At Storia PR, we love to feature people, places and things that inspire us – this includes people in the media. This week we’re introducing a new ‘Storia Time’ segment called ‘Storia Talk’ in which we introduce you to and interview media we work with.
For our first ‘Storia Talk’ post, we’d like you to meet Amy, a health and wellness blogger whose site is called ‘The Little Honey Bee.
Why did you start a blog?
I started writing my blog, The Little Honey Bee, in May 2013 so I could share my experiences in healthy living in the hopes of motivating and inspiring a healthy lifestyle in others. They say to start new hobbies when you undergo change, so that’s just what I did: I began writing The Little Honey Bee after I graduated from university and moved back to my hometown of Toronto. I was still figuring out a lot of this “healthy stuff” but wanted to share my healthy living story and passion for fitness and nutrition so I started to write. Through many trials and changes, I think I’ve got it figured out now: I have discovered the power of nourishing my body with real food and exercising to find strength and confidence.
Who or what inspires you?
I am inspired by so many people and a variety of things and experiences. From my family, to my friends, to people I don’t even know – there is inspiration everywhere. While being motivated, inspired and influenced by others is a wonderful thing (and I hope to be a source of it); I think that in order to be successful in our lives we must be our own source of inspiration. I try to inspire myself to do better, run further, lift heavier, eat greener and pursue my dreams.
What can’t you live without for 24 hours (aside from food and liquid)?
As sad as this is, I probably couldn’t live without my phone for 24 hours. I am directionally challenged so I need my map to get me to places; I take pictures of everything; I keep in touch with friends and family; I love my CNN app; and I am slightly obsessed with Instagram.
Most interesting journalism subject to date
I have always loved to write and began writing for the “kids section” of the Toronto Star (called Brand New Planet) when I was around 12 years old. I did most of their sports writing and got to interview Chris Bosh when he was playing for the Toronto Raptors. Interviewing a “celebrity”, at such a young age, was a great experience. I learned how to comport myself, what questions to ask or avoid, and that celebrities are neverrrrr on time :)
