Special Fresh Faces Feature: Lady Boss Blogger, Elaine Rau

Hey guys! 

I am coming at you guys with a very special Fresh Faces participant. Here, I have a phenomenal Public Relations powerhouse and inspirational blogger. She was so kind as to feature me on her platform and I am honored! This post is a thank you to her to show my gratitiude as well as inform my followers of what an awesome woman she is. This is her story.

Elaine Rau is the Founder and CEO of Her journey towards entrepreneurship wasn't easy, nor was it expected. After college Elaine worked in various fields and positions jumping from job to job until she realized that her skills and abilities aligned well with the wedding industry. With her newfound revelation she pursued any and all wedding positions, broke into the industry, got certified as a wedding planner, worked her way up the corporate ladder and held the title as National Wedding Sales Manager to one of the largest photo and video companies in America. Even though she loved her job, her lifestyle, and the amount of money she was making, she longed for something more. She desired for two things: 1) to be able to control how she spent her time and 2) to connect with her creative side again, having studied studio art in college - she needed a creative outlet. In addition to everything else, her fiance lived in Honduras and they had already been dating long distance for a year and she was getting tired of it. So she quit, packed up her life in Chicago into two suitcases and set off to Honduras and to her new life. 

It wasn’t the smoothest of transitions, having barely planned anything prior to leaving wasn’t the smartest move either. She didn’t realize how much it would cost upfront to move and ended up spending $10,000 within the first few weeks she was there towards buying a car, getting a house, and other fees due to settling in a new place.
She didn’t speak Spanish, didn’t have a job lined up, and considering that Honduras has an unemployment rate of 85% - she knew had to get creative. So one day after a month of being in Honduras, she was sitting at home thinking about what skills she had to offer (and how no one wanted them here) and how she could make the most of a sad jobless situation, she thought back to my previous experiences in Chicago and came up with a plan of action. she was going to start a blog and write about the people that she wanted to be herself, a female entrepreneur. The point of is to elevate women who don't get the media coverage they deserve and need as well as create an online community of women who share insight and expertise on their field with the other women through our Facebook Networking Group.

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
