For those that I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet, my name is Olga Angelidis. I am socially creative, culturally driven, and love building new relationships. I am heavily involved in the Russian community in Melbourne and beyond. My journey to RED started when I created a few social groups for networking purposes, to help people find friends and build business connections within our community. I envisioned a hub where our community could come together, offer each other our unique products and services, and most importantly embrace and celebrate our vibrant culture. Today, the Russian Women’s Network groups have grown to more than 5,000 members throughout Australia.
Next, I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to have a glossy magazine to serve our community and bring our culture, ideas and values to life? RED magazine was born in 2012. Since then, we’ve published seven print magazines, all of which have received a great response from the community. Now that we’re in 2015, changes, transitions and growing experiences are happening. I truly believe that anything is possible if you have the right attitude, supportive family and friends, a strong connection to your cultural background, a good set of values and beliefs, and most importantly – a passion that drives you closer toward your goals each and every day.
That leads me to my next endeavour.
RED is taking over the digital landscape and transitioning from print to online. We are embracing this change to the fullest. We want the magazine to become more accessible to our community, for free. The content will stay the same but will now spread much further and attract far more readers. Regular updates will allow our community to engage with one another, support our small businesses, and share our similar interests. Articles will be published in both English and Russian. We are excited about this transition and are committed to success. If that sounds exciting to you are well, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I would love to work with you.
