Let me start by shortly introducing myself. My name is Emil Levin, I am 22 years old and one of the co-founders of Helvin. I am a man of many passions and I will share much of it here on the blog. My prime focus lies with fashion, lifestyle & wellbeing though.
I was born with a muscular disease called SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). I'm not going to get too much into detail of how it works in this post, but basically what it does is making my muscles weak, which leads to me sitting in a wheelchair, which leads to me having a hard time lifting something as light as a glass of water, which leads to...ye you get it. Sounds pretty shitty right? Wrong.
While it might sometimes suck to be in this condition, I consider myself blessed. Because without it I wouldn’t be who I am today. If I could choose only one thing in this post that I'd want you to remember it would be this: ''Never let your circumstances determine your results''. So what do I mean by that? I'll tell you. Whether you're suffering from a disease or maybe you just are not comfortable with how you look, don't let that stop you from reaching your goals. Identify your problem and accept it. Rock what you have and enjoy the ride because I can assure you that it will be a hell of a ride if you do that!
Well, this turned out to be more of a wellbeing post than an introduction but hey, who say's we can't do both? We got some awesome content coming up in later posts including reviews, great outfits and tons more. Be sure to stay tuned.
