My name is Willa Eigo, & welcome to What She Is!
I’m a 20-something college student living in Boston, MA. I study acting at Boston University & will be graduating in Spring 2018! I’m passionate about so many things, but write mostly about my personal journey with my health, self care, life changes, & self love. I’m extremely type A, & also a Taurus. Soy lattes are my go-to & I’m mostly pescatarian.
I grew up in Phoenix, AZ, along with my sister/best friend, Thea. While Thea and I are very different, we’re also similar–both being performers & extremely passionate about social justice! I love Phoenix with all that I am & certainly hope to move back one day. My parents have always been very involved with the community & have instilled that sense in me as well. Holding onto my roots & giving back are two very important things to me.
I currently struggle a lot with loving myself. There are moments I can’t stand my body, or doubt my abilities, or feel absolutely helpless. There are moments when I feel sad or depressed or anxious. So much of what I write about is dealing with all of this. Relearning how to trust & love myself is one of the most difficult things I’ve ever tried to do, but I have so much hope that I’m on my way there.
A while ago, I read the quote “You’re not the kind of girl who settles. Keep not settling.” I took it to heart. For me, ‘Keep Not Settling’ means that I need to always strive to do my best. It means that I should post content I’m proud of. It means I need to keep working on my myself. And most importantly, it means that I need to hold myself to a higher standard. I strive to be a little kinder/smarter/funnier/braver/better every single day. I believe in living with purpose & never settling for anything less than my personal best. I hope this site inspires you to do the same!
