Redefining Beauty with Amanda Z.
Amanda is someone who simply must be comfortable in life - without comfort she is not going to get as much done or feel as good. She discovered Trusst through a friend and the rest is history.

What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty to me means falling in love with yourself and accepting who you are. It's not about how a person looks or what size their jeans are that makes them beautiful.
What does being comfortable mean to you and your life?
Being comfortable is the most important thing in my life. If I don't feel comfortable I'm not as productive or engaged in what I'm doing.
How did you discover Trusst?
My friend Caroline started working for the company and told me to check it out because she thought it would be beneficial to my life!
What is your favorite thing about Trusst and/or the products?
That they're designed to help women be comfortable and that it's a company founded by a strong woman.
What do you do on a daily basis? What builds your confidence?
I spend most of my days with my pup, Brody (unless I'm working). We take two walks a day to try and expend some of his energy but also hang out at the dog park quite often. If we're in the house, I am either writing fictional stories or researching for the podcast I cohost. To build my confidence, I try to go to the gym a few days a week, because I am insecure about how I look sometimes. But, because I value my work and creative process, that confidence comes from posting my stories online and looking over the listener count and reviews for my podcast.
Why did you choose this spot for your photograph? What does it mean for your life/lifestyle and you?
This is absolutely one of my favorite selfies of myself that I have ever taken. I was on a trip for work and had just gotten back from a college fair, I had forgotten a sweatshirt and it was cold, so I ran into a store and bought a cheap dark blue sweatshirt (that quickly became my favorite sweatshirt that I own). When I put it on and got back to where I was staying I noticed how the sweatshirt was making my eyes pop and I had my makeup done, so I had to take a selfie. My eyes are my favorite physical feature and I just love how they look in this pic.
