My Strength is My Story with Nicole Weider, Project Inspired.
Ever doubted who you were and if you were enough? Nicole Weider shares her story of how she found balance through knowing Christ, lessons learned from being a Victoria Secret’s model to an actress and producer, to creating Project Inspired for young teen girls.
Nicole Weider is a wife of 7 years to Eric and mom to their adorable son, Elijah.
She is a former Maxim and Victoria Secret’s model. In 2010, Nicole founded the largest online community for teen girls called Project Inspired; where she helps girls find their inner beauty to build their self-esteem and confidence.
Nicole’s passion continued by starting a petition in 2012 called the Anti-Cosmo Mission. The goal was to get Cosmopolitan Magazine off the front checkout stands with an age limit imposed. Just recently, Walmart did just that — putting Cosmo with the other adult magazines.
She has previously worked with LightWorkers in a series called Devotional Mondays. When Nicole’s not sharing her love for God, you will find her on the big screen as a beautiful and talented actress.
“Nothing in life is achieved on our own.” ~ Nicole Weider
