Birthed in NYC, bred in Boston, schooled in Miami and currently residing in Dallas, Unashamedly Me is a life long journey of Arlene Soriano, the founder of this brand. Having lived in 4 major U.S. cities, there has been a continuous reinventing of self that has occurred in her life to fit into her surroundings until the day that she met Jesus.
Realizing that her experiences, attributes and quirks make her who she is, she also realized that no one else in this world could be a better her than her. It made her heart burn for others to discover the same reality about themselves.
Her burden is particularly focused on the Christian Millennials who in today’s society seem like more of an oxymoron than a true people group with a need to be engaged and encouraged in their true identities.
In reference to Christian Millennials she states: “We’re a group of people who first and foremost love Jesus and love people. We’re a group who challenge the church in preferred traditions vs biblical instruction. We’re a group who challenge society on biblical rights vs social accountability. We love and prefer technological efficiency, asking questions and living as authentically as we know how to. We’re obsessed with food, travel and LIFE. We’re not much different than any other person but because we love Jesus or a part of the millennial generation, a social stigma is associated with us. I’m here to encourage others like myself and document a lifestyle blog showing that it’s okay to love Jesus and be a millennial in today’s society.”
Join her in the life-long journey of being unashamedly me, unashamedly you, unashamedly US.
“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:12-14
