FERLY PRADO (founder of Wear Success) is a professional dancer/model/actress who is originally from São Paulo, Brazil. Ferly moved to the United States when she was only 12 years old with her sister, while her parents stayed behind in Brazil to assure their daughters' education in America was paid for. As a professional dancer she worked for artists such as Beyoncé, Tina Turner, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey and Chayanne. Ferly has worked extensively on television on shows like GLEE, Two and a Half Men, Vegas, Bunheads, Singing Bee; and on award shows like American Music Awards (AMA's), Billboard Awards, Latin Billboard Awards, and Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMA's).
A word from Ferly:
"As a dancer and model I always felt very pressured to be the absolute best, to be perfect. That was a goal that seemed to always be in the future, so unabtainable. The word 'THEN' ruled my life for a very long time.
'I'm not perfect now, but if I do this THEN I'll look better.'
'I'm not the best now, but if I train x amount of days and y amount of hours a day, THEN I'll be the best.'
Compliments never seemed genuine or true to me. I was ruled by the future and who I could become, which meant that I was never 'enough' just as I was. A very deflating way to live, especially as a teenager.
And then I 'woke up'!
My desire is that every woman wakes up! My desire is that every woman gets enough guidance and support to feel what we all deserve to feel, and that's to feel 'GOOD'. Every woman absolutely deserves to feel GOOD and to FEEL GOOD NOW. I am still very goal oriented, very future focused (I highly encourage ambition, goal setting). But I'm learning to appreciate and respect the present just as much as the future, and to honor the past by learning from it.
I believe success is partially a state of mind, and it has to begin with how you feel and what you think about yourself. If you are not willing to see and accept your worth and purpose, not much in your life will change. Even if a thousand people believe in you and encourage you, it won't matter, unless you are in agreement with them."
