Be yourself is good advice, so why don't more people do it?
As anyone who has dared to be their authentic self knows, putting yourself out there is easier said than done. For some like Rita Ora, being brave comes naturally. For others, it helps to see friends leading by example. That's where ABSOLUT Vodka's The Open Mic Project comes in. This revolutionary platform provides a safe space for anyone and everyone to share their voice (whatever it may be).
If you didn't know, Rita grew up as refugee and found her identity and self-acceptance through her music. That journey is exactly why Rita and The Open Mic Project are such a natural fit. If you share your story, too, you could even inspire a collaborative track about acceptance between Rita Ora and ABSOLUT Vodka.
