Sofia Fima Founder & Creative Director Fashion Lewiston, Maine
About Dianna
Hi there! I am the founder and creative director of SOFIA FIMA, a handbag brand making luxurious bags with impeccable detailing, that can carry everything I need for a successful day as a professional working woman and at an affordable price. My goal is for women to feel empowered, confident and beautiful as they go about their day.

My father Fima said it best when he said, “If you don't have your health you don't have anything.” I find that to be truer than ever before as I balance entrepreneurship with my family and personal life – it is so important to feel your best, and if you don’t, to make your health a priority.

I lost my mom at a very young age. Health is life. This is something I need to constantly remind myself of because I have a very hard time taking care of myself. I am always the last thing I take care of.

Interested In

Collaboration, Mentorship, Networking, Friendship

Best advice you've ever been given

Believe in your gut and jump in 100%. I think it is so important to listen to and trust your intuition. When I know I’ve got a great idea worth pursuing, I dive in completely.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

Mentoring and teaching young women that the sky’s the limit. I love sharing my passion for design, fashion and architecture with young girls that may not be exposed to professional occupations at an early age. I love showing young women that they can cultivate passions and excel in something they love.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Failing my daughter.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Market validation through social media influencers and brand ambassadors.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Stop being so judgmental of yourself, love yourself, and give yourself permission to be confident. You are an amazing woman.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

As women and as mothers I think we are stronger together when we support each other. I am all about women's empowerment and walking into a room like you own it. Your network shares the same values and I am so excited to be part of this community!
