Here is a lovely little Q&A about Rashina - one of amazing our contributors to Belong ISSUE 03!
WHO ARE YOU?/ I'm a digital and content strategist who loves spreading happiness and positivity, predominantly through the medium of hugs and pep talks (a good hug can solve pretty much anything). I'm also a chocolate enthusiast, avocado fiend, and a lover of languages and travel. ]
WHERE DO YOU BELONG? / Floating on my back in the sea, preferably in the Maldives.
WHAT IS YOUR "WHY"? / I absolutely adore fixing things. I really enjoy looking at something and seeing how it could be better-the process of improvement is a beautiful journey and I love seeing things blossom and grow with time (and a little bit of love!).
HOW DID YOU GET HERE? / My journey has been a haphazard, confusing mixture of various different jobs and skill sets. The only thing I can say is that I never knew I'd end up here, yet it somehow feels completely right.
IF WE WALKED INTO YOUR LIFE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY, WHAT WOULD WE SEE? / I'd most probably be in the middle of having lunch, furiously replying to emails, and preparing for the next urgent deadline. I'm usually found in either gym gear, or an extremely floaty dress (no in-betweens).
FAVORITE QUOTE OR WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT? / This one is a John Mayer quote. It's something he said during a live performance of a song at a concert that I didn't even attend (I actually heard it when listening to a recording of it, promptly lost the song name, and had to wait years until I retrieved it): ""Don't be scared about next Tuesday. Tuesday hasn't happened yet. Summer isn't over. Tell your soul that summer isn't over"". "

WHAT IS YOUR UNIFORM? /My default outfit would have to be some ballerina pumps, and an extremely floaty dress.
IN THE INFINITE RAINBOW OF COLORS, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU BE AND WHAT WOULD YOU NAME IT? / Terrific turquoise
TELL US A SECRET! / I am truly one of the most indecisive people I know. I once spent two hours trying to choose a restaurant!

LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? / Ferris Bueller's Day Off
WHAT DO YOU DO TO STAY INSPIRED? / The times that I feel most inspired are usually when I'm outside in the world, watching and listening. I love watching the world go by. Seeing people walking around about their daily lives fills me with a deep sense of content and happiness.
CURRENT FAVORITE SONG? / Davy's on the road again
BIGGEST QUIRK? / I'd say that I jump into very deep conversations with people I barely know and seem to meet people in extremely random locations and situations.
