Tasha is the designer and owner of Jubly Umph, a cute and quirky brand of accessories with something (okay many things) to say.
Tasha's story...in her own words:
"Yep, I have that same old sob story. I was the fat kid, the outsider. I was always reading (still am), drawing away in the corners of my school books, moving around from school to school, introverted and depressed. It reads like a bad movie script. The movie is called ‘Coffee and Teen Angst.’
It sucked. I always felt different and my self-confidence was at an all-time low. I decided that if I always FELT different then I should BE different. I would travel the world and be an artist, a feminist, a vegetarian and a black belt in karate. I would stand up for what I believed in."
Be Weird, Stay Weird.
"I can’t say that finding the confidence to be all those things happened overnight, as it has been a very long journey. I still battle with depression and self-doubt every now and then, but I’m getting there.
My journey took me around the world through many different jobs and cities. It was a journey toward the belief that what I do is worthwhile, and the trust that I have something important to say.
I hope I can help you find the inspiration you need to embrace your weird, and stay weird too."
