We're nominated for a Wales Start-Up award!
I’m so excited to share with you all that VALA has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Rising Star category at the Wales Start Up Awards! Creating VALA has been a whirlwind ride and I was passionate about us being a proudly Welsh brand, so it’s really lovely to be considered for this.
It’s my hope for the future that VALA can offer jobs to local Welsh people that want to work in a creative or sports field. I always felt when I was younger that I needed to be in London or another major city to really further my career, but this career development came at the cost of missing my home and family.
After nearly ten years living away in London and Australia and working in advertising, I moved back to Wales last year to train as a Personal Trainer and get VALA off the ground. Since coming home, I’ve been so inspired by the new independent businesses and networking events popping up and I am certain that we will be able to hold on to our local talent and reinvest into our thriving communities.
