International Women's Day is a time to celebrate the achievements of women worldwide and to recognize the challenges they continue to face. As a female-led business, Sculpted By Aimee is proud to be part of this celebration.
As many of you know, Sculpted By Aimee was founded by Aimee Connolly. Aimee's mission was to create a range of products that were both high-quality and affordable, and make makeup easier for everyone. One of the most inspiring people on the Sculpted By Aimee team is Aimee herself. She has built the business from scratch, starting with just a few products and a small social media following. Today, Sculpted By Aimee is an ever growing business spanning across Ireland, the UK and most recently UAE. This success wouldn't have been possible without Aimee’s passion and determination, our loyal customer base and a team of passionate employees.
We reached out to the Sculpted By Aimee team and asked them about the women who inspire them the most. Here are some of the inspiring women they mentioned.
"I am an extremely lucky lady to be surrounded by extraordinary women in my life. From family, to friends, to mentors and colleagues, there really isn't a day that goes by that I don't feel empowered. However, if I'm to pick the penultimate women who empowers me like no other, hands down, the title has to go to my incredible and everyday inspiring mother; A mum, a grand-mother, a best friend and absolutely everything in between (full time chef, laundrette & taxi driver for years), her sheer determination, unwavering love, caring nature and work ethic is anything short of unrivalled. She has been my number one supporter in life and a tower of strength, a shoulder to cry on and an ear to burn more times than I can remember. If I turn out to be half the incredible woman she is, I feel like I'd have accomplished something really special in life!" - Nimah Kuzbari White, Head of Brand Marketing
"My sister Aisling inspires me because she is so strong and fearless. I'll always look up to her and she'll forever be my hero!" - Jen O’Connor, Senior Product Developer
"A woman that inspires me on international women's day is Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx. From door-to-door fax machine sales, to building a company worth $1.3 billion from the spare room in her apartment, Sara is the representation of hard work and never giving up. She is also a champion for women in the workplace and supporting female run businesses. Inspiring!" – Laura French, People Partner
"Diipa Khosla is an Indian fashion and beauty influencer and founder of the cosmetic brand 'Indē Wild. She inspires me because of her work ethic and how she manages to balance personal life and her entrepreneurship. I've seen her journey grow from breaking barriers for South Asian women, representing them globally and bringing her daughter up in a mixed cultural environment. She stays out of politics and focuses on her values and core priorities." - Tracy Smith, Senior CRM Manager
"My mother, Fiona, and my sister, Saoirse, are the two most inspiring women in my life who have always supported me unconditionally. My mother's profession as a therapist has been a great source of inspiration for me because of her unwavering commitment and compassion. On the other hand, my sister brings out my fun and carefree side, and I cannot imagine my life without either of them.." - Martha-Mae Hughes, Assistant Social Media Manager
"My mom Linda inspires me everyday! She is so hardworking and determined in everything she does and takes on, I hope to be half the woman she is some day!" - Amy McEneff, Social Media Executive
"The woman that inspires me the most would have to be my Mum. She has a great outlook on life, has always encouraged and supported me in everything I’ve done and I’ve been in awe so many times in my life at her strength. She was a young Mum, so we’re really close which I love. She also makes the best cups of tea!" - Laura McGettigan, Brand Manager
"A woman that inspires me is Vogue Williams. Her constant drive for continued success in her career while also keeping up with her health & fitness journey and also by being a mom." - Jennifer Kenna, Retail Brand Manager
"I'm lucky, as the youngest of 4 sisters I've had 3 amazing role models to look up to my whole life! My sisters inspire me in so many ways and are always my biggest cheerleaders. Each of them are so hard working and achieved great success in their careers, and taught me to always go after what I want in life." - Eadaoin Twomey, Senior eCommerce Executive
"Rihanna is a woman that inspires me. She owns several companies, including Fenty Beauty, Fenty Skin, and Savage X Fenty, all of which have an inclusive approach to product development and marketing. Not only is she a highly successful artist and business woman, she is also a mom. She is the perfect example to women around the world that you can 100% have a successful career and be a great mom." - Zoe O'Connor, Senior Customer Service Executive
"My inspiration person is my sister Claire - “Side by side or miles apart, sisters are always connected by heart.” - Roseanne Healy, Customer Service Executive
"A woman who inspires me is Vicky Phelan. She was a true powerhouse who fought with such bravery and determination despite the health challenges she faced to make real change in women's healthcare now and for generations of Irish women to come. Her courage inspired a nation." - Ciara McCartain, Junior Buyer
