Welcome to Wild Riot Collective
Girls talking: DV, Mental Health, Chronic Illness, Body Positivity, Empowerment, Biz and Support
We are a safe international platform for all women to connect, collaborate and support each other. Our community is a place, where women can share their stories, be vulnerable, honest, inspire and be inspired!
We are well-known for our wine tasting live events, skill-building workshops and zoom catch-ups. As well as introducing you to the most inspiring badass babes through interviews that will change your life. You will also have the opportunity to tune in with our various mentors and ask them questions.
Wild Riot Collective movement was born out my own personal journey and recovery from a DV relationship and subsequent chronic illness that I'm struggling with for years now. Being women we need to go through so many obstacles, pain and challenges men wouldn't even possibly imagine. That's why we need to stick together!
Going through never-ending challenges and hardships I knew I can never give up! Even though very often I felt lonely and overwhelmed as I didn't have anyone here, my family is thousands of kilometres away and the only friend who I thought I could count on wasn't there for me. All these years I felt like nobody could possibly understand what I'm going through, nobody could answer all my questions and worries. It all seemed like everyone else's life is easier, that they all have it figured out.
However, the more I started to be open about what I'm going through and talk about it to people the better I started to feel. I almost felt like getting wings, I felt unstoppable.
My whole life people were telling me what I should do, how I should feel, how to act, that I should study hard, get a good job, live to work, kill myself over getting a promotion, be successful, marry, be slim, have babies.. and all this by hitting 30. Everyone would reassure me that only then I can be happy, the truth is this pressure only led me to developing health issues. Only when I got sick I realised this is a bunch of BS and life isn't about it. Life is about following your dreams and enjoying every single moment as we never know how much time we have left. That's why when I got sick I have decided to leave EVERYTHING behind me, I left toxic relationships, packed my bags and left to Bali for a few months on my own. Even though I was terrified it turned out to be the best decision ever as I found myself, reset physically and emotionally, I pretty much felt reborn. In addition, I met the guy of my dreams who is very supportive. I buried someone else's dreams of me becoming a lawyer, I have started my own business and started to study positive thinking and life coaching.
So, I'm not saying that studying is bad, it's actually very good if you do or study what you love. In order to be successful, you have to learn new things all the time. I'm not saying that everyone should have their own business, as some people have amazing jobs and they love them and feel fulfilled. Creating this platform I want to show you that YOU ARE NOT ALONE, no matter what you are going through. There are thousands of people who are going through the same or similar struggles and we are in fact, STRONGER TOGETHER!
That's why Wild Riot Collective (WRC) was created, it's a riot against all the "we should". The only thing that we should is to BE HAPPY! We owe it to ourselves. Success is not so much about money anymore.
WRC was created out of the desire to help other women believe in themselves. I was on my own, but you don't have to be.
Everyone is welcome to join without prejudice and without judgement, you can feel free to be yourself, connect with others and talk about self-love, empowerment, dreams and self-worth. Our goal is to help you love yourself and change your mindset to lead a happier more fulfilled life.
Remember, you are only one decision away from a completely different life.
In tribute to MS, the disability that actually made me stronger.
