seriously as a professional in your field of interest, it’s important to follow the guidelines of the office dress code, whether these rules are formally established or merely expected. A skirt that’s deemed “too short” could send the wrong impression to a higher-up – therefore costing you that promotion you had your eye on.
4. Work Hard.
This is a no-brainer, but just remember: no matter how much “good luck” comes your way, the most important way to achieve your dreams is to put in the work. The more passion, effort, and confidence you assert, the more likely it is that you will succeed in whatever career endeavors you embark on!

I know, these videos are a few months old. But i cant help to love them!
I consider myself a feminist. No, I don’t hate men,in fact I adore them. I just believe in gender equality. I believe that we have the right to be treated the same way. Normally when someone hears I am a hardcore feminist, that person believes that I am bashing the male gender and that I believe us women are better. Feminism is actually defined as gender equality, as I said before.
A couple of months ago I listen to Emma Watson’s speech on the UN. I was impressed when I listened to her speaking. The Harry Potter star is known as a down-to-earth-fight-for-rights girl, but it still shocked me. She talked about how girls stop doing the things they love because they will get muscly, or it is not appropriate for a girl. And i wonder, why it is a problem? Why breaking the “pattern” is so bad? Why trying to be successful in the business world, or being a soccer player, or even being an engineering is frown upon or not common for a woman?
We are seen as the weak gender, when we are actually capable of doing everything a man can, and in high heels! Yesterday I was watching Gilmore Girls, and a little girl went to Lorellai crying because no Hobbit girl went to the trip. Lorellai told her that the girls went to other dangerous adventures, all wearing high heels. A little girl was shown that she has the power in her, even if mass media just show men being capable of power.
Feminism is the fight women -and brave men- do against stereotypes. A girl with a pretty face isn’t considered smart, and having a nice butt and breasts define us. We are also payed less for a job than men, even if our position is higher. Women can be leaders, we can be really amazing at that.
We are powerful girls, we really are.
