In her powerful speech, Tijana Tamburic argues for changing the narrative about how we perceive and fit within the perceived boundaries of femininity and masculinity, thus helping us evolve and reach our full potential.
By building on her personal story, from embracing masculinity as a defense mechanism and living in highly competitive women environments like modelling to discovering the essence of vulnerability and the unseen, unheard, unappreciated wonder of womankind, Tijana Tamburic makes a powerful point of redefining power to include more femininity. She strongly believes that showing women and men they don’t have to fit within the perceived or imposed limits of femininity and masculinity to be powerful, but rather integrate both in our lives and allow them equal value in our world, can help us shine for all that we are.
Tijana Tamburic is a storyteller, a tough freelancer and the co-founder of Female Narratives. Moreover, she is a female who established her own #metamorphosis.
After a modeling agency suddenly dropped her for not being “thin enough”, Tijana co-founded Female Narratives with associate model Franziska Klein. An overnight idea, the feeling that something was missing and a 2-people decision – this is how a creative agency that operates to connect brands to real female freelancers & real stories began.
Tijana collaborates with clients like Squarespace, North Face, Bumble, W Hotels and loads of female-led ethical brands. Her stories come in many different forms: a branding concept, an experiential marketing strategy, a social media campaign or a travel/culture article.
She is a UCL history graduate with experience in publishing, press, PR, production, project management and editorial roles. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
