#11 Creating a Life of Your Dreams and Re-writing Your Story with Alexa Curtis


Born and raised in small town Mansfield, Connecticut, Alexa Curtis knew she was
different. When she entered middle school, all the bullying she endured led her to needing an outlet to escape. In 2011, at just 12 years old, she started a fashion blog; A Life in the Fashion Lane.

As Curtis evolved as a person, her blog naturally shifted from fashion to discussing
sensitive topics that teens and young adults face every day. A Life in the Fashion
Lane was changed to Life Unfiltered with Alexa Curtis and became a lifestyle website
and podcast for teens & parents discussing topics such as social media and mental

On this week's episode, we discuss:

  • Creating the life of your dreams

  • Re-writing your story and embracing your past

  • The impact of social media on our mental health

Curtis has spoken at numerous colleges; Northeastern, UConn, Eastern
Connecticut, Rutgers along with high schools. In October 2018, Curtis spoke alongside Amal Clooney and Serena Williams at Penn Women and in Sept 2018, Curtis added ‘host’
to her arsenal as she launched her own radio show on Radio Disney called “Fearless
Every Day” with Alexa Curtis. “Fearless Every Day” is the first of its kind and is
breaking new ground for the Radio Disney brand.
