14 Mar SK-II CATE BLANCHETT HANGOUT SESSION
Recently, I was cordially invited to be part of an exclusive group of ladies to speak to Academy Award Nominee Cate Blanchett and Malaysia’s very own pride and joy Yuna at SK-II’s #Changedestiny forum.
Waking up to be greeted with freshly baked croissants and pastries is what I call a perfect morning. Whilst we waited for the forum to start I thought it would be good to read up about Cate’s #changedestiny story and how her involvement in the movie ‘Carol’ has impacted her leading to her Academy Award Nomination. It sure is a great achievement.
In her words “It’s been a fascinating experience working with SK-II on its #ChangeDestiny campaign as I have had to opportunity to reflect on the big moments of change in my own life. It has given me pause to recognise the significance of changes that have ultimately resulted in the most extraordinary experiences. I’ve realised that embracing the fear of change has resulted in my life becoming much richer.”
“The chance to play Carol was a privilege. The complexities of Carol herself, in some ways, mirror many women’s lives even today and the struggles we face with ourselves. However, it was Carol’s great sacrifice to lead an authentic life and the change that came from it that I found so poignant. The beauty of the story for me was her brave choice to be herself in spite of enormous societal pressure.” Cate finishes.Now that’s what I call a lady ready to take on anything that come her way and never giving up no matter what. That made me reflect on how I have grown so much over the years and the support that I have been given by my family and friends as a beauty youtuber.
Finally, it was time to speak to Cate Blanchett and Yuna. Oh they were beautiful, strong and confident ladies! The encouragement and advises that was given lighted a fire in my heart to want to achieve more and I learnt about Cate’s beauty regime hehehe Now I know the secret ;)Thank you #SKII for the opportunity it will always be a memory for me. Also, for organizing a lovely breakfast set up and the special edition SKII x Cate Blanchett set.
