Meet Our "It" Women of 2021!: Featuring Sona Lazaryan
Say hello to Sona Lazaryan!
Sona is passionate about encouraging women and lifting them up, especially through fashion!
Ten years ago, Sona moved to Los Angeles with many aspirations. For as long as she can remember, she has always been a lover of fashion and art. When she would look at a piece by high fashion designers she wouldn’t just want to wear it, but instead she wondered “How did they come up with this design and what inspired them to create it in such a way?”
She knew that fashion was something she wanted to be involved in. Today, she works as an influencer, content creator and fashion expert, but she is not stopping there. Something big is in the works for Sona, her own American Dream, which she will be sharing with us all soon.
She did give us a hint, though...It’s fashion related!
Sona is continually inspired by seeing and knowing strong women. Women who are willing to better themselves everyday. She takes pride in working on herself every single day, from her health and what she eats, to how she looks and feels. Her goal is to inspire women to do the same.
“My goal is to inspire other women to take care of their body and mind, through reading books, working on their body to achieve their desired image, eating and thinking healthy, which will result in an overall healthy and happy woman.” --Sona Lazaryan
She wants others to be able to look at her and think “If she can do it, I can do it.”
Seeing progress is a huge motivator for Sona. When she sees women grow successful it makes her feel good. She chases this feeling and always does her best to lift up and encourage the women around her to achieve their goals and feel good about themselves.
So here is where fashion comes in...
For Sona fashion is so much more than just an external thing. Being well dressed is important to Sona because how she dresses is a reflection of how she feels on the inside.
“I really believe that a woman can change her emotional state of mind with a change of her style and attitude. If you wear clothes that make you feel confident, you will act confident.” --Sona Lazaryan
Sona always plans her outfits in advance, even when she goes to her pilates class, because the way she dresses in the morning has a lot to do with how she feels during the day. And she definitely wants to have a positive, productive day.
Along with following her passions and dreams of fashion and art, Sona is a mom, which is a full-time job. Sometimes, finding balance can be hard. There was a time when Sona would put too much pressure on herself. She would demand more of herself than she could actually handle and end up doing things that she wasn’t passionate about.
Soon enough, Sona realized that she needed to take a break from everything and really find out what and who she wants to be. As soon as she figured out those two things, everything started to go smoothly.
She advises other women experiencing similar situations to take the time to think and really understand what you want to do in your life as a whole, not just in the next year or two.
“And once you do, work every day, step by step on achieving your goal, and at the end all your hard work will get you where you want to be.” -- Sona Lazaryan
Currently, Sona is working 24/7 on her dream job. She wants to remind every woman out there that there is nothing you can’t do with a little hard work!
“Never let anything in your way stop you. Take every difficulty as a lesson and find the way to overcome and master it. Educate yourself, read books every day. Work very hard on yourself to become the woman who can inspire yourself. Make yourself proud.” -- XO Sona Lazaryan
