The Story of Beelieve
Hey, I'm Bee!
I am a world traveler and Founder of Beelieve Lifestyle and Apparel.
So far I have traveled 27 countries, I have lived in 6 different countries, and fell in love with living out of my backpack and connecting with all sorts of different people and cultures. I find that traveling gives me this sense of freedom and absolute love for life. I am a strong advocate of people visiting new cultures and landscapes to gain appreciation for the mass diversity we have on this beautiful planet.
In 2015 my friend and I traveled through Europe together, a trip we had been dreaming about since our high school-days. The trip was everything we could have imagined and more. The adventure we went on was incredible, but every incredible adventure doesn't come without its hiccups.
We had made it Poland, a country that was never on my radar as a 'must visit' but I am forever grateful it was on my friends 'must visit' list. Within a few hours of being there my mindset totally changed, this country was amazing and I couldn't get enough of it. The history, culture, food, architecture, everything had me lit up. I especially loved visiting the Salt Mines. However, I had a slight hiccup in Poland. I let my guard down for all of one second and it happened, I had become a victim of pick pocketing.
I remember thinking, "**ck! How did that even happen!" I had lost my I.D., hostel key, and my weeks budget that I had just withdrawn from the ATM. I stood there pretty upset trying to retrace my steps and convince myself I had left my wallet upstairs. When I decided to face the facts that it was all gone, I got quiet. I remember this feeling of gratitude towards Poland as a country and as an experience and thought to myself, "One hiccup cannot change how I feel about this country. One hiccup cannot take away the experience I've had here. So, it won't. But how can I make sure that this doesn't happen to anyone else?"
And now I am proud to say that I have designed and launched a clothing and accessory line based around smart, sensible, and stylish travel. I want all of you to go on adventures, take risks, push boundaries, gain confidence, explore cultures, give love, capture moments, and beelieve that you are capable of going places that you have always dreamed about.
I Beelieve in you.
