YouTube Influencer Alba Ramos is known for creating content based on clean beauty ingredients, and using natural brands to create beauty looks and hairstyles. But it’s not just about beauty for Alba: She’s also a mom who transitioned to cleaner, greener products after discovering her son had health issues, and was diagnosed with autism. Alba shares her journey with her more than 900,000 YouTube followers and more than 370,000 IG followers, and we’re thrilled to have her at the W.E.L.L. Summit this year. Here’s a little more about what she’s excited about, below.
What would WS attendees be surprised to learn about you? To know that I’m not perfect or have the answers to everything but I’ve learned and applied my lessons as learn more and more.
What first attracted you to W.E.L.L. Summit? I like that there’s a space for like-minded people to connect and learn from each other within several subjects surrounding bettering ourselves.
What are you teaching at this year’s Summit? I’d simply like to share a bit about my reason for finding my lifestyle important as a mother and a person who wasn’t always aware.
What does wellness mean to you? Wellness to me means caring for yourself, caring for your well being, caring for your health and how functional your future self will be.
What are you hoping to empower attendees with? I’d like to empower others to believe and acknowledge that what we consume and apply daily has a bigger effect on us. Being a mother to an autistic child, I’ve learned the most from having to search for ways to clean his system and clean up the life around him for his well being.
Anyone who is at the top of their game has had to persevere and cheerleader themselves. What is one thing others told you was impossible but you proved was possible? Many professionals and people in my circle did not think my son would improve or ever speak, and he’s living proof of how wrong they were.
What book are you reading now? The Better Baby Book, by Lana Asprey and Dave Asprey
What quote inspires you? If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. —Tony Robbins
The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships. —Tony Robbins
How do you feel good about yourself on bad days? We all have bad days, and we can’t learn from having a good day everyday. I think the first thing I try to remember is that I have more blessings in my life than anything. A bad day does not mean I have a bad life and a bad day does not mean I failed. There are far worse things that can happen to a person that may be much harder to get through and my bad day can be a chance to improve what is wrong at the moment.
How do you deal with negativity? From self? From others? I think it’s harder to deal with negativity from ourselves because we don’t always realize we put ourselves down as often as we do. We tend to believe what we believe until we get some type of confirmation or encouragement to think higher of ourselves but we shouldn’t rely on the acknowledgement of others to know our own worth and value. If negativity comes from others it only affects me if I believe what they believe. When someone says something to me or disapproves with me in a negative way, I try to understand why because it’ll show their intentions and you can take that negativity and possibly realize that the problem isn’t with you, it’s with themselves.
