Meet the Team - Serena
Fresh out of high school, I had zero idea on what career I wanted to pursue. I tried many things, from a Business degree to an Education degree, I had no luck. I soon meet Jules, asking for me to be her nanny! I put the job off for a while as I was so nervous and wasn’t sure if I would be good enough. As soon as I met those twins, I knew we were going to have the best friendship. These beautiful twinnies are like the little sisters I never had! Don’t get me wrong, I love looking after kids, but after a while I realised I needed something more challenging and stimulating But hey, colouring in and choreographing dances is a hell of a lot of fun.
When I first heard of Happy Collective, I thought it sounded awesome. Selling vibrators, hmm… so cheeky! The fact that my nanny boss Jules is selling them was a major score in my head… discount discount discount. Just kidding! But in all seriousness, I couldn’t wait to see what all the happy vibes were all about!
Whilst the kids were asleep, I helped Happy Collective with some PR work, and I loved it! I told all my friends what I was doing, and they were so excited for me. As a group of young girls we sure do love our vibes and are open about it! However, I didn’t quite get the same reaction from people, say over the age of 40. I still don’t really understand why, but hey, that’s what Happy Collective is here for. To change the stigma around a category that shouldn’t even have one in the first place!
I have found it challenging starting a new role. It’s super weird to be around adults all day and not have to take swear words out of my vocab. I am just finding my place among all the craziness that comes with launching a new business. All the beautiful women at Happy Collective are so welcoming and have been well... happy to have me!
Who would've thought one day little happy Sez, would grow up and sell little happy products. But look, here I am today working as the first employee for Happy! I am so beyond grateful to work at this amazing company, my offer of employment letter is even framed in my room! I absolutely adore what I do and hope to be here for a very long time. Very happy vibes all round…. S x
