SHE

I'm still so overwhelmed from Friday night's SHE Movement event that my cousin Andrea and I have been organizing for the past two months. Two cousins who were at odds with the world decided to band together and seek out like minded women. The evening was magical and unless you were there, quite honestly difficult to put into words. But I'm working on it.


One weekend while we were working on our video that would be shown at the event, we decided to do a little photo shoot. Although there is an 8 year age gap between us, we have always been quite close but it was during these past two months that I really have got to witness this young woman coming into her own. She's smart, organized, insanely talented and confident. I'm not sure why we've never thought to work together in the past, but we definitely know that we are onto something big with this movement.

I couldn't be more proud to take part in something so meaningful, with someone who means so much to me.

Love you Andy! More to come on the launch night of this epic journey. (A little behind the scenes of everyone on Friday night can be found here).

  9. SHE MOVEMENT came into my life just at the right time, my BFF is going through one of the most difficult times in her life right now and I have been at a cross road for quite awhile and have no idea where to go, there are days, one is stronger than the other and can pick the other up,, I want to make a difference in the lives of others and I try everyday to connect somehow in someway,, I love knowing we all have a story, SHE MOVEMENT has reminded me to be kind not only to others but to myself! Thank you ladies.

  10. You ladies are so inspiring! Friday Night was such a great example of 2 beautiful women putting themselves out there on the chance of making things better (AND IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!) I am always amazed by how selflessly you guys created this movement, and by your brutal honesty ("We don't know what it is yet, but it's awesome!) I feel you guys are setting the example of how to put yourself out there as a woman and to fight for what you want. It is a tough road for all of us and I'm sure glad we don't have to do it alone! You ladies are great and I can't wait for the next event!
