We had the good fortune of connecting with Anita Bedolla and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Anita, do you have a favorite quote or affirmation?
“Life doesn’t have to be planned. Just roll with it and let it happen.”

I feel like this quote speaks to me because I have always been the type to know how I want my life to be. And, by that I mean graduate from high school, go off to college, meet the love of my life, get married , have kids and etc. I wish I can say that’s how my life went but no it didn’t. At the age of 16, I made the mistake of dropping out of high school, I just didn’t like school. I thought i knew better then my parents but of course I was wrong. I did do homeschooling online so I did end up getting my diploma but i wasn’t happy about it which I should be since I had graduated before my class of 2015 but no I was more disappointed in myself once I started to realize I wouldn’t go to prom and walk the stage like everybody else. It took me a while to move on and realize that part of my life plan just wasn’t going to happen and I’ve accepted that. Fast forward to today. I am 25 years old and I work as a secretary. I am currently thinking about what I want to do with my life because I know there’s more I want to accomplish. I will remember that quote. I just have to roll with and let it happen.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Aside from being a secretary I also have a YouTube channel (Ninaluvsglam). I love getting in front of the camera and show my subscribers my make up looks and random videos of me on vacation with my family.

It’s a challenge to film since I have a job. And, i am not always up for it. Even last year I had tested positive for COVID-19 and it put me in this depressed face of my life. I didn’t want to film anymore. But thankfully I overcame that stage and I feel much better today.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give a shoutout to my mom for never giving up on me. She is my role model and simply my everything. I can go to her with any idea and she is right there cheering me on. Thank you mom!
