Femme Friendly was created in the summer of 2016. I had just returned to the Netherlands after completing my bachelor’s degree abroad and suddenly had a lot more free time on my hands. I decided to use my energy for a positive cause and started volunteering as a social media officer. Enjoying this new role and seeking a new challenge, I got inspired to start my own website. After quickly learning about hosting, domains, HTML and WordPress, my first website became reality!
Why “Femme Friendly”?
As a positively-minded person, I wanted to focus my website on inspirational and motivational content. I thought to myself:
What would I want to tell my former self?
Most importantly, I would tell her that she’s awesome, that she’s powerful and that she can do anything her heart desires. I would tell her that her dreams are not too big, that she’s beautiful and that she should never let anyone make her think otherwise.
I quickly realized that many other women might need to hear these words. It may be these exact words that could encourage them to go on that life-changing trip or to apply for that dream job. That’s why I decided to create a female-friendly website with inspiring posts and tips to motivate women to be the best version of themselves.
My friends were very excited about my initiative and joined the Femmely. They inspire me for new posts and are always there for me to give me advice. Have a good read!
