VIDEO: ‘I Am Confident. Am I Confident?’ Episode 1

ICON IMAGE FINAL 3

Aisha explores the relationship between our self confidence and the ways it affects us in the lives we lead. 

‘I Am Confident. Am I Confident?’ is a three-part video series exploring the secrets, truths and intricacies of self-confidence. Each month a new episode will be released, with a new question answered by three different participants.

This week we ask: Can You Tell Us An Occasion Where You Have Not Felt Confident? and features musicians ThisisDA, Eva Lazarus and filmmaker Will Oklok-Taylor.

When I first joined the Rife Magazine team I was aware of all the seemingly confident people surrounding me. When finding my voice, my place and my feet at the beginning of the journey,  my feelings of  inadequacy would pop in from time to time. So I wanted to make a project that explored the different confidence identities we manifest in our lives and the experiences we have with them.

So..

May I introduce you to the humans of the ‘I Am Confident. Am I Confident?’ project:
