If there’s one thing author, podcast host, and reality TV star Stassi Schroeder does best, it’s owning who she is, what she loves (be it murder mystery docs or ranch dressing), and never apologizing for it. Stassi — who proudly identifies as a basic bitch, thank you very much — says, “when you actually embrace who you are, you form better connections with people. There are more opportunities for you because you’re being authentic.” As a New York Times best selling author of Next Level Basic, I’d say that Stassi is on to something.
Ahead of Her Conference: Inspire on June 1 in Los Angeles, where Stassi will be keynoting, the 30-year-old discussed her biggest lessons learned throughout her twenties with Her Campus. Spoiler: You’re about to feel very inspired.
