A few months ago, I was interviewed by the owner of the website http://thecurvychapter.com/features/custodia-chineva/ .For the section ‘We Love Diversity’ has originated from my own lack of diversity in the magazines. I rarely see a model in the Dutch regular fashion magazines that I could reflect on. Someone who looks like you and me. Anno 2017 there is still a lack of ethnicity and diversity. There is a slight increase but we have a long way to go. After all, every woman deserves to be seen and shine.
Therefore, we create our own platform here to celebrate more diversity. She attracted my attention through her very feminine style of clothing mixed with African influences. But her different hairstyles makes this lady unique. I’ve been following her Instagram for some time now where she shares her beautiful outfits with the world. I wanted to know more about her, do you read?
Tell me more about yourself?
My name is Custodia and I am a mother of an 8-year boy. I Live 1.5 years in The Hague. Although I am currently living in The Hague with great pleasure, I am Groninger of heart, there’s where I grew up. But originally I’m from Angola. I’m following a degree in college. I’m a blogging and I work as a part-timer in a clothing store.
What is your blog about?
Fashion/lifestyle is what I talk and write the most about because, in fashion, you have more diversity, you can change your personality by wearing some kind of clothing. Additionally, you have the opportunity to play with your clothes as you create a look for a photo shoot.
Where do you get your inspiration today?
I love to read, even when I was a teenager, I was addicted to buying magazines, nowadays my inspiration comes from everyday things. Mainly from children, nature and art. Actually, I see everything as an inspiration.
Who are your favorite bloggers/influencers right now?
I’m currently obsessed with African bloggers and influencers, not just of my African roots. But more out of curiosity and pride. I am always looking for what they wearing and how they style their clothes. I also love the Dutch bloggers, I like to see how they develop into international bloggers.

If you should say something to another woman about Confidence and feel confident, What would you like to say?
You are unique. Submission must never be an option. Be you and do you!
Don’t mistake confidence for arrogance. There’s a difference between knowing your worth and having a big ego. When you know who you are and what you have to offer, the opinions of others become irrelevant.
I hope you like it. Have a beautiful day and may God bless you above all your acceptation
