Betty Lam is a beacon of positivity, a magnet for women who are passionate about life, and the owner/founder of Betty Glam Boutique.
My close friends say that my greatest strength is my ability to empower people around me, make people feel like they are the best part of my day, as well as being able to bring people together. My energy is also contagious and ever since University/ sorority days I have always loved getting everyone excited to come out for all sorts of events/activities/gatherings.
As one of my girlfriends (Hi Ashley H.!) would say I am one of the best “human-organizers.” My other friend Andreia M. would tell you that I am the magnet of the group – the one who brings her friends together. My other friend Rosie would say that “if they pass the vibe-check with you – they’ll pass it with me too.” It is the best feeling every time I introduce a new girl to the group, and they tell me how sweet/wonderful my girls are! I LOVE all my girls to bits – and there is absolutely nothing I wouldn’t do for them.
If there is ever anything exciting happening/coming up in Toronto – I always enjoy rounding up a bunch of my friends to go. What can I say – I love my city!
I am also that person in our friend group that keeps everyone up to date with who, what, where, and when things are happening – I enjoy doing it!
I always trust my intuition when it comes to people. Like they say, “energy doesn’t lie.” I am blessed to have such a wonderful group of loving, caring, drama-free, body-positive, genuinely kind, supportive, phenomenal group of girlfriends. I can honestly say that I trust these girls with my life (sounds dramatic, I know – but it’s true!).
For the past 2+ years, I have loved organizing group photoshoots and styling my girlfriends for my ‘Betty Glam Boutique‘. I always see my girls celebrating, encouraging, and hyping each other up – it’s such a beautiful and powerful thing to witness. I also find it so empowering to see girls comfortable in their own skin and OWNING and expressing their sexuality! I haven’t always been comfortable in front of the camera (just like every other girl, of course, there are still parts of me that I want to hide/change) – but over the years and with the support of my girlfriends, I started loving flaunting and embracing my body.
I say this all the time – to have good friends, you have to be one yourself. Friendship is a two-way street. No matter how busy life gets – SHOW UP for people you care about. I am that girl that would be the first to reach out to make a new friend or reconnect with friends. I believe in the significance of putting effort into friendships and keeping in touch and checking in on my friends (even if it is just online or via text when we can’t meet in person).
Surround yourself with supportive and confident women who applaud each other and believe there is room for everyone at the top – the quality of your life will improve drastically. There is always enough good to go around!
