Trailblazers: Arlington

The editorial team has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more.  With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.

Below, you’ll find some incredible trailblazers from in and around Arlington that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I’ve always wanted to start a blog ever since my parents divorced in 2012. I was going through a very difficult time in my life and there wasn’t anyone, I could really talk to. I use to write in journals a lot, blogging seemed similar, but I was afraid of what others would think about me if I wrote publicly. When I moved down to Texas from Vermont, September 2016, I didn’t bring my journals with me. Read more>>

Makeup has always been a passion of mine. Everything about it is art. I went to college and studied legal studies. For about 6 years, I was a paralegal to great attorneys. In 2017, I had a beautiful baby boy. This forced me to quit my job and dedicate my time to raising my little one. Having a career has always been important to me. Read more>>
