Fashion Blogger + Washingtonian Style Setter
This is one confident Woman Warrior. Don’t mistake Anchyi’s sweet and soft spoken ways as a lack of motivation or confidence. Anchyi knows who she is and where she is going, and she isn’t afraid to express herself with her own personal style. As a mom with a full time job, and a fashion blog (Anchyi Adorned) on the side, she hustles day and night to pursue her passion in design and fashion. Her Instagram page is a work of art! It’s no wander she awarded the DC Style Setter Title. Here is what Anchyi has to say about being a Woman Warrior:Nickname: Anchyi

3 words that describe you best: Passionate, progressive, individualistic
1 interesting thing about you: My college degree was in something completely opposite of fashion and arts - Civil Engineering!
What does it mean to you to be a Woman Warrior? To be comfortable in my own skin. To live for myself. To lead instead of follow. To not be afraid or be apologetic to be me.
What inspires you to be a Woman Warrior? Being around passionate, spear-headed women entrepreneurs like Ashley and Paige! Surrounding myself with strong women who kick ass everyday to achieve their goals and dreams. Also - my son! Parenthood is the toughest job I've ever encountered. Everyday I learn something new and that's made me stronger than ever.
Who are other Women Warriors that you look up to? Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Arianna Huffington, Anna Wintour
If you could wish one thing for all Women Warriors, what would it be? Be an influence for young girls and wipe out teen/child self esteem issues, so they can grow up to be confident adults
How are you inspiring others to be Women Warriors? Currently I am using social media to influence others to be individualistic and creative in their everyday dressing. A good outfit exudes confidence, but it's not necessarily the most trendy piece as much as something that makes you uniquely "you". Looking great also comes from within, and in the future I plan on influencing in the areas of healthy eating and lifestyle as well.
