Kathryne Mejias: The Transformative Journey to Born For More

In a world where beauty and glamour often take center stage, Kathryne Mejias‘ journey is a powerful reminder that true transformation goes far beyond appearances. Her path to creating the Born For More brand is a testament to her unwavering commitment to empowering women from the inside out, instilling them with the confidence and self-belief needed to make a lasting impact on their lives.

Kathryne’s story unfolds against the backdrop of a successful career in the fashion industry. As an assistant creative director for a renowned women’s wear brand, she was part of a groundbreaking fashion campaign that not only celebrated women of all ages but also reached out to those in need. The campaign’s mission was to demonstrate that women, regardless of their circumstances, could feel fabulous in the right clothing.

Beyond the runway, the campaign partnered with charities and nonprofits supporting women in shelters and facing financial hardships. For many of these women, choosing their clothing had never been an option; they relied on donated garments. Kathryne’s role was to welcome these remarkable women and assist them in selecting clothing that resonated with their preferences.

Witnessing the transformation in these women was a deeply moving experience. The radiant glow that emanated from within as they looked at themselves in the mirror left an indelible mark on Kathryne. It was at this point that she began to understand the profound impact of not only external transformation but also the importance of nurturing inner empowerment.

Inspired by this realization, Kathryne took the initiative to organize her event in collaboration with a battered women’s shelter in Hamilton, Ontario. She rallied clothing companies to donate winter coats, sweaters, and pants, while also arranging for makeup artists, photographers, and motivational speakers to uplift these women’s spirits.

However, it was during this journey that a profound insight struck her – transforming the external appearance was essential, but it was equally crucial to address the inner transformation. Why were these women in challenging situations in the first place? What led them to unhealthy relationships and financial hardships?

This moment of introspection laid the foundation for the birth of the Born For More brand. Kathryne realized that everything is energy, and by shifting our internal vibrations, we can create profound changes in our external reality. Her journey had prepared her to become a beacon of hope for women seeking a deeper transformation.

Kathryne’s own life was marked by patterns of self-doubt and low self-esteem, despite outward appearances of beauty and confidence. Her participation in the Miss Canada pageant, representing Miss Quebec, revealed the deep-seated fear of judgment and a struggle with public speaking. Little did she know that the most significant judgment was coming from within herself.

Recognizing her own patterns became a turning point in her life. It allowed her to step far out of her comfort zone and excel in areas where she had previously felt inadequate and fearful. The fashion industry, despite its allure, didn’t align with her soul’s purpose, leaving her feeling drained rather than fulfilled.

Kathryne’s experiences didn’t stop at the fashion world. She had also faced a lack of self-worth, struggled with unfulfilling careers, and attracted relationships that mirrored her own doubts and insecurities. Trying to fill the void within with material possessions and unfulfilling goals, she realized that her true quest was to reconnect with her authenticity.

This realization sparked a determination to shed the layers of inauthenticity that had accumulated over the years. Kathryne was determined to break free from the shackles that held her back from living a life worth living. It was a journey of self-discovery, introspection, and empowerment.

Today, Kathryne Mejias stands as a testament to the transformative power of inner growth. Her unwavering commitment to helping women unlock their inner potential and live lives that ignite their souls is at the core of Born For More. Her journey from self-doubt to self-belief is a source of inspiration, reminding us that we all have the power to transform and choose a path that resonates with our true selves.

Kathryne Mejias is not just the founder of Born For More; she’s a living testament to the brand’s core message – that everyone is “Born for More.” The past does not define who you are; it’s the choices you make that determine your destiny. Kathryne’s journey serves as a guiding light for women seeking to reclaim their inner power and rewrite their life’s narrative. In her words, “Believe in yourself, choose yourself, and know you were Born for more – all you have to do is choose that possibility.”
