From monkeying around during an aerial yoga session, to cooking up a storm in the kitchen, or dancing in the lobby with her long-term love, it is clear to see that Hannah Bronfman is in love with her life. The entrepreneur, DJ, fitness guru and adidas ambassador has made a career for herself out of the things she loves doing most. Remix caught up with Hannah on a recent trip to New Zealand in the hopes that her zest for life would rub off on us too…
You’ve recently been announced as one of the adidas Ambassadors for the ‘Here to Create’ campaign. What does the phrase ‘here to create’ mean to you?
To me, ‘Here to Create’ means breaking down barriers and not allowing who you are to be put into a box, and using my creativity to inspire others.
In your video for adidas, you challenge viewers to try and label you. Why is not having a label important to you?
I grew up in New York City, went to college, and got a major. Life sometimes feels like you’re heading down this specific path that shapes the type of persona you’re ‘supposed’ to be. But the reality is, we live in a world where you can be whoever you want to be. We’re lucky to have so many tools like social media to create your own brand and market yourself in the way that you want. It was so important for me to not be put in a box because of where I came from, who my family were, and what I did or didn’t major in. For me, DJ’ing was an avenue to push outside from that. I applied the mantra to other areas of my life, too. I created a wellness and lifestyle destination website and it allowed my hobbies and all the things I love to become a part of my job. I’m so grateful to have been able to create a full career for myself out of the things I love to do the most.
You’ve become a poster girl for positive body image through your massive Instagram following, but how do you cope if someone says something negative?
The delete button was invented for a reason! When people write negative comments, I delete them. Not only because my page is a place where I’m trying to foster positivity, but I tend to notice that when negative comments are posted, my followers won’t hesitate in backing me up. It’s so nice that they have my back, but I don’t want negativity to breed negativity. So, the quicker I am to see something and delete it, the better I’m cultivating a positive message all round in terms of communication and within my community.
