Be Curious: Ashley Rose Carney's Fresh Story
Posted on 07 August 2014
1) What does being CURIOUS mean to you? As an individual? As a global citizen?
Ever since I was a little girl I've been a curious one. I love how I get to encompass this concept with Same Sky's BE FRESH campaign.
I am curious about everything, particularly how people live their lives outside the realms of everyday life here in America. When I think about where my true curiosity lies, I am automatically drawn to my passion to travel the world. It was my curiosity that brought me to a special place like Nepal. Little did I know at the time, it would change my life forever for the greater good.
2) We want to hear your Fresh Story! When was the last time you were CURIOUS?
When I was 24 years old, I left my beautiful life in Colorado to embark on a seven-month journey with no plans, no itinerary and no expectations. It was my curiosity that drove me the whole way along. My curiosity led me to start up my own business, supporting the women of Nepal by bringing their hand woven bags to the states. Ultimately my goal is to support women from many different countries and walks of life. I truly feel my curiosity is what will bring me to that point.
3) We find you inspiring, how would you share or encourage your readers to be CURIOUS, too? Do you have any tips or challenges for them?
We would love it if you would share! As a young woman I can only say that curiosity lies in the desires of your heart and if you don't see those desires through, you may feel as though you've missed out. It is never too late to pursue your dreams to love and live out all your curiosities. It can and will take you places you've never been before. Keep doing. Keep giving. Keep being FRESH!
