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 East Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I’ve always felt different. If it means anything to you, my family has called me the “weird child” for as long as I can remember. I wanted to do important work, I loved to write, and I had an undeniable, burning urge to do better, see more, and get OUT of that town. You might even call it a mission. Read more>>
