Victoria Beckham pens emotional and insightful letter to her 18-year-old self
Singer and designer Victoria Beckham has written a letter to her 18-year-old self for Vogue magazine and in the editorial piece, she opened up about how difficult she found her move to Spain.
She recalls moving between America, England and Spain to support her husband David Beckham's football career and explained that relocating to the latter was the most difficult challenge of her life. She wrote:
"You will follow your man around the world, moving from Manchester to Spain, and then America. In Spain you will revel in watching him enjoy some of his best footballing days. Spain is also where you will lay the foundations for your own fashion brand by collaborating with others on denim and sunglasses."
"But I need to warn you: a lot of your time there will be really hard. I’m not afraid to say now what a horribly difficult time it was. People will say awful things. You will be a laughing stock. Every time you turn on the television or look at a newspaper it will seem as though someone is having a go at you and your family. You will learn how mean other women can be. (And it will teach you always to support the women around you, to take them on a journey with you.) Others would crack under the pressure, but you won’t."
Victoria Beckham, meanwhile, was recently appointed OBE for her services to the fashion industry in the New Year Honours List.
