On being a powerful figure in her field, Rita said:
“Power is a word that is often used negatively when discussing it in relation to women in our society. Many equate power to being b*tchy or trying to dominate others, but not me. I feel powerful when I am able to affect other people’s lives positively. Things like getting jobs for others, helping young actors and filmmakers achieve their dreams, contributing to the success of my own personal projects, and making charitable contributions to those who need it, empowers me on a daily basis. Being inspired and passionate about what I do gives me so much energy – and you can equate that to power.”
Simi started her career in fashion by writing for the website RubysView.com and was the Deputy Editor of Complete Fashion. It is claimed that Simi has also styled top international celebrities such as Alexandra Burke.
