Natalya opens up about her experiences a journalist.
Natalya has shared her life experiences with the world in the form of her blog posts which can be found on various outlets but is primarily featured in the 'Calgary Sun'. In her latest blog post, Natalya detailed what it has been like for her to share the personal and in-ring experiences she has had since she began writing. The former SmackDown Live Women's Champion recalled some of her favorite blogs that she's written and learning experiences that she has had and here are a few excerpts from the blog:
I’ve been fortunate enough to do so many extraordinary things within WWE, and it really is such a pleasure that I can share it with you right here. Every week since my column began, my cousin Brooke buys the paper in Calgary and clips out my column and sends it to me. To see my writing in print is such an “aha moment” for me. It’s thrilling to know that someone is relaxing and drinking their morning coffee and reading what’s going on in my world. I feel like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. I never take for granted that I have this voice and reach to touch people around the world and even better, in my hometown of Calgary.
It’s been the most eye-opening learning experience travelling the world to far-away places like South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, Mexico and so many other amazing lands. Working with WWE on our many community outreach programs like Special Olympics and Connor’s Cure gives me the most inspiring stories to tell about human resilience. That’s my favourite stuff to write about: my journeys and the people I meet — especially the kids. Many kids going through tough times watch WWE on TV and tell me that they feel inspired to be strong and brave because of us. That makes me feel the need to be an even better person because I feel like I’m a role model to them, and that’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly.
