My Story

Once Upon a Time…

I was walking home from the Barclays center with my husband, crying about how much I hated my day job. I was working 9 to 5 as an interactive designer for a company that was totally archaic, feeling brought down by the doldrums of corporate culture, and frustrated with my career I wanted more with my life. At the time I was working on Feminist Wednesday, my feminist storytelling blog. I was finding real inspiration through the blog, interviewing and sharing women’s stories. But working on it after hours and in between my job wasn’t enough. My day job was suffocating me and I had to get out.

So walking home that cold winter night I decided to take the leap, quit my job, and launch myself into the total unknown. All I knew was that I wanted to work on uplifting and sharing women’s stories full time. What I didn’t know was that after that decision my life would change forever.
