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

Building presence on Youtube, Instagram, and the blog site, I hope to reach as many women who need a platform like this to help them be a better them daily.

Drawing and painting has always been a hobby for me since I could remember. I use to catch myself playing in markers a lot when I was younger (around 4 5ish) pretending like I was doing my makeup. Read more>>
My Predestined One, formerly only known as my personal blog, “Waiting on My Predestined One,” began its conception 2012. The blog helped me to continue to push forward in my pursuit of motherhood, and to trust God’s plan for my journey to motherhood. Read more>>
My vision was to overcome obstacles that I faced due to growing up in poverty and I desired to channel that energy into becoming successful in my educational endeavors, climbing the corporate ladder, and becoming a successful entrepreneur. Read more>>
This question is so hard to answer because so many factors contribute to who I have become today. Um, since we don’t have much time I’ll be brief.

I found that there was definitely an opportunity to combine both worlds. What if I could share confidence tips from the beauty industry to the girls, and share genuine client feed back to the beauty industry from my girls!
